Provo, Utah-based Aptive Environmental was the recipient of three awards this summer in its home state:
- the 13th Fastest Growing Company by Utah Valley Business Q Magazine
- among the “Emerging Elite” by MountainWest Capital Network
- among the “Emerging Companies” by Utah Business Magazine
The five-year-old firm also announced it had a record-breaking summer for revenue.
“There’s no denying that 2020 has presented businesses, consumers and families across the globe with challenges unlike any other, which is just one reason why these home-state awards and our success to-date is so rewarding,” CEO Vess Pearson said in a news release.
This summer, Aptive launched its #AptiveStrong program. Challenging its more than 3,700 team members to everything from ice-cold river sits, to running 100 miles in 24 hours and more, the initiative instilled a confidence in employees that resulted in loyalty and motivation: In October, Aptive reported a 17 percent year-over-year increase in sales per representative.
