Building a culture that makes people want to come to work every day isn’t easy, but it’s incredibly rewarding—especially when you get a little acknowledgment. That’s why we’re grateful to be included in Orange County Business Journal’s list of the Best Places to Work in Orange County 2016.
The honor, created in partnership with Best Companies Group, is awarded based on workplace policies, practices, and demographics, as well as an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
Column Five was born in Orange County, so this means a lot. We’ve evolved from a couple of guys in a coffee shop to offices in Newport Beach and, now, our current headquarters in Irvine. As we’ve grown, we’ve always put culture front and center, doing our best to practice what we preach and live by our core values, both here and in our New York office.
We feel strongly about cultivating a strong community where you are, which is why we do our part to help our fellow OC creatives through our #ConnectingThings speaker events and help partners like UCI and Goodwill of Orange County tell their stories. It’s all part of our mission to help everyone live happier and healthier lives—something that always starts at home.
Many thanks to the Orange County Business Journal for recognizing us, as well as the many other people doing great work in our county. We hope we can continue to contribute to Orange County’s economy, workforce, and businesses for a long time.
