Software firm’s culture centers on celebrations

On the desk of every Benefitfocus employee is a cowbell, which the associate may ring to announce that he or she has closed a big deal—or gotten engaged or is expecting a baby.

In fact, employees of the Charles­­ton, S.C.-based benefits software company spend a lot of time celebrating personal and professional milestones at parties for everything from holidays to company successes. Fetes with themes like “Winter Wonderland” and “Margaritaville” celebrate the launch of every new software product. Employees’ families are invited to birthday parties and company picnics.

President and CEO Shawn Jenkins notes that a core company value is “celebrate.” Others are “provide anticipatory service,” “respect the individual” and “together.”

“It’s the little things that make this a great place to work,” says Chief Interaction Designer Matthew Brown, who points to the company’s ultra-casual dress code, team meetings conducted on couches and an guitar-playing employee who often entertains colleagues.
