Cydcor Ranks Among San Fernando Valley’s 2010 ‘Best Places to Work’ for Third Year

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ — Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, was named among the “Best Places to Work” by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal for the third year in a row and ranked #4 for area mid-sized companies (25 to 249 employees).

The Business Journal and Best Companies Group worked together to identify and recognize area companies with a strong commitment to workplace excellence.  Both publicly and privately held organizations were selected based on benefits, corporate philanthropy, policies, work-life balance, internal working conditions, local management, satisfaction, camaraderie and support of employees’ personal growth.  Selections were based on company surveys and employee comments.

“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the area’s ‘Best Places to Work’ for a third year,” said Gary Polson, chief executive officer of Cydcor.  “Cydcor is committed to rewarding its employees – who continue to deliver exceptional results for clients, and at the same time, make positive contributions in their communities through philanthropic work.”

Cydcor was specifically recognized for a supportive work environment and culture, volunteer opportunities, quality and commitment of management, and benefits.

Team members are eligible for benefits in the month following their hire date.  Beginning in their first year, each employee receives 15 days of sick and vacation time.  Team members can also occasionally arrange to work from home.  Cydcor provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), including mental health counseling and referrals, wellness and smoking cessation programs.  Cydcor also provides supplemental life insurance, a Flexible Spending Account, a Dependent Care Spending Account, and Franklin Covey Time Management System training for all new hires.  In order to maintain open communication between company leaders and team members, Cydcor provides a suggestion box, open-door policy, employee surveys and organizational newsletters.

Cydcor puts a large emphasis on corporate philanthropy.  The Cydcor Cares program provides team members with eight volunteer hours a year to work together and puts them in touch with low to no-cost charitable opportunities that they can participate in individually or as an organized group activity.  This past year, the company kicked off its new Cydcor Cares program with a reading fair that took place at the Boys and Girls Club.  More than 500 team members from offices throughout the country also dedicated nearly 300 hours to local communities through charity and volunteer work – helping more than 28 organizations through Cydcor’s Neighborhood Leader Program.  Additionally, Cydcor made a donation to the Intrepid Museum Foundation’s Sea, Air & Space Museum in honor of Board Member Dan Frederickson’s service in the U.S. Marines.  Earlier this year, Cydcor donated clothing, shoes, and first aid supplies to earthquake survivors in Haiti through Haiti Gospel Mission.
