Managers at Envision Consultants, Ltd. are encouraged to reward their staff in many large and small ways, such as celebratory lunches, salary increases and surprise gear such as shirts and hats. “We are careful to recruit new employees who will enhance the team and the overall corporate culture,” says Victoria Malaszecki. “The right fit in a small firm is important, because each staff member is an integral part of the business.” In the summer, Envision dismisses employees at 2 p.m. on Fridays so they can enjoy the season and have more time with friends and family. In the fall, the company hosts a pumpkin carving contest and beer tasting. Employees have the option of wearing shorts to the office on Fridays.
“The rewards [of owning a business] become worth the risks when you see your firm become a team, with each individual contributing to the overall growth and success.”
