Inc. Magazine Names G5 one of America’s Top Small Company Workplaces

Bend-based Software Firm Tops the List with Outstanding Work Environment

G5, the leading provider of vertical-specific Local Marketing Solutions for mid-market companies, was named one of hte 50 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces by Inc. magazine and Winning Workplaces in Inc.’s June issue.  The annual contest recognizes the nation’s best company work environments among businesses with fewer than 500 full-time employees. 

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.  G5’s unique workplace culture includes a dog-friendly office environment, a company-wide Autonomy Day, flexible summer hours and a robust health and wellness program, among other benefits. 

Award Methodoly

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 bottomline 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.”

“We’re honored to have made Inc.’s list of Top Small Company Workplaces,” said G5 CEO Dan Hobin.  “We’re committed to helping our employees thrive, because they ultimately enable our business to thrive.  Our corporate culture is a critical component of our success.”
