National Franchisor Takes Home the Gold Stevie Award + Entrepreneur Magazine for Top Company Culture Award
Wilmington, NC, October 12, 2018 --( Award-winning N2 Publishing has achieved honorable company-wide success again. They were recently recognized with two prestigious awards: Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Company Culture and The Stevie® Awards for Great Employers. Previously named on award lists Inc. 5000 (eight years in a row), Fortune’s Best Companies to Work For, and Entrepreneur’s Fastest Growing Franchises and many more, N2 comes from humble beginnings with the goal of offering its people a fantastic work-life balance and supportive team member environment.

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. With more than 50 professionals as judges and over 500 entries, N2 Publishing was awarded Gold for their focus on maintaining workplace happiness and a drive to do good with their giving program, N2GIVES, in the fight against human trafficking.

The judges raved over N2’s Service Profit Chain, well-written Culture Deck, and “fact that the company has a sustainable talent strategy and it values internal promotion with a striking 95% of the managerial roles filled via internal promotion.” With a First-Time Home Buyer Program and donations of over $5 million to fight human trafficking through N2GIVES, it’s hard to not see the radiating glow from N2 deserving of a Gold Stevie® to match.

This isn’t the first time N2 has been awarded by Entrepreneur for Top Company Culture, either. Last year Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur, said "Great company cultures don’t happen on their own," and N2 agrees. It can’t be said better than N2’s CEO Duane Hixon: "[Winning awards is] always encouraging and reason to pause for a moment to celebrate, but then we quickly get back to work because we have a lot we want to accomplish as a team.”
