Skillable recognized by Great Place to Work® on Certification Nation Day, a National Celebration of Outstanding Workplaces
New Port Richey, Fla. – May 17, 2022 – Skillable is proud to celebrate Certification Nation Day on May 17, along with the community of Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies across the country. Great Place to Work® has designated May 17, 2022, as Certification Nation Day to salute and recognize the companies working to create great places to work for all.
The Great Place to Work Certification™ is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences.
“Providing our employees with extensive opportunities to thrive and do good work is a core priority for the company and we have a strategic focus on people and culture initiatives to foster those experiences,” says Corey Hynes, Chief Executive Officer of Skillable. “Having those intentions validated by our team members during the nomination process was fantastic to see and I’m extremely happy to provide my team a certified ‘Great Place to Work’.”
A dedicated focus on company culture is clear at Skillable. From the new employee onboarding program to monthly socials, co-work opportunities, special recognition moments, wellness programs, excellent benefits and a people and culture team frequently checking in with twice a month pulse surveys, it’s clear that positive team culture is a priority.
“Certified companies put employees first,” says Michael C. Bush, Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work. “Thriving employees increase revenue, profit and provide market-leading customer experiences. I hope that Certification Nation Day can inspire other executives to create and sustain employee-first cultures.”
“We say we are a warm and friendly place, but how the employees feel is what matters most,” says Heidi Gonzales, Employee Experience Manager for Skillable. “Looking at the statistics, our employee experience scores are 30 and 40% higher than that of a typical U.S.-based company and that speaks to the heart of our company and people.”
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition for Great Place to Work. “It takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience.”
“Skillable feels more like a community than a company. It’s the most positive work environment I’ve ever experienced,” continues Heidi. “There are so many intelligent and talented people here, yet it never feels intimidating. Despite being fully remote, our team is very close. We work hard and play hard. We have a lot of fun both in and outside of work. We’re lucky to have great compensation and benefits, but what makes it special is the way our team supports each other and feels cared for by the company. It’s fun to get surprises like gift boxes and baked goods sent to our homes. The little things mean a lot!”
