VantagePoint Named Seventh Best Small/Medium Employer in South Carolina
Good news arrives just in time for 20th anniversary celebration
Greenville, S.C. — VantagePoint Marketing, a Greenville-based business-to-business marketing, advertising and public relations firm, has been named the Seventh Best Place to Work in South Carolina in the small/medium employer category of the annual state competition. The accolade, awarded by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, Best Companies Group and SCBIZ, was announced October 8th at an awards banquet at the Embassy Suites in Columbia.
“I am thrilled with this recognition,” said Craig O’Neal, president and CEO of VantagePoint. “It is a real tribute to both our significant intentionality of creating a winning culture and to the outstanding associates who make up this company.”
Rankings for the Best Places to Work program are based on a detailed questionnaire about company benefits and policies (25%) and an employee survey that measures engagement and satisfaction (75%). Once winners are announced, all participating companies receive a report on their employee survey to help identify and improve opportunities for creating a better workplace.
CFO Tricia Cruver has been with VantagePoint for almost 19 of its 20 years. “From the beginning, it was clear to me that I was valued for my contributions, that I mattered as a person and not just as someone to do the work. I’ve been given opportunities to grow and develop in many areas, being stretched but, also, being coached and encouraged along the way.”
The agency’s newest associate, account executive Virginia Vanvick, already feels the same way. “It was clear to me from day one that each of us at VantagePoint is uniquely valued for what we bring to the table. There’s this amazing positive atmosphere that makes you want to work hard for your company and your clients, and the work produced here is so impressive. I count myself very lucky to be a part of this team.”
VantagePoint will mark its 20th anniversary in November and celebrated this week with a gala event that paid tribute to the work, clients, vendors, associates, supporters and others who have played a part in the agency’s longevity and success.
“Winning this recognition in the same week we are celebrating our 20th anniversary is like icing on the cake,” O’Neal said proudly. “It’s a real testament to the entire team here at VantagePoint.”
