The Principal 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security Recognizes Quick Left as National Leader

BOULDER, Colo., September 30, 2014 — Inc. Magazine has recognized Quick Left on its “Principal Financial Group 10 Best Companies For Employee Financial Security 2014” list. The list annually highlights 10 companies throughout the nation that strike the right balance between building a culture that helps employees take control of their financial future, and providing them with the best possible array of benefits.

Quick Left implements a myriad of benefits that promote a healthy lifestyle, both in and out of the office. Some of their amenities that landed them the spot on the list include ample holiday and vacation time, gym memberships, FSA funding, and an annual stipend for tech-related experiences and items that enhance employees’ learning and improve job performance.

Quick Left offers employees tech, health, and wellness stipends that “give employees an excuse to buy themselves something fun they might otherwise not purchase” says Quick Left’s CEO and Co-Founder, Ingrid Alongi, “That said, it’s important to look at the overall makeup of the company: are people in the phase of their lives where they are in their first job, buying their first home, having children? Offering benefits that serve the diversity of employees is important.”

The recognized 10 companies receive $2,500 to donate to their charity of choice. Quick Left will be donating their awarded funds to NCWIT: National Center for Women and Information Technology located in Boulder. NCWIT is a non-profit community renowned for taking action in recruiting, retaining, and advancing women from K-12 and higher education through industry and entrepreneurial careers.

“We are honored to be recognized for our company culture” says Quick Left’s CEO and Co-Founder, Ingrid Alongi, “We really value our employees. And we’re thrilled to be donating to NCWIT, as well. Women unfortunately represent an enormously untapped talent pool in our industry, and Quick Left is happy to promote an organization to help women succeed in the tech world.”

Quick Left will be formally accepting the award at a lunch celebration on October 23rd at their Boulder office.
