LB Goodman & Co was recently recognized for the third consecutive year as one of New Jersey’s best places to work by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s leading business journal. The company has been repeatedly recognized by NJBIZ as a best place to work.
“When you receive this recognition three years in a row, you realize that everyone’s voices are being heard as we continue to improve year after year,” states managing director David J. Goodman. “Being a Best Place to Work in NJ takes teamwork. Our valued team members work all year to create an environment we can all be proud of.”
Creating an optimal work experience is important to Goodman. The team’s core values include a “can do” culture that encourages everyone to help one another—as well as their clients—to achieve success. Giving back to the community is a priority within the company culture. Committing to a variety of good causes, like rebuilding homes destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, employees create stronger connectivity with one another and the community.
The company’s “can do” mantra makes business sense, too. Goodman believes by taking good care of his employees, his employees will, in turn, take wonderful care of their clients.
Fostering employee engagement has inspired a variety of employee-led initiatives like “Dining with David,” a book club, weekly yoga classes and “Dress Down for Charity,” a community event.
Making employees a priority is a sign of skilled leadership. With historic record-low unemployment, it’s a job seeker’s market. This means employee benefits alone are not enough. Never has it been more important to create a quality employee experience. Such experiences are the right thing to do, plus they are great strategies for employee retention. Happy employees will stay longer, and some will stay for life. And, that, says Goodman, is great for the team, our clients and for business.
