Written By Carol Marshall

“Your company doesn’t have a culture. It is a culture.”
- Simon Sinek

For 10 years, ActivEngage has provided the most trusted live chat service to automotive businesses around the world. We lead a diverse team of skilled and driven professionals united by a shared goal: helping our automotive clients build lasting relationships with their customers.  

But at ActivEngage, we don’t just provide a service focused on relationships. We've made it the foundation for how we work as a team, invest in our community, and value our staff. We are proud to have built and continue to build a staff that is proud to be on a world class team revolutionizing digital communication.

ActivEngage Recognized as a "Best Place to Work"

From day one, owners Ted Rubin and Todd Smith built ActivEngage to be an employee-focused company. They're firm believers that a successful company demands engaged employees and a culture that promotes innovation, quality, and responsibility. And thought it started with the co-founders, every single employee at ActivEngage contributes to making it a great place to work.

Recently, our co-founders had the pleasure of sharing ActivEngage’s story at the Best Place to Work Podcast with Mike Sudyk. They covered topics such as:

  • How and why ActivEngage was started 10 years ago
  • How the company has grown and evolved throughout the years
  • What the communication processes are like within the company
  • How our company culture has evolved and continues to change
  • Core leader advice on developing a unique company culture

As Molly Graham, former Culture Manager at Facebook, said in an interview, “your company’s story is the backbone on which everything else is founded.” ActivEngage’s story is a pretty interesting one -- and we’re still writing it. As our company continues to grow and evolve, we will continue innovating, learning, and refining. In the words of CEO, Todd Smith:

“Learn your culture, learn what drives you, and then learn to accelerate it. Every company is unique.”
