SEATTLE, June 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- FlowPlay, creator of the most powerful immersive gaming platform, is adding to its growing list of corporate awards and recognition of its company culture. In Inc.'s Top Workplaces, an award program for the best national workplace environments, FlowPlay's strong benefits package and unique perks stood out among thousands of companies around the country. The company was also named to Seattle Business Magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For, an award that salutes Washington companies setting the ideal standard for executive leadership, benefits, rewards and recognition, corporate culture and training. These awards underscore FlowPlay's continued dedication to its employees, ensuring their happiness in an industry often known for its challenging work environments.
"When we started the company, our goal was to create the kind of organization that we'd want to work for. It was our belief that if we could achieve this goal, everything else would fall into place," said Derrick Morton, co-founder and CEO of FlowPlay. "As the company matured, we held true to this value, so that even during periods of rapid company growth, employees' success and happiness remained a priority. Because of this approach, we've been able to scale and create great products, while retaining much of the same staff we had on the day we opened our doors in 2007."
Only 346 U.S.-based companies received recognition as one of Inc.'s Top Workplaces in 2019. Of more than 2,000 national companies that vied for the award, FlowPlay rightfully earned its ranking by showcasing dedication to its employees by offering:
- The full spectrum of insurance benefits, including health savings accounts;
- The full spectrum of financial benefits, including stock ownership, tuition reimbursement, profit sharing and financial planning services;
- Paid maternity leave longer than 8 weeks, paid paternity leave and paid time off for community service;
- Wellness benefits like stress-relief breaks, an onsite fitness center and company support groups;
- And workplace experience benefits that include work from home options, flexible hours, onsite and offsite happy hours and social events, casual dress code, gaming rooms, free daily lunch and ride-sharing to and from work.
FlowPlay's agile, innovative company culture also stood out on Seattle Business Magazine's list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For – an award the company has won previously. Driven by a flat management system that promotes shared responsibility for the success of any given product and the organization as a whole, FlowPlay maintains an autonomous yet collaborative workforce. This has resulted in nearly zero employee turnover even amid significant employee growth, with an average of one employee per quarter added to the team for the last five years.
Recognition as an Inc. Top Workplace and Seattle Business Magazine 100 Best Company to Work For in 2019 comes in addition to many other company culture awards FlowPlay has won since 2007. This is the second year FlowPlay has landed on Seattle Business Magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For list. FlowPlay has been named among Entrepreneur's 360 Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America in 2016 and has made the Puget Sound Business Journal's Corporate Philanthropy List three years in a row since 2016. FlowPlay has also been included on Deloitte's Fast 500 list in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
FlowPlay's generous donations to local and national organizations have also supported the company's culture of giving. On top of FlowPlay's commitment to its employees, the company has donated over $400,000 to charities including the American Cancer Institute, Homes for Our Troops, Technology Access Foundation, Girlstart and the Butterfly Foundation.
