Mission Wealth Named a 2018 Inc Magazine Best Workplace

Mission Wealth is one of 300 of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee engagement.

Mission Wealth is pleased to announce that we have been named one of Inc magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication’s third annual national ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.

Hitting newsstands in the June 2018 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the award is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies. You can find Mission Wealth's profile on the Inc. Best Workplaces list located here.

Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE, Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.

What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes them all work together.

The survey results confirmed that 100% of Mission Wealth’s employees feel valued by the organization, are highly engaged, and believe that they have access to learning and development opportunities – which they consider vital to an engaged workplace. The term “collaborative” ranked as the top word used at the firm to describe the work environment. Members of the team also feel inspired by the work that they do because it is done to truly impact people’s lives for the better.

Mission Wealth manages over $1.8 billion in assets. The firm is headquartered in Santa Barbara, and has eight other offices located in the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Colorado. Mission Wealth’s offerings include wealth management, investment management, estate planning, risk management, tax management and redefining wealth.

Mission Wealth Named a 2018 Inc Magazine Best Workplace "Our culture at Mission Wealth has been carefully crafted." said Seth Streeter, CEO of Mission Wealth. "We started by selecting the right people, who genuinely listened and cared for others. Next, we shared our vision of empowerment. For our team, this came in the form of education, training, setting a clear path for career advancement, team building practices and providing a very strong benefits package. For our clients, empowerment came in the form of supporting them tangibly and holistically toward making their financial and life dreams a reality, and then celebrating milestones achieved along the way. A lot of it is how we all show up energetically each day. We love what we do and it shows."

The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:

  • Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
  • Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
  • When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.

“By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief.
