Owings Mills, Maryland — EBI Inc. was named today as one of Baltimore’s Top Workplaces in the Baltimore Sun’s annual rankings.
This annual award highlights a select group of the top workplaces as voted by employees. Out of nearly 200,000 small business in Maryland, EBI is honored to be recognized on this exclusive list of the top 125.
EBI places a strong emphasis on creating a positive corporate culture. This commitment is evidenced most notably by its state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot facility, as well as its mission statement: “To be the happiest company… period. Only happy people deliver happy.” This mission statement was developed by a committee of EBI’s longest-tenured employees as testimony to the company’s unique and treasured culture.
Recently featured in the Baltimore Business Journal’s “Cool Digs,” EBI’s office was custom designed by Marti Kurland to focus on the needs of its employees first. Its micro food market promotes healthy food choices, and its learning center allows for uninterrupted new hire training and continual education for current employees. There are also specially designed alcoves throughout the office where employees can take a break and catch up over gourmet coffee. Numerous glass conference rooms and meeting spaces were thoughtfully designed to facilitate collaboration and interaction between departments.
“We believe strongly that a key to our success has been providing a comfortable, fun and productive work environment where our employees can perform at their highest possible levels,” said Rick Kurland, EBI’s CEO. “More than 25% of our staff has been here for 10 years or more. That’s amazing to me. When you create a place where people feel comfortable and love to work, it shines through in everything they do.”
EBI’s “Only Happy People Deliver Happy” mission statement has been proven out by the many accolades EBI has received this year. Besides being honored on the Baltimore Sun’s Top Workplaces List, EBI has been named to: Inc. 5000’s list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in the United States; HRO Today Magazine’s Pre-Employment Screening Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings for an unprecedented 10th time – more than any other screening firm; and Workforce Magazine’s “Hot List” of screening firms for the 11th consecutive year.
