Q: What was the funniest recognition you’ve ever received?
A: We have a lot of young employees (60% in their 20’s), and when I announced we had won Happiest Place to Work for a second year in a row, a young employee who has only had one other job, looked at me with a very funny face and said, “What is it like to work at other places? Is it really that bad?” Almost like she didn’t think we deserved it! Everyone in the company laughed for several minutes, especially the more experienced folks because she didn’t really understand how different our environment is compared to other work environments.
Q: What was the happiest moment at work?
A: I’m pretty happy all the time, but last summer we doubled the size of our company and grew revenue from several hundred thousand a month to several million all in 100 days! It was a pretty amazing summer! That made me everyone very happy!
Q: What kind of fun activities does your company participate in?
A: For the two months leading up to the Force Awakens premiere, we watched the previous Star Wars movies complete with Popcorn machine, movie candy, and puppies! Then we rented out an iPic theater to watch Force Awakens on the opening weekend together.
We regularly sponsor Seattle Seahawk player charity events, so we get to do stuff like bowl with Earl Thomas or play softball with Richard Sherman.
We also go out together and help the community on the Union Gospel Mission Search and Rescue vans where we hand our food and supplies to the homeless in Seattle.
Q: What is the one thing that every company can do to make their employees happier?
A: Truly value their opinions and create.
Q: If you could describe your work culture in three words, what would they be?
A: Honest. Caring. Motivating.
