Florida Trend’s Best Companies To Work For In Florida

Market Traders Institute Named a Best Company to Work For in Florida in 2016

award1ORLANDO, Fla. (August 4, 2016) – Boasting a focused business philosophy, casual work environment, free snacks and drinks and clear-cut company values of working hard and doing the right thing, Market Traders Institute (MTI) has been awarded as one of Florida Trend’s 2016 Best Companies to Work For in Florida.

“After winning in 2015, it makes me so proud to be a Best Company to Work For in Florida once again,” says Jared Martinez, CEO and founder of MTI. “We have worked very hard to make MTI a place where our employees can feel at home. Showing your employees you care about them as people goes a long way to getting the best out of them as workers.”

Companies that chose to participate in the contest underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. MTI ranked 16th out of 30 in the midsize company category.

“Top companies provide excellent pay, health insurance, 401k plans, and other “hard” benefits, but they also offer the leadership and communications that encourage employees to participate in the organization’s overall success,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty.

Market Traders Institute features company paid insurance benefits, company matched 401(k), free snacks and drinks, free breakfast on Fridays, food trucks every Wednesday and company sponsored events such as happy hours, cubicle decorating contests and raffles.

“I’ve worked at places before where coming into work felt like a chore,” says Weston Nunemaker, an employee who’s been with the company for a little under a year. “But at MTI I know I’m at a company that cares about me and values the work I do. And getting some free breakfast doesn’t hurt either.”  

As happy as Jared Martinez is about the award, he isn’t planning on stopping any time soon. “We’ll be back next year,” he says.
