SPRINGFIELD, MO, Dec. 17, 2021 — This week, Classy Llama, Springfield’s only full-service eCommerce agency, has earned places on two of Comparably.com’s top 50 lists: Best Companies for Women and Best CEO.

Best Companies for Women

This quarter, feedback from female employees to Comparably (a workplace ratings website) scored Classy Llama the #26 spot on the Best Company for Women (Small and Midsize Companies) list.

“I’ve been with Classy Llama almost six years now and it’s very different from just about anywhere I’ve worked. I’ve been in male-dominated industries my entire career and there has always been a level of disrespect toward me as a woman. But then I came to Classy Llama and I was allowed a seat at the table and my opinion mattered. To have that level of respect and care from your co-workers is huge, including other women. At Classy, you don’t feel unnecessary competitiveness with other women. Instead, we empower each other,” Ashlee Colliver, senior eCommerce strategist, said. 

Other employees at Classy Llama shared similar feelings about what it’s like to work for the company:

“I started as an Office Administrator and, five months later, here I am, promoted to a Project Manager position. I’ve had so many people pouring into me and fostering my growth. As someone who’s never done Project Management before, this was an awesome opportunity for me to grow into something new and I have had an amazing support system from both men and women here,” Leianna Pavon said. 

Best CEO

Classy Llama CEO Kurt Theobald also placed #35 on the Best CEO (Small and Midsize Companies) list

When asked how he felt about the accolade, Theobald redirected the focus to the employees who provided feedback: “I don’t care about accolades. I care about the hearts behind those accolades. If this award means I’m providing effective leadership to my employees, that’s what matters the most to me.”

An Award-Winning Company

These two most recent achievements bring Classy Llama’s workplace award total for 2021 to five wins, also including:

Comparably Awards are based on feedback provided by current employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com during a 12-month look-back period. Employees have the opportunity to answer up to 100 questions spanning nearly 20 different workplace topics. Each answer is given a numerical score and compared to companies of similar size. The final data set was compiled from 15 million ratings across 70,000 companies.
