Company Recognized for Exemplary People Practices and Outstanding Workplace Culture
Washington, DC, May 25, 2011: TCG, a leading government technology strategy and IT advisor, has been recognized by Inc. Magazine and Winning Workplaces as one of its Top Small Company Workplaces for 2011. The Top Small Company Workplaces awards—an annual contest that recognizes the nation’s best small and mid‐sized company work environments—was announced today in Inc.’s June issue. The magazine features the contest’s 50 winners, which represent a diverse array of organizations such as TCG, Cal‐Tex Protective Coatings, equipment supplier Fitness Anywhere, and audio firm Skullcandy.
Every year since 2003, Winning Workplaces, an Evanston, IL‐based nonprofit organization, has recognized those firms that attribute much of their business success to their commitment to exemplary people practices and outstanding workplace cultures.
“TCG’s workplace culture—which is built around telecommuting and flexible work arrangements—is an integral part of our DNA. It has helped us hire the best people, who, in turn, are driving our success,” said TCG president, Dan Turner. “We are delighted to have received national recognition for the way we do business and treat our employees.”
Winning Workplaces and Inc. received nearly 350 applications for the contest. A national panel of experts in leadership and small to mid‐sized business judged the finalists. Selections were based on specific metrics and qualitative assessments of the finalists’ success in creating the kind of workplaces that engage employees and deliver bottom‐line results.
“This year’s winning firms distinguish themselves in so many ways,” asserts Ken Lehman, chairman of Winning Workplaces. “They are steadily growing their revenues, often outperforming their industries; have identified niches where they add unmatched value; and are guided by strong missions and values. And, they make no secret of the fact that a key driver behind their success is their engaged and committed workforces.”
“These firms represent some of the finest privately held companies in the world,” states Bob LaPointe, president of Inc. “Their stories, appearing in the June issue of Inc., clearly demonstrate that taking an innovative approach to creating the right culture—one in which human capital is embedded in a company’s value proposition—can create real competitive leadership. Each of these Top Small Company Workplaces offers an environment in which people flourish and, as a result, profit follows.”
