SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Business Journal today recognized Edmunds.com, the premier destination for car shopping, among the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles in the large company category (+250 employees). The honor marks the fifth year in a row that Edmunds.com has been recognized by LABJ as a top workplace in Southern California.
"One of the highest priorities at Edmunds.com is to support a culture that's worthy of the top-quality individuals who do such great work for us every single day," says Edmunds.com CEO Avi Steinlauf. "By securing this honor for a fifth straight year, we feel that we're setting a standard for innovative workplaces, and we expect to continue leading the way for many years to come."
Edmunds.com proudly operates a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) in which employees are offered the freedom to work at any time from any location in which they can most effectively deliver their expected results. The policy also allows Edmunds.com employees the freedom (subject to certain requirements) to take as much paid time off as desired.
Since winning the accolade last year, Edmunds.com has added even more perks, including weekly yoga and meditation classes, and monthly in-house masseuses.
Each year the Los Angeles Business Journal, a weekly publication examining commerce within the LA economy, recognizes the best employers in Los Angeles County. The assessment process reviews company benefits and policies as well as results of an employee engagement and satisfaction survey. The annual assessment is managed by the Best Companies Group.
Edmunds.com has also been recognized by Los Angeles Business Journal as a leading institution among rising tech companies in Santa Monica's "Silicon Beach." The company has previously earned national recognition from The Huffington Post, BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal and Architectural Record.
