The Northcoast 99 awards acknowledge those companies in Northeast Ohio that exhibit best practices in attracting, retaining and motivating top talent. Excelas president and founder Jean Bourgeois recognizes that engagement and retention are driven by more than just compensation and benefits. “It’s important to me that we provide an environment that allows staff to thrive,” said Bourgeois. “By focusing on work-life balance, wellness, community outreach, and staff development initiatives, we’ve been able to do that. And when our staff thrives, everybody wins—the company, the staff, and most importantly, our clients.” For Excelas, it’s about creating a workplace that emphasizes collaboration, flexibility and adaptability, where employees know that they’re heard and feel empowered to constantly improve processes.
