SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Edmunds, the leading car shopping and information platform, today announced inclusion in Entrepreneur's Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures. Created in partnership with culture management software and service provider CultureIQ®, the Top Company Cultures list ranks Edmunds as one of the top 50 large companies, and recognizes the company for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly contributes to company success.
"At Edmunds, our people are our greatest asset, so we place a great deal of emphasis on creating a corporate culture that caters to them as people, not just employees," said Avi Steinlauf, CEO of Edmunds. "From policies including a Results-Only Work Environment and extended parental leave, to bonus perks like cash toward vacations and our award-winning "Edquarters" office space, everything we do reflects our ethos that people are the backbone of our success and we work hard to make Edmunds a place they want to be."
"Great company cultures don't happen on their own. They're the result of great leadership, and a conscious effort to make everyone on a team feel engaged and important," says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. "The honorees on our 2017 list are proof that strong cultures make even stronger companies. Entrepreneurs at all levels can draw inspiration from them."
The full list, presenting a total of 153 companies categorized as small, medium or large companies — with 25-49 employees, 50-99 employees and more than 100 employees, respectively — is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.
The list shares core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped shape the top companies' high-performing cultures as well as practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.
"A high-performance culture leads not only to employee engagement but also to measurable business results," says Greg Besner, founder and CEO of CultureIQ. "These organizations show us that great companies start with great culture."
The rankings for all companies were determined using CultureIQ's methodology for measuring high-performance cultures. Employees at each company received a survey of multiple-choice questions, and the answers were used to assess a company's strength across 10 core components of culture — collaboration, innovation and communication to name a few. The companies with the highest scores joined the Top Company Culture list in ranking order. To be considered for the ranking, a company must have at least 25 employees, have been founded before January 1, 2015, and be headquartered in the U.S.
