Find Your Influence Named Best Place to Work

“I really appreciate the integrity and heart with which this organization operates and that comes from the top. All of us at Find Your Influence are in it together.”

On December 12 Find Your Influence was recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal as a finalist in the 2019 Best Place to Work awards. Earlier in 2019, all Phoenix-based FYI employees were surveyed answered a series of questions anonymously offering insights into employee engagement and satisfaction.

The Best Places to Work program measures a wide range of research-validated workplace factors impacting employee engagement and satisfaction. Scores can range from 0-100 with 100 being the best possible score.

Employee feedback earned Find Your Influence a Best Places to Work Score of 95 percent. The word recurring most frequently to describe their work environment was “collaborative.” 

“This is such an exciting recognition because it’s an honest reflection of how our employees feel about working on the FYI team,” said Cristine Vieira, FYI President and co-founder. “As we continue to build our team, staying true to our culture and core values is central to our success.”

When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. Ninety-five percent of employees surveyed indicated that the senior leaders of the organization value people as their most important resource.

One of FYI’s core values is “Unleash Your Inner Cheerleader” and this was demonstrated in the open-ended feedback shared by employees:

“I really appreciate the integrity and heart with which this organization operates and that comes from the top. All of us are in it together. When there are issues, leadership is seeking solutions, not blame. People stay for long periods of time, they are careful about who they hire and when they hire. They go out of their way to thank and appreciate everyone for their efforts. This is truly a wonderful organization that I feel lucky to be a part of.”

“The leadership at this company treats all employees like family and respects and encourages work ­ life balance. Additionally, during our space remodel, both the CEO and President chose to work in the smallest office space while giving others much larger, more accommodating work space. If that doesn’t show selflessness and wanting the best for your employees I don’t know what does.”

“My favorite part of working at Find Your Influence is the collaboration and energy. Though a lot of my work requires silence and solitude for me to fully focus and be successful, being able to juxtapose that with coming into a collaborative and energetic environment helps to balance and spark moments of creativity and accountability. Plus, it is fun to work with people that I now consider friends.”
