Geneva Global was selected as one of SmartCEO’s Philadelphia 2017 Corporate Culture Awards winners for its commitment to cultivating a creative, collaborative, and successful workplace. SmartCEO, a business community aimed at serving C-Level executives, used an independent committee to review and select a final list of 25 winners.
Corporate Culture Award winners are recognized as champions for developing positive, productive cultures. Geneva Global’s commitment to creating this type of work environment is reflected in its four core values: big impact, creative, collaboration, and fun.
Some of the highlights that led to Geneva Global’s selection include:
- A mission of creating positive social impact that naturally seeps into the fabric of its culture.
- A comprehensive employee benefits package, including up to 100% of medical premiums covered by the company, a 401(k) savings plan with a 3% match, and maternity and paternity leave.
- A commitment to flexibility, reflected in summer hour schedules and work-from-home days.
- An open office environment that offers gathering spaces to foster creativity and collaboration, areas for undisturbed thinking time, and a multipurpose room where staff enjoys lunch together every day.
Geneva Global believes that culture is a company’s greatest asset, driving performance and growth. Because of this commitment to creating a positive work environment, the organization had less than 10% turnover last year and has grown its client base by 75% over the last three years. This has led Inc. magazine to name Geneva Global to its fastest-growing privately-held companies—twice.
“As President Harry S. Truman said, ‘It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit,’” says Geneva Global CEO Doug Balfour. “We try to work in a ‘no politics and full-humility’ zone in the service of positively transforming as many lives as possible. I believe that and the individual passion of our staff to both mission and excellence makes our culture special.”
Geneva Global and the other Corporate Culture Award winners will be recognized at a ceremony on December 7, 2017 at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue.
