Best Places to Work, Triangle Business Journal

Our biggest success of the year? Being named one of the Best Places to Work for the second time (first, in 2019; then again in 2020).

Especially during this period of constant change, we face challenges by balancing productivity with compassion. To say we’re thrilled about being named a best place to work is an understatement. We’re beyond grateful to be recognized for our commitment to happy and healthy employees for a second year in a row.

This recognition is based on surveys to our local team members.

We also won Best Places to Work in our Charlotte office!
