"Our organization has been successful for more than 35 years because of our investment in workplace culture," says Aaron Chernow, CEO of Resource. "Our traditions, like our company Thanksgiving dinner and summer picnics, have a direct impact on the bottom line." Resource offers the "standard" benefits, such as medical, dental, and vision insurance, but Resource also pays its employees two days a year to spend time on anything that helps them from a spiritual, emotional, and educational standpoint. In addition, Resource also recognizes its top performers. Those sales people that exceed targets by 20 percent or more get the CEO Club Award, which includes a four-day vacation anywhere in the U.S. "My wife and I took the first individual that won it to New York City," Chernow says. " We went and saw plays, we shopped, we ate—that's where they wanted to go. We had a great time in New York."
