CLEVELAND (March 3, 2016) – Skoda Minotti, a national business advisory firm headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, has been selected as a winner of the 2017 Smart Culture Awards, a recognition of Northeast Ohio organizations where culture plays a crucial role in the company’s success. The firm will be recognized at the 2017 Smart Culture Conference on April 6, 2017, hosted by Smart Business.

Recipients of the Smart Culture Awards are chosen based on the extent to which an organization’s culture reflects its mission and values, and how specific activities – such as recognition events and contests – lead to a collaborative environment.

“We’re very pleased to be recognized for the way in which we live our core values each and every day,” said Gregory J. Skoda, CPA, chairman. “Our three core values – Teamwork, Family Oriented and Innovation – serve to inform existing and potential clients of who we are and what we value; help every employee of the firm Deliver on the Promise to our clients; and serve as our primary recruiting and retention tool. Our culture is meant to encourage a collaborative environment that fosters teamwork, recognition and continuous improvement.”

In addition to highlighting the firm’s core values at firmwide meetings, Skoda Minotti developed training and recognition programs that reinforce the core values and engrain them in the daily culture.

“Our employees are invited and encouraged to share ideas and opinions to improve culture and performance in our monthly staff meetings, 360 feedback, job evaluations, upward evaluations and Stay Interviews,” said Director of Human Resources, Laura Rohde. “Employees are encouraged to share new ideas that enrich the firm’s culture and positively transform our business.”

The Smart Culture Conference, scheduled to take place at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven, will recognize organizations that have developed a culture that bolsters productivity, enhances job satisfaction and provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace. This program will explore how culture can become an asset to drive performance, transform your organization into an employer-of-choice and ultimately impact the bottom line.
