Guidant was selected from among more than 200 companies nominated for consideration. Employees from all participating companies completed anonymous surveys, and judges ranked the companies based on the survey information. The survey examined work-related categories including attraction/retention of employees, organizational communication, working environment, decision-making and supervision, performance management, rewards/recognition, employee benefits, career development, learning and leadership.
“This recognition is particularly meaningful for Guidant,” says David Nilssen, president and CEO of Guidant Financial Group. “When this company was founded, we had less than $10,000 and only a couple of computers; we knew recruiting, training and retaining great staff would be difficult given our limited resources. So we endeavored to create a unique and fun environment to attract great people. And it worked! The culture we have enjoyed over the past four years is very special, and I sincerely appreciate the vital role Guidant’s staff has played in making this an award-winning company.” Today, Guidant employs 86 employees across four states.
Guidant Financial Group was founded in 2003 to provide people with safe, innovative ways to utilize and maximize their individual retirement accounts before retirement age. Since its inception, Guidant has grown each year by 200 percent. Guidant continues to gain local and national recognition;
