Satori Capital received a “Best Companies to Work For in Fort Worth” award from FW Inc. magazine on November 9, 2016. The award ranked the top 16 companies in Fort Worth, Texas, for employee satisfaction and engagement. Satori ranked highest in the small companies category.
“We’re delighted and humbled to receive this recognition of our culture and our focus on our team members’ well-being,” said Randy Eisenman, one of Satori’s founders. “We’ve built our culture very deliberately, so an award like this is a great affirmation of that effort.”
Some of the benefits offered by Satori that impressed the judges included company-paid gym memberships, biennial health screenings, monthly Optimal Living advisor visits, flexible schedules, generous time off, chef-prepared healthy lunches daily, on-site guided meditations, and stress management support.
The November/December 2016 issue of FW Inc. includes a multi-page feature on Satori that highlights several team members’ thoughts about working at the investment firm.
“People rarely feel as if they’re making sacrifices to be here in their lives,” said CFO Willie Houston, referring to the company’s flexible schedules. Associate James Gorski talked about the firm’s culture, saying, “We celebrate learners, reward honest communication, seek a purpose higher than making money, and, most importantly, strive to create lasting value for all of our stakeholders.” Faith Geiger, Satori’s stakeholder engagement manager, summed up the firm’s approach to its team members by saying, “When we hire people and when we on-board, we try to take a whole-person approach. We explore – what do they want to bring to the workplace? What makes them thrive?”
This is the second award Satori has received for its culture and workplace excellence. It previously ranked number one in Pensions & Investments magazine’s Best Places to Work in Money Management for 2015.
Eight other companies, from nonprofits to publicly held businesses, competed for the top spot in the small companies category. Rankings were awarded based on an analysis of employer-provided benefits and anonymous surveys completed by employees. The contest was administered and judged by an independent research firm, the Best Companies Group, that specializes in identifying great places to work.
