Parent company of LexJet Corporation ranked 20th among midsized businesses.
AUGUST 15, 2014, SARASOTA, FLA. — “We always have fun every day and motivate each other in a positive way” … “This is the only organization I’ve worked for that I can’t wait to get back to work the next day” …
“One word: ‘Family.'”
These are a few of the comments employees at S-One Holdings Corporation wrote in the satisfaction survey that was part of Florida Trend magazine’s scoring for its 2014 list of the Best Companies To Work For In Florida. This survey, in addition to other metrics, helped to rank S-One in the top 20 midsized companies in the state, according to the magazine.
Sarasota-headquartered S-One oversees a number of subsidiary companies including LexJet Corporation, which was named among Florida Trend‘s Best Companies’ rankings of midsized companies for the previous five years in a row. This year, LexJet® is included with the S-One family of companies in the ranking.
“In one year, we’ve brought all the companies together and integrated all of the S-One company cultures into one,” says Art Lambert, who founded LexJet® with Ron Simkins in 1994. “During this process, we’ve multiplied the number of our teammates and went global in six months — you’d expect there to be some hiccups. But according to this employee satisfaction survey, there haven’t been. And now, instead of just LexJet® getting recognition, it’s all of S-One.”
Exceptional customer service and unrivaled employee satisfaction and empowerment were key themes that S-One staff members noted in the survey. “We got the ultimate compliment from our coworkers,” Lambert says. “100 percent of them said they would recommend working here to a friend. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction.
“The top companies seek high-energy employees who vigorously accept the organization’s core values,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty. “The companies that attract these great employees are the same companies that show growth even in a challenging business environment. It’s our pleasure to recognize them and encourage others to build Florida’s competitive advantage.”
