Corporate culture contributes meaningfully to financial results, and many people do not give this fact enough attention. Let’s take a moment and go back in time to 2007. While the rest of the world was rejoicing over the release of the very first iPhone, we at OneDigital had other reasons to celebrate. INC Magazine had just launched its prestigious list of the 5000 fastest growing companies in America and we were recognized as a member of that very first group.
Fast-forward to today, and we’ve done it again! For the 11th year in a row, we’ve made the INC Magazine list of the 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America, and I couldn’t be more excited to share the news.
This type of accomplishment doesn’t just occur by chance. To even be considered for this sort of recognition, you have to have three consecutive years of year-over-year financial growth. Being able to sustain that level of success is truly remarkable. So much so, that we’re among an elite group of only 25 companies (out of 5000!!) honored with this recognition since the award’s inception. THAT'S REALLY AMAZING!
Back to corporate culture and financial results – stats show that a company’s culture has a direct impact on employee turnover, which affects productivity and therefore success. Companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20 percent, earn 1.2 to 1.7 percent more than their peer firms, and are 2.1 percent above industry benchmarks. Happy workers are also more likely to solve difficult problems faster. It serves as a reminder to everyone on our team that we are creating an impact in everything we do. Our clients feel it through daily interactions, our partners experience it when they come on board and our employees see it throughout their offices.
The unique thing about our growth is that it’s never been based solely on numbers. Our growth and success has always been driven by our culture. We’re constantly striving to uphold an exceptional company experience where everyone is invested and everyone wins. It’s that level of commitment that makes OneDigital a great place to work.
