Press Release from Blue Beyond Consulting, Inc.

CASTRO VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have named Blue Beyond Consulting to its list of 2019 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area. The honor places Blue Beyond among the top 35 small and medium companies recognized for outstanding workplace culture.

The ranking considered more than 30,000 employee surveys from companies across the San Francisco Bay Area. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employee feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

"To earn this recognition in the Bay Area—where competition for top talent and an emphasis on workplace culture is especially high—is both exciting and affirming for us," said Cheryl Fields Tyler, Founder and CEO, Blue Beyond Consulting. "We hold our culture dear because it's truly what makes us, us. Having a culture of trust, authenticity, and genuine human connection allows us to do what we do best: help our clients build organizations where both the business and the people thrive."

While a small company, Blue Beyond makes a big effort to provide perks and programs on par with leading Bay Area companies. This includes a comprehensive competitive benefits package with 100% of health insurance premiums paid, a flexible work schedule, unlimited PTO, and designated time for professional development and days of service. The company recently added a Peer Recognition Program, which sets aside $250 for each employee to gift their colleagues however they wish to acknowledge their great work.

"Employers in the Bay Area face a competitive labor market as well as an incredible diversity of local and international talent attracted to its opportunities," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Organizations like Blue Beyond stand out from the crowd, intentionally growing their businesses by creating great places to work for all, driving their innovation and success through their people."

The Best Workplaces in the Bay Area is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
