At the beginning of the novel Anna Karenina, written in 1877 by Russian author Leo Tolstoy, he said “All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Over a century later this quote is still valid and equally true for modern-day businesses. Corporations only exist on paper; it is the people that come together as a business family to make the organization come alive. All happy work families resemble one another and each unhappy work family is unhappy it its own way.
There are thousands if not millions of companies in our country, but truly great companies with happy work families are unique. Two of the primary differentiators that all great companies share are a strong and visible culture and an absolute focus on their clients.
A business’ culture is more than its look and feel; it is how the business gets things done – both formally and informally. Creating a strong culture is not something that comes easily; it takes a tremendous amount of energy and daily dedication from every professional within the company. We are proud to be celebrating Seaside’s fifth year in business. While we are excited about our many accomplishments, one of the items we are most proud of is our strong and consistent culture and our unwavering focus on you, our valued client.
Our cultural values set the standard by which we work and conduct business.
