RealTick, a financial software developing company, is known for providing industrial and retail brokerage firms with dependable trading software. The company has been helping its clients achieve great success since the mid-80s.
In addition to developing and maintaining much of the industry’s most valued software, RealTick has provided a large number of Generation Y employees with flexible job opportunities. According to RealTick Chief Executive Officer Stuart Breslow, providing a clear path for their employee’s upward mobility is one of RealTick’s greatest strengths. Breslow says that because of these opportunities, the company’s Gen Y population works even harder to attain these incentives.
Breslow notes, “Generation Y employees have brought a new level of innovation and challenge and spirit to the workforce in general.”
With this new energetic spirit, young professionals have also brought a great deal of success to RealTick. This young go-getting generation is partially responsible for the impressive list of industry awards RealTick continues to earn.
Winning these awards requires extremely hard work and this hard work is rewarded internally as well. One unique way in which RealTick rewards their high achievers is by supplying these standout employees with extra vacation time to celebrate their success. In addition to this, RealTick offers other Gen Y-focused incentives that make the company an awesome place to work.
Procurement Manager Mark Wagner says, “Being a technology company has some nice perks as well. We’re very forward thinking. I’ve had an iPhone that’s partly reimbursed from the company… Having that level of technology at your fingertips is really cool.”
Maybe it is these perks that keep RealTick’s Gen Y employees motivated. Maybe it is the challenge of helping their software clients conquer an unstable market. Maybe it is simply an inherent pervasive Gen Y mentality that drives these young professionals to do such phenomenal work. Whatever the case may be, the management at RealTick seems to have figured out how to consistently draw great things from their youngest staffers.
