“The first step as a CEO is to believe that culture is important. That means believing that it drives results, even if the ROI is hard to measure,” said Chuck Gordon, CEO of SpareFoot. “We’ve built a really strong culture that enables our team to execute well and also helps us recruit and retain awesome people.”

SpareFoot’s mission is to make it easy to keep the things that matter. We do that by providing a marketplace to find and rent storage. Our core values are the behaviors that will enable our success.  They include:

  • Hungry: relentlessly pursue the betterment of our consumers, clients, SpareFoot and yourself
  • Play Well with Others: exemplify team before self, quick to praise and slow to gloat, value and embrace different perspectives
  • Embrace Change: look forward rather than dwelling on the past, always up for a new challenge, take initiative
  • Pass the Champagne Test: be someone people like to work with, don’t take yourself too seriously

“Great company cultures don’t happen on their own. They’re the result of great leadership, and a conscious effort to make everyone on a team feel engaged and important,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “The honorees on our 2017 list are proof that strong cultures make even stronger companies. Entrepreneurs at all levels can draw inspiration from them.”

“Leaders at SpareFoot don’t make a move on the culture front without full input from everyone,” said Chuck Gordon, CEO of SpareFoot. “We regularly share results of our in-house culture surveys at our all-hands meetings so that everyone knows where we’ve been and where we’re going. We treat company culture just like a product.”

Participants were given surveys that were filled out by employees at every level of their organizations, and the honorees were determined and ranked based on their scores. Each company was measured across 10 core dimensions of culture, including: collaboration, innovation, agility, communication, support, wellness, mission and value alignment, work environment, responsibility and performance focus.

To be considered for the ranking, the companies must have had at least 25 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2015 and be headquartered in the U.S. There was no cost to participate in the survey. Individual employee responses were anonymous. To see the complete list, visit entm.ag/TopCultures.
