Allied Telecom Group, LLC
The culture at Allied Telecom Group, LLC is focused on the client experience, and that’s why even fellow employees are treated as clients, says Ken Williams. By adopting this mentality, Allied has created an ecosystem of support across departments and teams. For example, the company has a recognition program that allows employees to give each other virtual merit badges. Employees’ hard work is recognized in other ways too, such as through a range of perks that include flexible work hours and remote-work options. An on-site gym helps employees focus on health, and Allied’s Give Back program allows them to use four paid hours each month for volunteer activities.
“Allied hosts several potluck lunches each year, at which employees can catch up and compete for cooking and baking prizes.”
