Edmunds.com Named a "Best Place to Work" by Los Angeles Business Journal
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — August 9, 2011 — Edmunds.com, the premier online resource for automotive information, was recognized today as one of Los Angeles Business Journal's Best Places to Work in the large company category (250+ employees) for a second consecutive year.
"We know how important it is to provide a healthy, fun and motivational environment for our employees as they work hard to empower automotive consumers," said Edmunds.com President Avi Steinlauf. "Our company is honored to be recognized once again as a leading employer in Southern California, and we look forward to maintaining this reputation for many more years to come."
Edmunds.com is often praised for its comprehensive benefits package that includes a minimum four weeks paid time off and 14 paid company holidays each year. Employees also enjoy 401(k) plans with matching contributions, subsidized health club memberships, annual cash incentive plans, fully company paid insurances such as accident and disability, fully paid long term care insurance, paid maternity/paternity programs, flexible work schedules, game room, and fresh fruit provided to employees on a daily basis. Additionally, last month, Edmunds.com launched a sabbatical program that allows for up to four months of paid time off for employees with at least ten years of service with the company.
Each year the Los Angeles Business Journal, a weekly publication examining commerce within the LA economy, recognizes the best employers in Los Angeles County. The assessment process reviews company benefits and policies as well as results of an employee engagement and satisfaction survey. The annual assessment is managed by the Best Companies Group.
Last month, the Los Angeles Business Journal also featured Edmunds.com in a profile of rising tech companies in Santa Monica, CA. Edmunds.com has also been recognized as a top workplace by BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal and Architectural Record.
