Creating a positive and exciting work environment starts with company culture. Russ Carroll and Rick Wilson (our CEO and President respectively) take great pride in creating a sense of community amongst all employees at Miva and specifically set out to build a company they’d personally want to work at.
“I was an employee of other people for the first 15 years of my career, so I had a keen sense of the type of place I wanted to work as an employee.” said Rick Wilson
The feeling that we are all in this together is what makes our employees feel appreciated, as they should. Both Wilson and Carroll agree that creating a happy, creative and fun work environment generates positive moral and ultimately happy employees, which in turn provides happy clients and a successful business.
“If our employees aren’t happy then what are we doing here? Our overall goal is to be a successful ecommerce business but to get there we must accomplish the greater goal of taking care of our Miva family. We feel we have done this successfully and making this list validates that.” said Russ Carroll.
When our team was asked to answer questions provided by the UT to select the winners, Jen Hardman, HR Manager at Miva, knew the response would be “nothing but positive and a great reflection on just how well we are doing internally here at Miva.”
From entry level to senior management, the employees were asked questions like, “What excites you about the direction that Miva is taking? What impresses you most about the values and ethics of Miva?” and “What do you find most meaningful about working at Miva?”
The news has been shared internally and of course our team is very proud. Seeing our name on the list is rewarding and motivating all at once. We are eagerly anticipating November 6th, 2014 when the UT will announce the “Top Awards” to a select few of us on the Top Workplaces in San Diego List.
To our hardworking employees – Thank you for the honors and your dedication to Miva, Inc. You are a valued member of the Miva family and we would not have made it this far without you.
