On Sept. 23 local businesses are invited for a tour, free lunch and tips on how to create a thriving culture that propels growth and keeps employees motivated for success
Gilbert, Ariz. - September 19, 2011 - Culture is a company's most valuable asset, according to Clate Mask, co-founder, CEO of Infusionsoft, the leader in sales and marketing automation software for small businesses. The philosophy at Infusionsoft is your competitors can knock off your products, replicate your process and steal your customers, but they can't swoop down and steal your culture. Your culture attracts the right people, ejects the wrong people, and helps guide a company's path to success.
In partnership with BestCompaniesAZ, Infusionsoft will be the first stop in the statewide Most Admired Companies Culture Tour. Infusionsoft's 30,000 square-foot converted warehouse features an indoor football field, basketball court, reading room and much more. During the event, Infusionsoft's co-founder and VP of Customer Service, Scott Martineau, will share workplace culture tips that helped Infusionsoft go from a struggling start-up to a multi-million dollar company and five-time Inc. 500/5000 winner.
"We're proud of what we've created at Infusionsoft and we're excited to have the opportunity to share our culture with the local business community during the Culture Tour," said Martineau. "We laugh all the time here but we also work really hard to deliver the best products and services possible to our customers. It's not out of the ordinary to see employees shooting hoops or scoring touchdowns while strategizing about their plans and goals. We trust our employees to get the job done and always exceed expectations."
This year Infusionsoft and 59 other local businesses took home the title of 'Arizona's Most Admired Companies' by BestCompaniesAZ and Arizona Business Magazine. The statewide program recognizes companies for excellence in four areas: workplace culture, quality leadership, social responsibility and customer opinion. The Most Admired Companies and other local businesses are invited to attend the Culture Tour events. The next Culture Tour will be hosted by Goodmans Interior Structures and McMurry on Nov. 9. Ollie the Trolley will transport attendees from one award-winning company to another, where both Goodmans and McMurry will share tips on "How to Find Your Culture Advantage."
"We've always been impressed with Infusionsoft's commitment to create and sustain a unique workplace culture," said Denise Gredler, owner of BestCompanies AZ. "You can feel the energy and excitement as soon as you walk through the doors. It's contagious and their story of success is inspiring."
