DMC Atlanta is honored to be among a select group of elite companies voted as the Best & Brightest to work for, both in Atlanta AND nationwide. These accolades bring great pride and sentiment, as we look at how far we have grown as an organization in our 15 years. Our team, most importantly, deserves all the recognition (and then some!) for the effort they put in every single day. Having their efforts recognized through these awards is humbling for everyone - and of course, a reason for a few bragging rights!

Being awarded with such an honor definitely makes us even more determined to keep going and keep GROWING!! We have big goals and we know they are not going to achieve themselves, so don’t expect a slowdown from DMC Atlanta anytime soon! Our focus moving forward will be to continue expanding and developing our team while exceeding our client standards.

Since we are a people helping people business, we wanted to share a few tips that we feel landed us a spot on the list of the 101 Best & Brightest companies in the nation and Atlanta's 2018 Best & Brightest!

Be GENUINE - the team at DMC Atlanta is comprised of people who genuinely care about the people surrounding them. They love helping others achieve their goals equally as much as they enjoy achieving their own. A genuine smile or word of encouragement can go a long way in someone’s growth, development and confidence!

Be PASSIONATE - going along with the previous point, our team is genuinely passionate about their opportunity for growth. It's a characteristic that flows throughout DMC Atlanta, from the management team through the HR team, right into our leadership team. We love what we do, the people we do it with, and the clients and customers we do it for!

Be YOU! - most importantly, be yourself at work! There's no other you out there, so always give it your best. We strive to help each of our team members find their strengths and utilize them to the best of their ability, while also working in the areas they want to improve on. We know that by doing this, their confidence will skyrocket!

Don't forget to HAVE FUN! – we work hard so we can reward our team! Whether it's Top Golf with happy hour after work or taking a pacesetter in our company on a business trip cross-country, enjoying what we do and incentivizing our team drives our performance higher. Receiving these 2 awards this year proves to us that adding a little fun to the mix is a win-win for everyone involved. Those who are appreciated – and laughing – will go above and beyond expectations!

Making sure our team understands the importance of these qualities is what led us to the top. We hope these 4 tips give each of our followers some insight on how to be the Best & Brightest in everything they do. Congratulations to every single member of the DMC Atlanta team that contributed to these honorable mentions! Let's do it all over again this year!
