Remember 2012? Seems so long ago, doesn’t it? Well we’ve got one last little bit of business left over from it to address: Oklahoma Magazine named QuiBids as one of its 27 Great Companies to Work For in 2012! We couldn’t be more excited to receive this huge honor. From OK Mag:
QuiBids is all about fun. Not only is it a fun and entertaining place to shop for its customers, it’s a fun work environment too. QuiBids cares for its employees by providing a great atmosphere to work in, which includes a game room set with a Ping-Pong table, Friday get-togethers, no dress code, massages, paid time for community service, employee trainings for professional development, discounted gym memberships, and much more. QuiBids is truly a new tech leader in the community, always striving for excellence in all that it does.
So what exactly was OK Mag’s criterion for determining its Great Companies to Work For in 2012? For starters, each businesses must be headquartered in Oklahoma, but according to the articles in its December issue, a thorough process proceeded from there, including:
-An online application process
-Consultation with “leading business interests and organizations in the state”
-The review of similar studies of Oklahoma employers
Who else made the cut?
Ever since the oil boom days, Oklahoma’s thrived on businesses operating in the energy sector, so that’s where many of the other Great Companies hail from. So here’s our shoutout to our cohorts in Oklahoma business!
-Stanfield & O’Dell
-The Bama Companies, Inc.
-Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company

OK Mag also set aside 10 companies for Ring of Honor distinction, as “sizable companies with lengthy histories of being great companies to work for, and which seem unlikely to face any major changes affecting that status.” We hope to keep building on our tradition of fun and excitement so that someday we too might be able to join this veritable hall of Oklahoma business fame that includes:
-Chesapeake Energy Corporation
