WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Inc. Magazine named NGP VAN as one of its inaugural “50 Best Workplaces”, the first such measurement of American companies with up to 500 employees that deploy state-of-the-art techniques to keep their staff happy and productive.
"A creator of organizing and fundraising technology for progressive political campaigns, NGP VAN lays on four-day all-staff retreats to the Caribbean every two years, and the CEO accepts employee feedback during paintball outings."-Inc. Magazine
NGP VAN leads the way on unusually generous workplace policies, including 100% premium-paid health, dental and short-term disability, up to 12 weeks of fully paid parental leave (for all new parents), a minimum wage of at least $15/hour (even for interns), and much more.
“We’re honored to be named by Inc. as one of the nation’s “50 Best Workplaces”, says Stu Trevelyan, CEO of NGP VAN. “We work hard to attract employees who believe in our mission, and once we’ve found them we want to make sure they stick around and help us work to make the world a better place. I personally want to work at a company that lives the progressive values our Democratic clients fight for, and that means treating co-workers with respect and fostering a family-friendly atmosphere.”
Working with employee engagement and culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Nebraska, Inc.’s list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and keeping the best talent.
“We hear it over and over again from the fast-growing businesses we cover: The biggest challenge that any business owner faces is finding and keeping the best people. That’s why building a workplace culture that allows your staff to grow with your company is absolutely crucial,” explains Inc.’s President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “Recipients of the Inc. Best Workplaces Awards have done so in spades. They should be celebrated and emulated.”
