“Cripe is experiencing
high growth and our
key goal is to keep
technical training and
as top of mind practices
for 2017. Our
corporate initiatives –
top line growth; streamlining; and recruitment/
retention of top talent – are even more
important as we embrace growth, new staff
and new opportunities. We know these three
corporate initiatives have helped us become
and improve our Best Places to Work culture
in good times and bad – allowing us to take
our work seriously, but not so much ourselves.”

Blue & Co. takes its ranking on the Best Places to Work
list very seriously. We recognize that our people are what
make us unique. They make us who we are. We think that
listening carefully to the feedback of your workforce and acting
on it in a thoughtful and meaningful way provides the foundation
for your company to become an employer of choice.
As part of this, we use the information gathered from
the Best Places to Work surveys to gauge areas for process
improvements throughout the firm. We address each
suggestion in addition to seeking further feedback that
highlights specific operational and cultural matters.
Blue’s leadership team publicly talks through all feedback during our Town Hall
meetings each year, no matter how difficult the conversation. The firm views this candid
dialogue with employees as a valuable opportunity for improvement and education.
In addition to listening to our people, we also pride ourselves on creating a
culture of caring through our active support of community initiatives in each office.
We work hard to create a firm in which people feel connected to one another
through business and social interactions and opportunities to show gratitude to one
another both personally and publicly.
In addition to these items, Blue & Co. provides award winning training for its
employees and encourages its professionals to strive for continual growth and
development. While this is just a short list of the many things Blue & Co. does to
enhance its work environment, we think that these are some of the most important
and vibrant ways to create a Best Place to Work.
