“It’s a true honor to be named a finalist for Austin’s Best Places to Work,” said Matt Winebright, CEO and President of Hayes. “While there is a long list of reasons why I feel Hayes is an amazing place to work, the reality is our culture is driven by smart, energetic, and outstanding people. Being able to work in an environment with such talented people is inspiring.”
The Best Places to Work selection process was competitive and involved a questionnaire about work culture and company perks, as well as an anonymous employee feedback survey. Employees responded to questions measuring their attitudes across various themes including communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in leadership. Hayes is proud to be selected as the #16 Best Place to Work in the Small category.
Hayes strives to promote trust and a collaborative work environment – one that values what people with different perspectives bring to the table. By regularly conducting employee surveys, Hayes demonstrates they care about their employees having the opportunity to share opinions. The environment around the office at Hayes is creative, high-energy, and hardworking. Think scooters, nerf gun fights, happy hours, and putt-putt breaks. Hayes even has “Team Fun,” a group of employees who organize various office events including scavenger hunts, cooking contests, and monthly trivia contests.
“At Hayes, we truly understand there are two pieces to being one of the best places to work – a strong work ethic and the ability to have fun,” said one of Hayes’ employees, Javier Ayala. “Team Fun helps us have that blend with events ranging from cornhole tournaments to volunteering at a soup kitchen. That, and our community, is what makes me love coming to work at Hayes.”
