They include Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Recruitment, Selection and Orientation; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Communication and Shared Vision; Diversity and Inclusion; Work-Life Balance; Community Initiatives and Strategic Company Performance.
“At Arena, we’ve built a corporate environment that fosters teamwork, an open exchange of ideas and hard work, but also balances the need to have fun and a life outside of the office,” said Craig Livingston, CEO of Arena Solutions. “We believe that if we create an atmosphere where people are happy where they work, this will be reflected in our production as a company. Being honored by the NABR two years in a row is affirmation that we’ve created a rich environment that creates superior results.”
