CLEARWATER, Fla. — AutoLoop LLC has received the 2018 “Workplace Culture Program of the Year” award from Tampa Bay Tech, Florida’s largest technology council, the company announced. Presented in a ceremony on Nov. 9, the award recognizes local area companies that have created exceptional environments in which to work.
Whether it’s regularly sponsoring events that contribute to the community or providing enjoyable activities onsite, companies like AutoLoop use a unique blend of creative initiatives designed to inspire, motivate, and reward their employees, said Lisa Snyder, the company’s senior director of human resources.
“We believe our culture really sets us apart from other companies,” Snyder said. “Our leadership places a huge value on creating a workplace that encourages having fun, as well as being productive. Not only does it let employees know they’re appreciated, it’s also how we develop the great relationships that, in turn, consistently produce outstanding results for our organization.”
Besides describing what makes their workplace more enjoyable, contenders for Tampa Bay Tech’s annual award also had to explain how their unique workplaces impact the programs or products they generate. For the approximately 415 “Loopsters” who design, build, illustrate, and sell the company’s best-in-class automotive software, the extraordinary perks create an invaluable team dynamic. In doing so, AutoLoop continually reinforces a culture where the success of each department is integral to the success of all the others, Snyder said.
“We all depend heavily on one another for specific deliverables to accomplish our goals. Getting together at a fun party or charity event really helps strengthen those relationships that have to work well day in and day out. And it allows us to better serve our clients — the dealers who depend on our software to make their businesses run more smoothly.”
