Walker Sands Named as Honoree for Second Annual Inc. Best Workplaces List
We’re a big fan of lists at Walker Sands. To-do lists, listicles, media lists – we love them all. But our favorite kind of list is one that celebrates our company culture, which is why we’re honored to rank among other outstanding companies on this year’s Inc. Magazine Best Workplaces list!
Inc. selected just over 200 companies from the thousands that applied. Before consideration for this list, our employees were asked to describe why Walker Sands is such a great place to work. Beer fridges and in-office arcades weren’t the answers. Instead of vanity attractions, we cultivate our company culture around an inclusive and supportive atmosphere in the hopes of making all our employees feel valued and engaged. Based on the survey results, it looks like the approach is working!
Company culture is an integral part of what makes Walker Sands Walker Sands. We pride ourselves on having a workplace that fosters community, and we are always looking for ways to further our company pillars of learn, support and do. We’ve created employee interest groups called Kaizens, Japanese for continuous improvement, that allow employees to share common interests and improve the agency through volunteering, diversity, celebrations and more. We also promote strong company culture through highly anticipated annual events like the Cubs’ game and city-wide scavenger hunt.
We want our employees to take pride in the work that they do and the company they do it for, and that all starts with a constant commitment to creating an agency worth writing home about. And this will never change, no matter how big we grow or where the next adventure takes us.
We couldn’t have earned this recognition without our supportive teams, and the thoughtfulness of each employee never ceases to amaze us. Our team’s abilities to go above and beyond for not only our clients, but for each other, is a testament to why we consistently earn recognition from publications like Inc.
