Founder and CEO Greg KihlstrÃ¶m reinvigorated the culture of Carousel30âs workplace in the past two years after taking full ownership of the agency. Looking to keep the company culture collaborative, successÂdriven, and enjoyable to work in were top priorities. âTime and time again, clients tell us we understand them better than any of our competitors have. This not only means a lot to a company whose chief value is greater understanding of our clients, our work, and each other, but it also means we have a culture that is clientÂcentric and focused on working together to solve challenges in the best way possible,â said KihlstrÃ¶m, âThis award says that Carousel30 is on the right track.â Â
Additionally, Carousel30 created and practices a clear set of five values that include understanding theirÂ clients, using technology to help humanity, encouraging a collaborative environment from every team member, among others. Carousel30 also has implemented several officeÂwide policies that include an open office for easy communication, regular volunteer opportunities within the industry and within the community. Employees foster camaraderie by participating in quarterly retreats to foster team growth, which has included outings to Nationals games and painting studios, where each team member illustrated a company value through art. Employees are consistently rewarded for great work through company lunches, happy hours, and a flexible work schedule.Â
