Blvd Suites Named Second Best Place to Work
in 2017 by the Denver Business Journal
The Best Places to Work recognizes outstanding culture and workplace environments by anonymously surveying employees. Responses are measured using 10 key engagement categories focusing on items including team effectiveness, trust in team leaders, feeling valued, leadership effectiveness, and compensation and benefits.
“We have won a few awards over the years, but this is the one I am most proud of. It is humbling that the employees of Blvd Suites feel passionately enough about the workplace environment we have created to nominate the company for this award,” says Founding Partner Zac Cihak.
Blvd Suites earned the #2 ranking for its pro-employee culture and passion toward customers. The Denver Business Journal specifically highlighted how team members are empowered to make decisions, and the company’s manifesto of core philosophies that promote “blue skies” thinking, creating unsurpassed guest experiences, and providing people a healthy work/life balance. In addition, the company was celebrated for its tradition of giving cards and gift cards in recognition of team member birthdays and those of their significant others and children, and also for work anniversaries and wedding anniversaries.
One of the most significant team member benefits cited however was how upon reaching 10 years of service, team members receive $1,000 and a paid 30-day sabbatical over and above their regular vacation time.
“This is super exciting and I am from the bottom of my heart both proud of and humbled by our team,” says Founding Partner Jeff Hurley. “This recognition is really all about our team though. They’re the ones who are making us great.”
