Washingtonian – Great Place to Work
2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009
Cassaday & Company, Inc. was named by Washingtonian as one of Washington D.C.’s Great Places to Work for 2019. Washingtonian has been recognizing Great Places to Work since 2009. Cassaday & Company, Inc. has been fortunate to receive this honor each year it has been offered.
The Washingtonian evaluates over 200 companies and more than 8,000 employee surveys for the Great Place to Work awards. Ratings on compensation and benefits, interesting and meaningful work, great work/life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees are factored together through employee surveys to select award recipients.
For 25 years, Cassaday & Company, Inc. has operated under the belief that our employees are our greatest resource. Employees are encouraged to make decisions independently, as we have learned that empowered employees become confident, self-reliant top performers who do better work because they feel vested in what they do every day and take pride in and responsibility for their work.
Our mission is, and always has been, to provide an excellent client experience. We work collaboratively, hold each other accountable, and set high expectations for one another to achieve the best possible outcomes for all clients daily. To ensure our employees are able to work at their best at all time, we provide a unique compensation plan where all employees have ‘income equity’ and are paid primarily based on firm revenues. As firm revenue is dependent on the growth of our assets under management, retention, total client satisfaction, and the continuing belief that we add value over and above our fee. If clients are unhappy, don’t refer friends, colleagues, and relatives or if they leave it has a direct financial impact on all employees. Tying employee compensation directly to client satisfaction seemed obvious to us.
We are extremely proud of the recognition we receive from industry leaders, peers, and the local community, but being recognized consistently as a Best Place to Work is something we’re especially proud of. Learn why here.
