Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.
In Atlanta, companies turned out for the June 30 awards ceremony and networking event at the Marriott Northwest Galleria. The gathering culminated with the Best of the Best Small Business Award and the Best of the Best Overall Business Award. Here are their stories:
Atlanta’s Small Business Best of the Best: Adcap Network Systems
It’s a pretty interesting thing for a company devoted to setting up Cisco networks in large organizations like hospitals and universities to say that its main product is its people.
But that’s the party line at Adcap Network Systems, followed up by a second motto, “A place where you get treated like an adult but have fun like a kid.”
The annual Christmas party features a casino night. Employees are invited to play volleyball at summer barbecues, families welcome. Top performers last year were whisked away to Mexico, and their spouses were invited along. Families are included in day-long outings at Lake Lanier, and employees enjoy “West Coast benefits” like free snacks, drinks, catered lunches, quarterly raises and four hours every month to pursue community engagement, says Bradford Wilkins, vice president, talent management and HR services.
The theory behind the boatload of fun available to Adcap’s dedicated staff, most of whom only began to arrive in 2008, is that if you want high accountability, you have to take care of your people, Wilkins says. “It’s very much like a family. My fiancé once said that was ‘cheesy,’ but one year as we were walking out of the Christmas party, she turned to me and said, ‘That is a big old family.’”
In fact, Adcap was founded by a husband-wife team who dreamed they could create a place where they liked to go to work and where other people might, too. Rolf and Christine Versluis, with Christine’s brother Matt Waring, created Adcap in 2002, bringing Rolf’s experience working for Cisco, Christine’s experience in sales and marketing and Matt’s finance expertise.
Parents to four kids, Rolf and Christine started the company with no outside funding, using only personal credit cards to build “a great place to work and support their families,” Wilkins says. “They never had any audacious goals.”
Today, Adcap employs 75 people, all but three of whom work in Georgia. Revenues in 2014 were $52 million, more than double the $24 million pulled in the year prior. Adcap offers the only entry level Cisco engineer program in the country, and promotes company leadership entirely from within existing ranks.
“Our people is our number one asset here,” Wilkins insists. He was hired in 2013 to find ways to evaluate talent beyond the traditional “what was your major and where did you go to school” criteria. “We look at what someone can do versus what have they done,” Wilkins explains. “That opens up a whole wide range of people who wouldn’t typically get an interview at a technology company but instead have become top performers.”
While the company’s name came from Rolf’s experience in the armed forces – he’s a Naval Academy graduate and former nuclear submarine officer – perhaps it was foreshadowing for the way the company would set the benchmark higher than anyone could have anticipated. The MARK-48, also known as the MK48 or ADCAP, is an advanced capabilities torpedo created by the American military in the 1960s to match advances in Soviet submarine technology. The weapon was created to sink deep-diving nuclear-powered submarines as well as high-performance surface ships.
It’s been in operation since 1972 as a main weapon of U.S. Navy submarines. Continual impressive upgrades to the weapon over the years have maintained its status as a prime armament for the Navy; it is used on Canadian, Australian and Dutch submarines, too.
Since Adcap Network Systems has been honored as one of Atlanta’s fastest-growing companies, the metaphor set by its namesake is impressive. ADCAP torpedoes can be guided from the submarine base, but they can also use their own sensors to fulfill their mission.
“If you asked [the founders] about being a $50 million company 13 years later, they would say it wasn’t their goal,” Wilkins says. “It was to be as good as they can possibly be.”
Atlanta Overall Best of the Best: T-Mobile USA
When diversity, family time and professional development are three of the top priorities of the company, it’s no wonder that T-Mobile employees are pretty happy to keep working at this publicly-traded company that was the first to do away with annual service contracts for its customers.
The fact that T-Mobile is proud to operate outside the box for customers mirrors the way it cares for its employees in an out-of-the-box way. “We’re in the changing-the-phone-company business,” says Monique McKenzie, senior communications manager. And as such, “our people are the lifeblood of T-Mobile and represent everything it means to be the Un-carrier.”
How do they do it?
With regard to diversity, “our philosophy is that employees with diverse ideas and backgrounds bring innovations that serve our customers, communities and teams,” McKenzie says. It’s one thing to say it and another to make it happen. T-Mobile does it through Diversity & Inclusion Networks, also known as Employee Network Groups.
Every group has a specific focus – access for disabilities, military honor and support, multicultural, multigenerational, pride and allies, women’s leadership are but a few. The groups sponsor events internally at the company and externally in the greater community throughout the year.
“We work in a culture that celebrates the differences that each individual brings to the team,” McKenzie notes. That’s one reason the company has received nods for Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights Campaign and was ranked number 71 on the list of the top 100 military friendly employers.
There is also a recognition that you’re not just an employee; you’re a person with a full life outside of the workplace and that should not suffer because of demands from your work.
T-Mobile provides paid parental leave for new parents, including adoptive parents, surrogates and domestic partners. Plus, Paid Time Off (PTO) is one lump category, thanks to input from employees. T-Mobile offers employees sick and vacation paid days off plus eight paid holidays every year, all to be used at the employee’s leisure, no questions asked.
Every six months, T-Mobile offers employees the opportunity to choose a new schedule, one that suits their personal lives. Plus, employees can flex their hours within an established framework, often relying on a Facebook page to connect employees in cases of urgent schedule changes. Flexibility is a key to pretty much everything – as well as the reason behind the company’s contract-less customer service and its devotion to making life livable for the people at the brand’s frontlines.
The company recognizes that career development is essential and helps employees advance. McKenzie says you can be hired in at entry level and work your way up into a variety of positions to truly build a career at T-Mobile.
“Employees with ambitions to become people managers have the option of taking leadership training,” McKenzie says. “Those who want to increase their skills as individual contributors are encouraged to take in-house training to boost their competency. All employees have the option of pursuing outside classes that relate to current or future jobs at T-Mobile with the help of the Education Reimbursement Program,” where the company covers between $2,500-$5,250 in tuition every year per person who seeks further education.
But even more than an opportunity to advance one’s own education, there has to be a stake in the work to keep people engaged. T-Mobile does this in so many ways, McKenzie says, involving employees in product launches and new product release parties, making the workplace a fun place to be with picnics, game rooms and other shared activities, and awards, rewards and other forms of recognition for great service.
Ultimately, the key word for T-Mobile’s focus on what it means to be the Best of Best is its focus on the frontline. That frontline refers to how customers are cared for as well as how employees are nurtured and encouraged. Everything happens on the frontline, like a domino effect, amounting to a company-wide success that just can’t be faked.
For a company this big, the success is real. And impactful. In 2014, T-Mobile employees devoted 8,600 volunteer hours to community improvement, contributed more than $90,000 from employees to help children’s afterschool programs, served more than 7,300 children across the country and served 55 million customers across the country. That’s a very big deal.
