After only four years in business, Zurixx receives the highly coveted Great Place to Work status as voted by its happy, engaged workers.
Salt Lake City, UT (July 2016) – Employees at many companies spend the majority of their workdays looking forward to just one thing: being able to leave. So when a company places importance on taking care of its employees, encouraging a fun workplace, promoting a good work-life balance and giving them the opportunity to give back, workers take notice. Salt Lake City’s Zurixx, a leading financial education company, is named a “Great Place to Work” by 99% of its employees, based on an in-depth survey provided by the Great Place to Work® analytical workplace authority.
“We take a lot of pride in taking care of our staff,” states Zurixx president, Jeff Spangler. “Of course we’re all here to do our jobs, but we do things a bit differently and we make coming to work as fun as possible. We’ve got a gaming area in our team lounge, spa benefits and incredible company events, to name just a few of the perks. On the more serious side, we focus a lot on personal growth, giving back to the community and celebrating achievements.” Spangler adds. “We also go to great lengths to find the best people — we work out quickly what they’re best at and then give them the support and encouragement to succeed, and I think people really appreciate that.”
The Great Place to Work study indicated that 100% of employees surveyed said, “When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride,” and that “this is a fun place to work.” Great Communication and Great Bosses both received 97% ratings, and Great Atmosphere received 99%.
“It means a lot to us to hear our staff are so happy,” comments James Carlson, CEO. “We like doing things a bit out of the ordinary at Zurixx — our culture of ‘work hard, play hard’ is something we all adhere to and it’s great that our team appreciate it.” Carlson adds. “We’re a four-year-old company that’s already one of Utah’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies, and we’re also being nominated as one of the Fortune 500 Fastest-Growing Companies in America – and that’s only possible because of the great team we have and their dedication to continually making us the best.”
Zurixx also has a branch in Dorado, Puerto Rico, run by President, Cris Cannon. “This recognition of Zurixx being a great place to work is a big deal for us. Honestly, we’re thrilled, because this isn’t an outside company who’s ‘giving’ us this award — it’s direct from our own team. As an owner of the company, there’s nothing more rewarding than knowing your team is happy in their work and that you’re doing a good job of taking care of them. This award is an honor, and one that we hope we’ll keep receiving for many years to come.”
Zurixx is best known for its development of comprehensive educational training, materials and coaching programs for the financial services industry. This private company founded in 2012 has 107 employees who appreciate its many perks and benefits, including free breakfast, lunch and snacks, flexible work hours and telecommute options, paid sick leave, generous health insurance and diversity policy (including benefits to same-sex couples such as parental leave for non-birth parents). In addition to taking pride in caring for its employees, Zurixx has a tradition of giving back in the community as well, donating over $350k to local charities in the past year through annual donations and volunteer efforts by its employees. In addition to the medical, dental and vision benefits, annual bonuses and paid time off, employees cite the Zurixx annual black-tie Recognition Gala, the WinterFest and SummerFest weekend retreats, and the full amenities in the modern new office as a few of the many reasons they love their company.
