SPINX NAMED ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN S.C.
Greenville, S.C. – June 17, 2021 – The Spinx Company, the Greenville S.C.-based fuel and convenience retail company with more than 80 locations, 45 car washes and 1,500 associates statewide was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The ranked companies will be recognized at a reception, presented by Colonial Life on August 5, 2021, at the Columbia Convention Center and the rankings will be published in the August 2021 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
The S.C. Chamber, the publishers of SCBIZ, and the Best Companies Group join each year to produce the Best Places to Work in South Carolina program. This initiative is dedicated to identifying and recognizing South Carolina’s most innovative and top-notch employers. Those companies selected as “Best Places to Work” are recognized and honored during a reception and dinner held annually in August. The award is open to all South Carolina for-profit and not-for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in South Carolina.
“We are honored and delighted to be recognized again by our State’s Chamber as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina,” said Stan Storti, Spinx President. “We’re a 48-year-old company that is committed to continuous improvement and since becoming president six years ago, we’ve been hyper focused on improving our culture. We’re also incredibly fortunate that our ownership, the Spinks family, has always put people first. Both within and outside of the business. Organizationally, we just didn’t have the tools to harness our owner’s intent into a system to find value and purpose aligned people, but we have that now! Six years ago, we put a plan in place to discover the essence of who we are and what our unique purpose is as a company. Since then, we’ve been building practices and rewards around our core values and core purpose to find, keep, develop and promote people who share our values and purpose. It’s a simple concept, but one of the hardest things in business to achieve! We’ve embraced the idea that in order to make the leap from good to great, there are certain things we MUST never stop doing and the most important thing among them is to always improve the way we lead and treat our teammates. As leaders, making our teammates lives better is truly the only way we can make our guests’ lives easier and after all, at Spinx, that’s why we exist.”
