I love to write. I love to help people. And, the fact that I get paid to do both makes me love working for Quizzle. In fact, out of all the jobs I’ve had, my position at Quizzle tops the list as my favorite. Quizzle is the best place in the world to work in my eyes. But now, there is more to that statement than just my opinion.
Today, I joined Todd Albery, CEO of Quizzle (and my Team Leader), at the 2012 Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces award breakfast, where Quicken Loans and Quizzle topped the list (large category) of ‘Top Workplaces in Michigan.’
One of the primary goals of the competition is to find out which employers in the state excel at keeping their employees motivated and satisfied. The rankings are based on short, confidential surveys filled out by employees.
And the winner is…
My heart was pounding as the Free Press got ready to announce the winner. Quicken Loans and Quizzle already had a winning streak that spanned two years, but this was my first year as part of the team, and I wanted my team members to once again bask in the glory of taking home such a prestigious award.
And, then the winner was announced… and the crowd went wild! Ok, not really – but Table 60 – the table jam-packed with Quicken Loans and Quizzle team members did. I was smiling so hard my face hurt. I was so proud to be a part of such a rewarding experience.
“It’s exciting to be recognized for what we do and how we do it,” said Todd Albery, CEO of Quizzle. “We have such a great team at Quizzle. Our company has really expanded this year and with our growth we hope to see more good things in the future – for our sister companies, and for the city of Detroit. Congratulations to our friends at Quicken Loans and Title Source for also being honored.”
Here are some reasons (funny and serious) why my team members love Quizzle too:
“Just like where you live is all about your neighbors, where you work is all about the people. The great culture and innovative atmosphere attracts great people that are great to work with. Quizzle is challenging and fun – who can ask for more.” – Laura, Sr. Project Manager
“We have an amazing atmosphere that encourages creativity. We also have foosball tables, an endless supply of coffee and snacks… and I get to work with the most positive and talented people in the city every day!” – Paul, Director IT
“Quizzle from top to bottom has an awesome attitude and energy that is hard to beat.” – Brent, Software Engineer
