Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily—it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Flashpoint is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
“We’re thrilled to be Great Place to Work-Certified™ for the second year in a row,” said Lisa Iadanza, Chief People Officer of Flashpoint. “The Flashpoint employee and new hire experience is our top priority and it informs everything we do.

How Flashpoint is building a people-first company
In 2021, Flashpoint’s People team executed a number of initiatives to support the remote worker and remote new hire experience. All staff—new and tenured—were given additional stipends to set up their home work environments. Furthermore, the team kicked off a new hire buddy program, which pairs new Flashpointers with employees from another team in order to build enduring and nurture-driven relationships across the company.
The People team also continued to set up virtual learning experiences and a myriad company-wide events, such as diversity and inclusion (D&I) discussion groups, trivia nights, holiday-themed activities, and other fun diversions. Finally, the People team implemented greater and improved benefits, including the 2022 kick-off of a 401K match program—as well as access to Aaptiv, Headspace and Origin—to support the physical, mental and financial well being of Flashpoint employees, as well.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
