We are proud to announce that Dom & Tom has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017. The list is a result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies to be featured in the June 2017 issue of Inc. magazine and as part of a prominent inc.com feature. What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.
“Hands down, the people at Dom & Tom are what make our agency an Inc. Best Workplace. You have to make your employees a priority because they are not just employees; they are part of a team and to build great products you have to have a rock solid team. At Dom & Tom, our team is a family that works hard, respects one another and are truly friends,” said twin Co-Founders, Dom and Tom Tancredi.
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
Although the survey was anonymous, we got a sneak peek at some of the insights and a few quotes to share.
“This is an amazing company. I’ve worked in quite a few places, and I’ve never experienced a company that genuinely invests in the success of its employees, as people as well as professionals.”
“Dom & Tom puts employees first, clients second, and the project third. This allows the company to keep a good client if a project goes wrong, and keep good employees if a relationship with a client goes wrong. With this methodology in mind, D&T offers great medical, dental, vision, 401k, commuter, and unlimited time off benefits. The office atmosphere is also incredibly freeing, and as long as you get your work done (which as part of a team you contribute to setting the team’s goals in a meaningful way) and are productive, you can do what you want, including breaks or leaving early as needed.”
“The company’s motto, “Do Good. Be Good.” resonates with me. I find myself attracted to working on the projects that manifest in some way—apps that positively impact organizational culture, website whose data visualizations empower local organizations to make changes or find resources in their communities, etc. I encourage others to work for the company, especially when similar are in the pipeline.”
One of our favorite insights from the survey was that it was revealed that one of the top words at Dom & Tom was FUN and we couldn’t agree more and we want to share a little of that FUN with everyone.
Thank you to ALL Dom & Tom employees for being a part of a family that is built on mutual respect, honesty, and delivering great results.
