Perks and Programs

We asked Spotlight | Analyst Relations to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Yoga: Spotlight provides a weekly yoga class in our office, taught by an experienced yoga instructor who adapts each session to the participants’ interests and experience.
  • Free lunches: Spotlight encourages employees to go out to eat with others from the company. When this happens, Spotlight reimburses the employees for their lunch. This is a way for Spotlight to encourage camaraderie between employees, and also helps the employees save money.
  • Annual Spotlight Birthday Party: To celebrate Spotlight’s birthday each year, we host an event for employees and their significant others. Past birthday party locations include a whisky distillery, a golf tournament, and a local brewery.
  • In-office shower: Encourages employees to exercise before work or over lunch.
  • Corporate Challenge: Corporate Challenge is an annual competition among Kansas City-area companies in a variety of sporting events. Spotlight’s participation fosters internal camaraderie and collaboration with other like-minded companies in the area.
  • Forced Fun: We kick off each new quarter with a half-day all-hands meeting, then spend the latter half of the day in a group activity. Past examples include laser tag, go karts, whirly-ball, Top Golf driving range, scavenger hunts, and Kansas City Royals baseball games.
  • Volunteering: Spotlight has a Philanthropy Team who drives the volunteering that Spotlight does. Every employee has committed to spending 1% of their working time for philanthropy purposes.
  • Spotlightee Awards: Each year, an internal shenanigans committee creates “Spotlightee” awards for all employees, in recognition of exceptionally fun and/or ridiculous behavior.

How to Get Hired

We asked Spotlight | Analyst Relations for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

At Spotlight, we know we can teach a new employee how to execute our unique methodology for analyst relations. What we can’t teach are the skills and traits of personable, curious, charismatic, self-driven, and continuously improving employees. Our interviews and hiring process look for such characteristics. We especially ask questions that tie to our four core values (Honorable, Collaborative, Persistent, Kavorka.)

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Prospective employees should have a proven track record of winning, humble curiosity to learn, and self-motivated work ethic.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Client-facing roles (Client Partner, Client Executive)

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Interested candidates should go to our website to learn more and apply. If there aren't any open positions, they should reach out to Rick Nash or Jennifer Sheffield.
