EYE-Q Vision Care was named as one of the top 20 “Best Companies to Work For” in The Business Journal’s 2015 Best of Central Valley Business Reader’s Choice Awards. The Business Journal introduced the Reader’s Choice Awards last year, encouraging the business community to choose their favorite companies, people and places. Readers were asked to vote on 30 categories ranging from the “Best Company to Work For” to the “Best Politician” to the “Best Golf Course to Take a Client”.
This award comes as no surprise to EYE-Q employees, as this leading eye care provider truly believes in going the extra mile for its team. When asked, Julie Cleeland, CEO of EYE-Q stated, “If you ask our employees why EYE-Q is the best company to work for, they’ll tell you it’s because they’re treated well.”
While many other medical offices have cut back on employee benefits, paid time off, sick time, and paid holidays, EYE-Q has stayed committed to providing these important family benefits for employees. They are dedicated to creating a supportive environment for their employees both inside and outside of the office. The staff is regularly treated to BBQs, movie nights, special events and offsite activities that strengthen co-worker bonds and foster a spirit of teamwork inside the workplace.
EYE-Q also believes in empowering its employees and encourages continuing education and career development. Cleeland stated, “We have growth opportunities for staff members who are interested. With over 200 employees, we’re large enough to offer opportunities for career advancement but still small enough so that it feels like a “work family”.
The staff takes great pride in being associated with EYE-Q. As one of the leading eye care providers in the Central Valley since 1956, EYE-Q represents strength and stability. They have grown with the community and adjusted to the health care needs of the people.
Danny Santos has worked at EYE-Q for over 15 years. He loves the environment and is proud of the fact that he works at EYE-Q. Danny has seen the facility grow from a small office to one of the leading eye care providers in the Valley. “Over the years, I’ve developed a lot of respect for the doctors and staff here at EYE-Q. Everyone works together and shares knowledge. I think we offer the best patient care around. We’ve got specialists to treat all types of eye problems.” Santos continued, “I always tell my friends and family that it’s a great place to work. We’re like one big family.”
