We are proud to share that Totem has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Places to Work for 2021. We were selected from thousands of submissions and honored for creating an exceptional workplace through our vibrant culture, employee engagement, and the benefits we offer our people.
How was Totem selected as one of Inc.’s best workplaces?
To be considered for this prestigious recognition, we took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then they ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.
We have always been a “people before profit” organization. We work relentlessly to foster a culture that rewards hard work, teamwork, and accountability. At Totem, work-life balance is intentional as part of our core values.
Our culture prioritizes people
“It’s easy to claim to have a strong work culture, and plenty of places have a beer fridge or a ping pong table,” says Operations Manager, Christi Paralitici. “What Totem has is so much more than that. Our core values permeate our communications with each other, our clients, and pretty much anyone that comes through the door. I’ve learned that we don’t just talk the talk, we also walk the walk, in a way that makes me proud to call Totem my home.”
We carefully foster an environment where people are excited to come to the office and do meaningful work that makes a difference to those we serve. We recognize achievements and contributions, we foster a diverse & inclusive environment, and we empower our people to elevate themselves and each other.
