Snagajob hosts ‘The Great Workplace’ event for CEOs, HR professionals
Snagajob, named the number one Best Company to Work For in America in 2011, will host a special event for CEOs, senior HR professionals and senior company leaders on Wednesday, March 7 at Snagajob’s new office, 4851 Lake Brook Dr. in Innsbrook.
Dr. Jennifer Robin, co-author of “The Great Workplace: How to Build It, How to Keep it, Why it Matters,” and Shawn Boyer, founder and CEO of Snagajob, will lead a discussion on what it means to be a great place to work, including the bottom-line business impact. Robin has done extensive research into the best practices of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in America, and Snagajob has been on the Best Companies list for the past four years.
As part of the event, executives will have the opportunity to tour Snagajob’s new Innsbrook office. The building includes unique elements based on the company's core values, mission and goals. These range from fun conference room names to inspiring artwork to a kitchen with a brew pub and even a company slide allowing “Snaggers,” – Snagajob employees – a quick exit reminiscent of their playground days.
Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts soon will have a new access point to the Chickahominy River. VDOT, the James River Association and Henrico County Parks and Recreation are teaming up to establish a new site in Eastern Henrico.
The James River Association negotiated the deal with VDOT to procure official access to the area located just east of I-295 on North Airport Road in Sandston. The site includes a park-and-ride commuter lot bordering the Chickahominy River and has been an unofficial launch site used by paddlers for years. > Read more.
