In 2022, The Spinx Co. ranked No. 1 on the Best Places to Work in South Carolina by Best Companies Group for companies with 250 or more employees.

While certainly proud of that recognition, Riad Leilo says the past two years have been challenging for Spinx on multiple fronts, “the most important being finding the right fit for our culture while meeting the demand of employee turnover.”

To work through it, the retailer leaned heavily on company culture.

“We interviewed our top teammates, identified the ideal Spinx candidate, and put a process in place to hire the right fit for our culture,” he says. “At Spinx, our teammates are at the center of everything we do, and continuing to put our people first will continue solidifying our unique culture ... We are fully vested in making our teammates’ and guests’ lives easier by selecting, hiring and retaining the right candidate the first time.”
