In case you haven’t heard already, my company – Guidance – was recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of L.A.’s best places to work! Here’s the full story…
MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (Aug. 26, 2008) – Guidance, which helps online retailers achieve market domination by creating captivating and engaging online shopping experiences, today announced that it has been named one of the best places to work in Los Angeles. The rankings were published in the Aug. 25 edition of the Los Angeles Business Journal.
Guidance was ranked No. 11 out of 50 finalists in the Medium-Sized Companies category, which includes businesses with 25 to 249 employees. Companies were evaluated based on workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, and according to a survey that measured the employee experience.
The Los Angeles Business Journal’s Best Places to Work survey and awards program is a county-wide effort designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Los Angeles.
“We take this honor very seriously, because we strive to be a different kind of place to work,” said Jason Meugniot, Guidance owner and CEO. “We give people the opportunity to do what excites them – to use cool and relevant technology and to see projects through to completion. Our company thrives when our team members are free to push boundaries, experience the thrill of accomplishment and receive recognition for their contributions. We place a high priority on creating balance between personal life and career, and that goes a long way toward making Guidance a great place to work.”
Meugniot and Guidance CTO Jon Provisor purchased the company from its original founders earlier this year. Prior to that, Meugniot was responsible for day-to-day operations as president and CEO.
