"We want to be a place of empowerment for employees, customers and partners," says Eric Leighton, founder and CEO, of LoadSpring Solutions. Established with a written list of core values that each employee must know and keep, Leighton says he's dedicated to keeping his company's identity intact while it expands. Taking care of his employees is one way to do that. How: giving employees who've been there for two years or longer $5,000 and an additional week of vacation to travel abroad. "It sends a message to all new hires and employees in the company that we care about you and want you to get out and see the United States from another vantage point," he says.
