Leadr Inc. has been recognized as #4 on the list of the 2023 Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas by The Dallas Morning News, and CEO, Matt Tresidder was awarded “Best CEO” in the Small Business category.
The Dallas Morning News’ Top 100 Places To Work is run by research partner, Energage, and is predicated on an extensive employee survey that celebrates excellence in areas such as company leadership, compensation, training, workplace flexibility, diversity, and more.
In 2022, the 14th year for the Top 100 awards in D-FW, a record-breaking number of nearly 6,000 deserving companies were nominated and more than 156,000 employees were surveyed.
Leadr’s mission is to develop 1M leaders by investing in the growth and development of every employee. The $5 Million start-up set out in 2019 to create a software that could serve as a one-stop-shop for all people-focused efforts.
Co-Founders Matt Tresidder and Chris Heaslip believed that good leadership throughout an organization was possible with the right tools, and believed Leadr was the platform that could create a people-first culture.
The 5 Foundations of Award-Winning Teams
Leadr is built on 5 foundations that drive their own award-winning culture. These 5 foundations are that every employee:
Has 1:1 meetings with their manager at least bi-weekly
Understands and recognizes their unique strengths.
Receives frequent feedback from their manager.
Has clearly documented goals.
Has a personalized growth / development plan.
These aren’t just principals the Leadr team has written on their walls (although they do). It’s the culture they themselves practice day to day.
Matt Tresidder shared, “It’s better to believe the best in someone and be proved wrong than to believe the worst in someone and be proved right.”
Making it onto the list of Best Places to Work in Dallas is an elite honor that puts power behind Leadr’s mission by showing the kind of culture that can be achieved when you put your people first.
