Sunset Cruise on The Woodwind

Annapolis is among the world’s most renowned sailing cities. This September, our team embarked from its harbor on The Woodwind—a 74-foot wooden schooner. We set sail for an evening cruise on the waters of the Chesapeake. Everyone enjoyed light refreshments, conversation, and even the chance to hoist sails and man the wheel. Captain Mickey and his crew made us feel very welcome, and the sunset was spectacular! Here are some photos from our memorable evening.


Clarity selected as a Baltimore Business Journal Best Places to Work 2017 Finalist

This spring, our team competed in the Baltimore Business Journal (BBJ) “Best Places to Work” contest. We had 100% participation—huge thanks to all of our employees for taking the time to answer questions about their experience working at Clarity. Each business that entered was scored from 0 to 100 based on employee responses to questions about their workplace. Clarity ranked in the top 10 in our size category, “Micro” (10 to 24 employees). The results showed engagement from all of our employees, who view their experience at Clarity as positive.

Our workplace described

The word that was most chosen to describe our work environment was challenging—in the best way. Our employees work on interesting projects that require analytical thinking, flexibility, and the ability to meet deadlines. Growth and development are part of the job. In that vein, engaging was also highly selected to describe our workplace. Other descriptors of note: interesting, supportive, and valued. In every survey completed, employees said that senior leaders at Clarity value people as most important to the success of the company.

Glowing feedback

Our culture is celebrated. We received 47 employee comments from the contest survey—all of them were positive. Here’s some of what our employees say about us:

Clarity is a great organization. I am respected, encouraged, and valued each and every day. Feedback is provided often, and the opportunities for growth are endless. T.J. (the leader of the organization) is generous, kind, and down-to-earth. There is no bureaucracy, and employees come first…compensation and benefits are top-notch.”

It is great to work among such talented people led by awesome owners who really care about their employees and continuously do things to remind them how much they’re appreciated.”

“I value the approach that Clarity looks for the right people with the right skills who have core values that align with the company’s as opposed to just filling a position with a body.”

 “I think the company does a good job of making me feel like I’m a part of a community even though we all work in many different locations.”

“The Clarity team is more than just…your place of work or your employer. The team atmosphere is built like a way of life—The Clarity way… We work hard and we play harder. A brand that is built around a work ethic, a work ethic that prides itself in going where, when, and how it is needed to get the job done. I’m proud to say that I’m part of the Clarity team.” 

“It is great to work among such talented people led by awesome owners who really care about their employees and continuously do things to remind them how much they’re appreciated.”

“I feel great about being part of Clarity. I don’t feel like a number, they treat all of their employees very well and as individuals, not just a group of employees. They get to know all their employees and consistently make sure they are happy. They went out of their way when I was trying to move positions and never held any information back. I was given many choices. They are proactive in trying to keep all the employees trained and their skills relevant to new technologies. I am always being asked if there are classes I want to take. It’s a company culture I try to let everyone know about.” 

“I enjoy being part of the Clarity team. Being a small business I feel more connected to the team, and you don’t feel like just a number like you do with larger companies. I also like that other employees are always willing to help and collaborate even if they are working on a different project. All the employees are very knowledgeable and that they are selective with who they hire and want to make sure that the person is not only a good fit for a position but also with the company culture.”

“I feel that Clarity welcomed me as a valuable member of their team rather than the next employee in line. Their benefits package is outstanding, and there are numerous company outings to baseball games, go-karting, and even sailing! Everyone at the company has been very friendly and personable. It really has been a joy working for Clarity for the last couple years.”

Stand-out Scores

Employees expressed full trust in leadership and feel favorable about communication and resources, having individual needs met, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, and team dynamics. We received high scores as a workplace in all areas.

In these five, our scores were perfect:

  • I am proud to work here.
  • The senior leaders of the organization value people as their most important resource.
  • The senior leaders of the organization demonstrate integrity.
  • Everyone here is treated fairly regardless of race, gender, age, ethnic background, disability, sexual orientation or other differences.
  • The people I work with treat each other with respect.
