SimVentions Named to Inc.’s Inaugural ‘50 Best Places to Work’ in 2016!

FREDERICKSBURG VIRGINIA, MAY 26, 2016 — Inc. Magazine named SimVentions to its list of the 50 Best Places to Work in 2016! Inc. put it this way: “We hear it over and over again at Inc.: The biggest challenge that your business faces is finding and keeping the best people. That’s why building a workplace culture that allows your staff to grow with the bottom line is critical. To guide and inspire you, Inc. has produced a roster of the 50 Best Workplaces, the first such measurement of American companies with up to 500 employees…these 50 companies show you how to create a culture to find and keep the very best employees.”

“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as one of the best places to work in America! Although we strive to generate, encourage, and maintain a strong culture…it’s really our exceptional, talented, innovative, and caring employees living out our purpose, vision, mission, and core values – in a natural and everyday-kind-of-way – that makes the difference!” said Lawrence Root, SimVentions CEO. “Our culture is summed up beautifully by the Bible reference from Galatians 5:13 – For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. We are simply a family of patriots, focusing hard on serving God, country, our military, our customers, our community, and each other – and having lots of fun along the way!”

To find the true innovators in managing and motivating people, Inc. audited more than 500 companies that completed online applications in February and March. To be eligible, applicants had to have been in business at least three years, have between five and 500 employees, be based in the United States, and be independent and privately owned, with 2015 revenue of at least $2 million. Inc. scored companies in three main areas: Wallet and workplace; Employee feedback; and Performance innovation. Inc. found that “the most glaring difference between the best performers and the also-rans is how companies set and track goals. The high scorers set individual, team, department, and company goals and communicate results in ways visible to all.”

SimVentions, Inc. is a DOD contractor with its corporate headquarters located in Stafford County, just outside of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
