Snelling is proud to announce that our Huntsville, Alabama franchise was named one of Huntsville/Madison County’s 2018 Best Places to Work. Snelling Huntsville was honored with the Gold designation in the Micro business category of 10-24 employees.
The winners were announced at the 11th Annual Best Places to Work Luncheon, hosted by the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama. More than 150 local companies were nominated for the annual award, and winners were determined exclusively based upon the responses of employee-completed surveys.
The Snelling Huntsville franchise has been in operation since 1965 and was most recently purchased by Paul and Kathryn Brashier in 2013. Winning this award was a goal the Brashiers set when they bought the franchise five years ago.
“We strive to make our office environment one that our employees want to be a part of,” said Kathryn Brashier. “Winning the Best Places to Work award is a huge vote of confidence from the people we work alongside every day.”
In addition to winning the 2018 Best Places to Work award, the Snelling – Huntsville franchise also won 12 company awards at Snelling’s Annual Franchise Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2017, the Huntsville franchise was recognized as Snelling’s second-highest performing office in the network.
“We owe our success to good employees and flexibility, and honestly, I think flexibility is the key,” said Kathryn. “Employees can be ‘good’ or skilled all day long, but if we don’t give them the flexibility needed to achieve a good work/life balance, then we have a skilled, unhappy employee that does not translate into a productive employee. Employees that feel valued and appreciated become motivated team players!”
Through that mindset, Paul and Kathryn have cultivated a true “Snamily” – short for ‘Snelling family’ – that is empowered to connect exceptional people with exceptional opportunities in the Huntsville, Alabama area.
Congratulations to Paul and Kathryn and the entire Snelling Huntsville franchise! We are so proud of your accomplishments and look forward to your continued success.
