Newsday Recognizes National as Top Small Employer on Long Island

National Business Capital & Services was recently recognized as the #1 Small Business Employer on Long Island by Newsday, the leading Long Island newspaper! Newsday also recognized National as a Top “Doer” for  Innovative, Tech-Forward Marketing & IT Practices.

At National, we’ve made employee culture, satisfaction and experience a top priority as we help business owners along their journeys. We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of the best places to work on Long Island! As we move forward, we’ll continue our dedication to innovation, collaborative culture, and forward-thinking mentality.

Top Places to Work: Where National’s Great Company Culture Made a Splash

Hiring motivated and customer service-oriented employees is the best way to achieve great results. But engaging company culture is a critical piece of the puzzle, and that’s the key factor that allows our Business Financing Advisors to deliver the best possible customer service.

Newsday: National Named the Top Small Employer in 2019

As Long Island’s premier newspaper, Newsday offers local readers insights into emerging national and local business trends. Newsday recognized National as one of the best companies to work for in 2019!

National’s employee-first culture is a large part of what helps our team attract the best talent around, and make employees feel welcome, empowered, and valued. Rather than simply being a buzzword or an afterthought, company culture is the fiber of what makes National a great place to work!

The HIA: Ranking as a Finalist in the Business Achievement Awards

The Hauppauge Industrial Association, also known as the HIA, also named National a finalist in the Business Achievement Awards!

A non-profit organization that serves as a voice for Long Island businesses, the HIA represents tens of thousands of businesses. It’s located in the heart of the Hauppauge Industrial Park, the largest business park in the region, and the second largest in the nation behind Silicon Valley.

The HIA celebrates the top places to work for in 2019 that drive economic development in the area. As a Long Island-based company that encourages small businesses across the country to grow, National is proud to encourage local economic development. 

The criteria for the Business Achievement Award focuses on companies that offer more job opportunities, comprehensive healthcare packages, and innovative practices.

The Impact of the Delivering Happiness Program

While we’re proud to have a rewarding and engaging company culture, the Delivering Happiness program helped us to lay the groundwork for a stronger culture!

This consulting program helps companies to assess areas in which they need to improve their culture, and make improvements accordingly. But while employee satisfaction is the primary focus, it’s not the only one. Delivering Happiness also helps business owners to maximize productivity and revenue through the best company culture!

Delivering Happiness helped the team at National to define our core values, which are:

  • Lead & Innovate
  • Teamwork
  • Integrity
  • Empathy & Respect
  • Adapt and Change
  • Committed
  • Fun

As one of the best places to work, National offers a variety of perks, including:

  • The best medical and dental benefits packages
  • Generous PTO policies
  • Leading 401K retirement programs

And more!

These life-improving perks play a large role in keeping our team motivated and enthusiastic, but we’ve also integrated a fun culture in other ways, too.

Creating a Great Company Culture Through Fun Initiatives

At National, we like to say that we “put the Fun back in funding”!

Delivering Happiness also encouraged us to integrate fun initiatives in our day-to-day to relieve stress and stay motivated, like:

  • Company mixers that help employees working in different departments get to know each other in a more relaxed setting
  • Fun activities like volleyball, team meals, and community service that help employees unwind from a stressful work week
  • Weekly snack carts to reward employees for their efforts and help them anticipate a fun weekend

But a great company culture extends beyond simply hosting fun activities every once in a while. It means building a collaborative workplace where everyone’s voice matters, and employees are rewarded for their efforts.

That’s why National began distributing WOW cards!

Employees can present WOW cards to each other for going above and beyond their responsibilities or doing a great job! The employee’s selected ‘anthem’ (a song or video clip of their choice) plays throughout the office to alert everyone whenever an employee receives a WOW card!

Beyond recognizing these employees for their contributions, WOW Cards also drive great company culture by entering recipients into a quarterly raffle. Winners can choose from a number of valuable prizes!
