Triangle Business Journal named WorkSmart one of the region’s top 50 Best Places to Work in 2020. Last year was our first time receiving this prestigious award, and it’s an honor to be recognized again for a culture where employees can thrive, personally and professionally.
**In October, we received another tremendous honor! Based on the feedback from our team in Charlotte, the Charlotte Business Journal recognized WorkSmart as a Best Place to Work.
Every year, the Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) recognizes the area’s leading employers that foster a meaningful and enjoyable workplace. Being awarded this honor, especially amidst a challenging time for many small businesses, is incredible. We’re proud to have a work environment that our team values.
Best Places to Work while working from home
The WorkSmart team strives to make our workplace fun, productive, and supportive even when we aren’t in the same office. During these “new normal” times, we continue to focus on balancing productivity with compassion. And to help promote wellbeing, we’ve given our team a PTO gift to use for an extended weekend to encourage breaks.
We’ve also continued to create opportunities for people to connect personally with regular virtual happy hours, company-paid e-lunch dates, team-generated music playlists, a collaborative cookbook, and even a virtual family campfire (smores kit + a match and tea light for roasting). Because, sometimes, the team ‘just wanna have fun’.
Core values shared by all
Whether it’s for our team or our clients, we make ‘the experience’ a priority by building a team of people who believe in our core values – hunger for growth, personal connections, and doing the right thing. Open communication is the key to building trust with our team and our clients. Giving our team the voice to influence how they work has led us to continue to grow.
