“We have mastered the ability to balance the standards of a large corporate company, while maintaining our small business, family-style culture,” says Ron Bergamini. To do this, The Action Environmental Group (TAEG) has insisted on remaining transparent, even with 800 employees across 15 locations. That’s why TAEG holds bi-weekly huddles in person and via Skype, invites employees to town hall meetings and employs an intranet to keep the team connected. TAEG also holds Lunch Box Briefings to encourage a serial-learner mentality. Topics range from proper use of LinkedIn to using aromatherapy to lower blood pressure. In addition, the company is dedicated to giving back by working with volunteer organizations like Encore Community Service, which brings food to homebound seniors.
“The key to building a great company culture is transparency — letting your employees know what is going on within the company so everyone feels valued and a part of the team.”
