Vistage Member Company Sage Rutty & Co. Inc. Recognized by FORTUNE Magazine and Rochester Democrat & Chronicle as Great Place to Work

San Diego, CA, September 25, 2014 – Vistage member company Sage Rutty & Company was named to Fortune Magazine’s 50 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list for 2014. Ranked #11, this is the second consecutive year Sage Rutty has received this honor.

Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Sage Rutty participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Fortune’s partner, Great Place to Work®, evaluates each company based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.

“Our culture at Sage Rutty is built around mutual trust and empowerment in our employees,” said Wayne Holly, CEO and Vistage member since 2006. “Our commitment to upholding these values, encouraging our employees to feel comfortable sharing their opinions and creating a fun place to work creates the foundation for our ‘best company’ work culture.”

“The work of these companies is quite impressive,” said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “They provide an example that others can look to, to see what kind of outstanding workplace is possible—regardless of size, industry, or other circumstances. For example, the growth that many of these companies are experiencing is tremendous, and they are paying close attention to culture every step of the way. This focus on a strong cultural foundation will help pave the way for continued success as they serve their employees and their customers.”

In addition to its national recognition by Fortune Magazine, Sage Rutty & Company was also named by the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle as #1 on the Top Workplaces 2014 list in the Small Companies division. The company was chosen from a pool of 75 firms, with more than 7,100 employees surveyed.
