Sarasota, Fla. — S-One Holdings Corporation is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the first time. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at S-One.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work®. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earing this designation means that S-One is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

Since we started this company in 1994, it has been our mission to make sure our employees enjoy coming to work and that they know we appreciate them. We are very pleased about this certification!”
During the year 2020, S-One Holdings implemented new and innovative ways to keep the team connected despite working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Employee Experience and Engagement Team (E3 Team) planned Zoom parties and even planned an outdoor Halloween event for employees and their families.
Executive Vice President of Culture Angie Gruss said, “The most important thing to S-One is our people. We have a dedicated group focused on creating an employee experience that is supportive, engaging, focused on individual growth, and of course fun! It is great to know they feel positive about working at S-One and our efforts, especially in this past year, have made a difference.”
