Just before CoVID-19 reared it’s head here in the US, I was notified that had been nationally recognized by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work. Previously Vantagepoint was singled out as one of the top 50 small businesses in the United States for its workplace culture by Great Place to Work and Fortune. Being recognized as the leader of a great company was really thrilling and humbling!
Beyond offering a superior product, we’ve created an award-winning workplace culture dedicated to the development of every employee, connecting diverse people to a common purpose, practicing humility and empathy, adapting to uncertainty, and fostering trusting relationships.
This is an unprecedented time in history! It’s difficult to find things to celebrate right now. I take my role very seriously – not only for our team but for our entire Vantagepoint family.
But, in the midst of it all, we’ve been noticed for our culture built on innovation, teamwork, communication, positivity, passion, purpose, respect, and integrity. Those values guide our every decision and are my touchstone as a leader.
At the gala presentation in San Francisco, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said, “The financial performance of these organizations and the industry leading commitment to corporate responsibility provide strong evidence that when you create a great place to work for all, it is better for business, better for people, and better for the world.” I couldn’t agree more! We are an integral part of the health and vibrance of our community with our commercial and philanthropic work; and we provide education, and white-glove service to our traders in over 120 countries. In times of uncertainity, we can be a force for good and empower traders to protect themselves in the highly volatile markets.
My goal is to provide a voice of surety and consistency for my team and our entire family of traders. I’m thankful that our software gives traders foresight and the ability to plan for change. While we are watching thousands of traders lose decades of hard-earned capital, our traders are able to mitigate their losses and even profit amidst this historic volatility.
I’m proud to say that my entire team is here to support and empower our Vantagepoint traders.
