SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake and pond management, fisheries management and related environmental services for the United States, is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia list. This is the company's third year named on the list. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Virginia was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group. SOLitude was recently honored at an awards ceremony at the Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg, VA.
SOLitude provides their team members with a number of amazingly unique benefits. Through their environmental stewardship and community outreach program, The SOLution, team members are rewarded for their individual volunteer efforts in the form of gift cards or a company donation to the staff member’s charitable organization of choice (which coincides with the amount of volunteer hours accrued by the staff member over the course of the year). The company’s SOL Savings program provides bonuses for employees who discover a way to help the company be more efficient and save money. Ongoing training and professional development opportunities for the entire staff are offered through the SOLitude University program. To build company culture and encourage camaraderie, SOLitude celebrates birthdays with the team member’s favorite desert, rewards company milestones, has a variety of outings, dinners and happy hour events, and provides company branded gear. The team is also rewarded in December with an all-expense-paid holiday celebration weekend full of fun activities and team events, with spouses or significant others included. Employees reap the benefits of their hard work in the form of performance based incentives and generous profit sharing bonuses. Additionally, flexible work schedules and telecommuting options are offered. On top of these perks, they also offer more traditional benefits such as 401(k) with company match as well as choice of health and dental plans.
“We have worked to create a company that revolves around our culture, which makes our team stronger and results in happier employees and clients,” said Kevin Tucker, CEO at SOLitude Lake Management. “We work hard, we play hard and we are passionate about what we do. And I believe this mentality, combined with our shared mission of ‘creating a better world’, contributes to the happiness of our employees and, in turn, the success of our company.”
