Click Rain has been awarded for promoting a positive work culture.
The Sioux Empire Society for Human Resource Management presented the workplace excellence award at the South Dakota Safety Council’s annual luncheon.
Click Rain was honored in the small business category, for companies between 1 – 100 employees.
Companies were evaluated in several areas including balancing time between work and home, acknowledging exemplary employees, and providing opportunities to grow both at and outside work.
“We want to create an culture that gets our team excited to be at work,” said James Krueger, partner and VP of interactive services. “Awards like this are an added bonus.”
Click Rain was noted for several initiatives in creating an excellent work culture.
- Annual reward trips for meeting company goals, with a 2014 retreat planned for Cancun, Mexico
- Partially funding and providing additional paid days off to support employee attendance on service trips
- Encouraging goal setting both personally and professionally through development plans and meetings
“While these company perks don’t necessarily correlate with increased revenue, we believe people work better when they’re happy,” James said. “And that’s the kind of ROI we value most.”
Click Rain also recently implemented an Atmosphere committee to promote and preserve workplace culture. The committee plans work and community activities, and provides educational opportunities.
