Return Path Makes The List of “Best Places to Work” in Colorado
Long-time readers of this blog no doubt understand my central philosophy when it comes to management. I believe that people come first. When employees are happy they make our clients happy. Happy clients happily pay for our services, which tends to make our investors happy. When you start with the people, everyone wins.
At Return Path we invest a lot in our people. And we invest a lot in Team People – what we call “Human Resources” – to support those people.
So what a great honor to see all that hard work and investment pay off in the form of a “Best Places to Work” honor! The Society for Human Resources Management named us one of its “Best Places to Work in Colorado” at an awards banquet last Friday. You can read more about how we won this award on the Return Path blog.
Of course a CEO can set the agenda and make certain decisions to support a great work environment. But it is the 150 people who come to Return Path every day who make it the amazing place that it is. I could not be more thankful for each and every one of them – their passion, dedication, teamwork and kindness all come together to create a company that I would want to work for even if I wasn’t the CEO.
