CLEVELAND–February 22, 2017–Everstream, a superregional fiber-based network service provider, has been named a 2017 Smart Culture Award recipient by Smart Business Magazine. With this inaugural award, Everstream is recognized for developing a culture that bolsters productivity, enhances job satisfaction and creates a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
“Everstream strives to create a culture of excellence in every single interaction. We take an immense amount of pride in that,” said Brett Lindsey, president and chief executive officer, Everstream. “Our team members’ work ethic and dedication to the business’ common cause and each other are unparalleled and, ultimately, measured through our customers’ continual satisfaction.”
Everstream is one of 28 Northeast Ohio organizations, including the Cleveland Indians, Medical Mutual of Ohio and Skoda Minotti, honored for sustaining a culture that plays a crucial role in the company’s success.
Everstream prides itself on having a culture of integrity, corporate transparency and open communication. The company hosts monthly state-of-the-union team meetings to review multiple facets of the business, including new customers, current projects, financials, and corporate direction.
Team members have a personal stake in this information thanks to Everstream’s shareholder plan.
“By including ownership in the business, our team members understand we are all invested in this together, which creates a loyal, more motivated organization,” Lindsey noted.
Everstream’s monthly, quarterly and annual Kick-A** nominees and winners also are recognized at these team meetings. This unique program allows for any Everstream employee to nominate any fellow associate for going above and beyond—driving a culture of reward, recognition and teamwork. Winners earn a monetary award and a chance at an all-expense-paid trip.
Throughout the year, Everstream team members enjoy access to complimentary lunches, happy hours, biannual team celebrations, employer-paid parking, and the chance to earn a monthly $100 results-based bonus.
Everstream will be recognized on April 6, during the 2017 Smart Culture Conference, which will explore how an organization’s culture can become an asset in driving performance, attracting and retaining talent, and impacting its bottom line.
