The relaxed attitude flows from the top at CIC Wealth.

"We are a very laid-back group," said Ryan Wibberley, founder and CEO.

"I'm that way I'm an open book," he said. "I talk to everyone about everything business-related. I ask for advice."

The example he sets ripples through the organization and encourages open dialogue among workers. There is a culture of openness and kindness, and every person is very approachable,, Mr. Wibberley said.

Employee reviews include a focus on thoughtfulness.

"One of the things we look at informally is 'What kinds of things have you done for a co-worker recently?' Such as buying someone lunch or flowers," Mr. Wibberley said. "We'd been doing random acts of kindness for clients for years, and that led us to treat each other the same way."

Viewing his role as one of serving employees as well as clients, he makes it a priority for his staff to review him, too.

The company bonus structure rewards employee ideas; 60% of the bonus is based on the employee's efforts to improve things in the organization, and 40% is based on company performance.

Do these policies make employees happy?

"All these things add up to a general feeling of 'Hey, the grass isn't greener over there,'" Mr. Wibberley said.
