“Work-to-live” mantra propels AppNeta to Inc.’s Best Workplaces 2019
by Matt Stevens Matt Stevens on

Fostering a happy and effective work culture isn’t about following fads. In the 8-plus years since AppNeta was founded, tech companies like ours have been known to deploy lots of gimmicks to attract the best talent, which may be a flashy-enough sell to get interested workers through the door, but not enough to build a team for the long haul.

That’s not to say we don’t keep our beer fridge stocked, mind you, or encourage an impromptu game of darts to blow off steam throughout the day. But what sets AppNeta apart is our ability to execute on the mantra of “work to live,” and not the other way around.

What does that look like in action?

Well, for starters, the benefits most companies offer force employees to make hard choices. Whether those choices are between work, family or a patchwork of other priorities, that kind of approach fails all parties involved; the family suffers, the employee suffers, and the company suffers too. At the end of the day, this presents a false choice that we don’t want any of our employees to have to make.

That’s why we always go the extra mile to support our employees and their families. Whether it’s supporting flexible schedules or our world-class maternity, paternity, adoption, and extended personal or family wellness leave benefits, we believe that employees are more motivated and dedicated to a company that supports them holistically.

At the center of AppNeta’s culture are our three core values — transparency, performance, and trust.

We embody transparency by actively promoting transparent communication with each other about all of our initiatives, how they drive the business, and how we’re executing against our plans. When it comes to performance, we understand that our individual performance maps to our team performance, which ultimately maps to the company's overall success.

Tying it all together, we trust each other to perform our jobs with integrity, quality, and a sense of urgency. That’s how we give 100 percent every day to our work, to our customers, and to each other.

All that said, we’re honored to see our placement in Inc.’s annual Best Workplaces ranking. We do everything we can to foster a work culture that makes each individual want to engage for the long haul. As a result, every team member feels an individual sense of pride whenever AppNeta succeeds, and we’ll all surely be toasting to this latest feather in our cap!
