Emerson Group cultivates “a work environment that is productive, energized, celebratory and fun,” says Bill Emerson. Another important tenet of the company’s culture is mutual trust. Employees are encouraged to make their own decisions, with Emerson Group’s core values in mind. This philosophy has paid off, as the company’s current team of 13 employees has a combined tenure of 103 years. Vacation time at Emerson Group increases over an employee’s time with the company, and sick and personal days are unlimited and not tracked. “We are very family-oriented and flexible with staff members who need to work around their personal schedules, run out to attend a school play, child’s doctor’s visit, or anything else they feel is important,” says Emerson.
“Creating an environment that helps both clients and employees reach their personal, professional and financial goals is my number-one priority. When this is accomplished, everything else falls into place.”
