The Top Company Cultures list has placed Trios Salon as #17 in the Small Company categoryTrios Salon is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.

“At Trios we are doing our best to change the conversation about what a beauty salon should look like. In a time where more and more professionals are working alone in micro booths and encouraged to be their own boss our industry loses what makes us beautiful,” says Somer Krueger, owner of Trios Salon.  “We believe trust, love, connection, personal growth and development, a career path and a team that cares for you is true beauty. With these values we have a cohesive team that respects each other, wants the best for the company and has the ability to achieve results the industry has never seen before.”

“Great company cultures don’t happen by accident. They happen because leaders understand how to create excellent working environments, and how to make everyone share the same mission,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 2018 Top Company Cultures list is a great celebration of companies that are doing it right, and should serve as inspiration for everyone who leads a team.”

“Becoming a Top Company Cultures winner isn’t something an organization can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement organizations have to work for. Based on our decade of research, we have come to view workplace culture is the only remaining sustainable competitive business advantage. Great strategies can be copied, but culture cannot.”
