SAN DIEGO, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Raken, the leading daily reporting app and field management tool for the construction industry, has been selected by the San Diego Business Journal as one of 2018's Best Places to Work.
The award is given to companies whose benefits, policies and practices are considered among the best in the city. Recipients were recognized Sept. 20 during a ceremony at The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter.
The San Diego Business Journal honored Raken CEO and founder Kyle Slager in June as 2018's Most Admired CEO for a small, privately held company.
"To be recognized as one of the best places to work in San Diego is a huge honor," Slager said. "At Raken, our employees' well-being is a top priority. Success is a team effort, from the newest employee to the CEO. We're all working together toward a common goal. When you take care of employees, you're taking care of your company at the same time."
Employee benefits at Raken include an amphitheater, a meditation room and a complimentary onsite gym with daily yoga and fitness classes. The office's location along the coast of North County San Diego provides opportunities for fun as well, as the company provides bikes for employees to take to the beach for a ride.
"Our staff is amazing and incredibly hard working," said Sergey Sundukovskiy, CTO and co-founder of Raken. "Offering them benefits or opportunities to step away from a project or task doesn't diminish that. Studies have shown there is a correlation between employee happiness and a better job performance. We want our staff to enjoy their time at the office and be fulfilled not only as Raken employees but as individuals.
"One of the key reasons for Raken's success is our unique culture. We certainly go far beyond what would be considered 'table stakes' culture. We credit Raken's culture as one of the most important ingredients in becoming one of San Diego's Best Places to Work."
Since its inception in 2013, Raken has grown to serve more than 4,000 clients in all 50 states and 89 countries. As the company continues to grow, Slager says its values will not change.
"Whatever success comes our way, we're going to celebrate it as a team. Each win is one that every person at Raken contributed to, and we aren't going to forget that."
