[U.S][Competition] turnstone Looks For Best Young Companies To Work For

Do you think your small business does right by your employees? Have you or are you building a happy workplace that actually helps to retain the best talent and at the same time enhance the effectiveness of your employees such that they contribute positively to your bottom line? If so, you may want to get someone to nominate your company for the inaugural 2013 Best Young Companies to Work For, organized by workplace solutions provider turnstone®.

The Best Young Companies to Work For campaign seeks to highlight companies that demonstrate excellence in areas such as positive work culture, forward-thinking leadership, talent retention, business innovation, community outreach, and workspace planning and design. A panel of judges – Peter Cappelli, Professor of Management, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Katie Johnston, Program Manager, EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Program, Marc Nager, President/CEO, UP Global, Lesa Mitchell, Vice President of Innovation and Networks, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and Kevin Kuske, General Manager and Chief Anthropologist, turnstone – will select nominated companies that best show a strong commitment to creating a positive work environment and experience for workers. 

“Young companies that are truly succeeding recognize the significance of workplace culture in addition to bottom line results. They understand how to foster collaboration, attract and retain top talent and enhance wellbeing,” says Kevin Kuske, general manager and chief anthropologist for turnstone. “The Best Young Companies to Work For campaign is designed to find those companies that are not only getting the job done, but also stand out in their efforts to create a work environment that helps amplify the performance of its people.”

turnstone is accepting nominations through August 23, 2013 at To be considered, nominated companies must be no more than 10 years old and employ no more than 100 people. Again, companies are not eligible to nominate themselves, so quick, time to be really nice to some people.
