In this season of gratitude, we are grateful to have been recognized in Small Business Monthly’s November 2019 Issue as a 2019 Five-Star Workplace.
November is a time to reflect in gratitude. The team at Standing has many reasons to be grateful – for one, the exciting opportunities to serve our clients, both new and existing! We are also excited that Small Business Monthly recently recognized Standing Partnership as a 2019 Five-Star Workplace in its November 2019 issue. This list encompasses organizations in St. Louis that have a distinguishable culture that promotes personal and organizational growth.
We’re honored to be recognized for our culture, because when it comes down to it, that’s what really defines “us.” Standing’s mission is to drive growth for our clients and our team. Our culture is shaped by our core values, which include ambition, integrity, collaboration and innovation. In practice, this means that our team has opportunities to develop new skillsets, deepen expertise across industries, and demonstrate leadership in the company and in the community. In an evolving industry, we need to constantly learn and be nimble in order to stay competitive. We believe that the best ideas originate from bringing multiple perspectives together whether that is done internally or externally. At our core, we are motivated to deliver impactful results for our clients, our team and our community.
The Small Business Monthly award also recognizes employee benefits that make a company a great place to work. For a small business, Standing Partnership makes significant investments to allow each team member to perform at their best: from our versatile office space that stimulates collaboration, to flexibility for working remotely, to our popular sabbatical leave. That’s why so many of us stick around for a long time (an average retention of six years), which is not typical for our fast-paced, demanding industry.
As a company in the service industry, we are used to focusing more on our clients’ successes than our own. Yet, as we wrap up a successful year, we are grateful for each other and are proud to see our culture recognized in the St. Louis business community. For additional details about the award, read here.
