If you love your job, more than just your paycheck contributes to your satisfaction.
That's according to a new poll conducted for Columbus CEO Magazine.
Our sister publication took a look at the top workplaces in Columbus and why people like to work there.
Now, the winner of the Top Medium Organization in 2014 goes to HMB.
For 20 years, HMB has provided support and custom internet technology to businesses.
Co-founder Tom Harris, says the business is more than bits and bytes. "Our product is us."
He says human interaction is vital to make this company work, not only for clients, but also for staff.
"They get that we're all in this together. When we have a project and they see that we're all pitching in, we're all contributing, at the end of the day, people feel good about that,” says Harris
He says there's a lot of give and take, and managers make a point of asking workers to suggest improvements. "We definitely listen to what our employees have to say. And then we make changes.”
Employee John Mamula says he appreciates that the company offers continuing education to keep skills sharp. "We know we can count on our other teammates at HMB to make our project successful.”
And co-worker Angie Buccilli also likes company outings that promote teamwork through fun. "We do a lot as a company outside of working hours that really brings everyone together. Laughing outside of their professional, everyday jobs.”
