Lucid Agency Named a 2017 Top Company
An employee survey and judges panel named Lucid Agency one of the 100 Best Companies to work for in Arizona!
It was a happy honor to be named to the AZcentral.com’s “Top Companies to Work for in Arizona – 2017” list and it was a really fun experience to meet lots of other great companies at the awards breakfast on June 29th at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. All the companies gathered together had a great reason to celebrate so the presentation and breakfast was energetic and positive—just like all the great companies who made the list.
An unexpected bonus of attending the awards breakfast was Ann Meyers Drysdale, VP of the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury, who was a really inspiring keynote speaker. Her message about failure being the opportunity to try something new is one that we all need to hear, especially companies who are motivated to try new ways to succeed and implement new programs for their employees. At Lucid Agency, we embrace innovation but know that if a new idea doesn’t work out, it isn’t the end of the world, we simply need to take a step back to assess the situation, learn from it, and get ready to try something else. Not every challenge can result in a slam dunk (pun intended) but Ann’s impressive career and achievements are a testament to not allowing disappointment derail your mission or prevent you from reaching your goals.
If you haven’t heard of the Top Companies program, (it’s in its fifth year), check out the requirements and find out what it takes to make the cut. There is some work to the application and introducing the employee survey, but it is a streamlined process with plenty of reminders. Overall, it is a useful tool to take the pulse of your company, figure out what you are doing that resonates with your team, and look for new ways to improve. It’s a great snapshot of how happy your work family is, especially since feedback is anonymous so no one needs to lie about how lovely your weekly indoor tofu-roasting makes the kitchen smell. (Just kidding, that doesn’t happen at Lucid or we probably wouldn’t have made the list).
Thank you to AZCentral and Best Companies for this energizing awards program and thank you to the Lucid Agency team for your feedback and willingness to try new things. Cheers!
