A lot of it comes down to a lack of upward mobility. A lot of companies, and industries, place artificial ceilings on employees that prohibit them from moving up. It’s important to give people the opportunity to prove themselves and let them find their own ceiling based on their performance. We also spend so much of our time at work, so if you aren’t happy at work you won’t be happy overall.

As a part of my series about how leaders can create a “fantastic work culture”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jason Cohen and Brett Cravatt, Co-Founders and Co-CEOs of Centerfield, a digital customer acquisition company headquartered in Playa Vista, CA. Originally from New York, Jason is a recognized leader in the interactive marketing industry. He began his career working for a well-known ad network and worked his way up to become the company’s top global sales representative before leaving to start his own company. California native Brett left his promising law career to pursue his true passion for entrepreneurship. A seasoned entrepreneur, he has founded and served on the boards of multiple successful companies. The two decided to build Centerfield one night after a few too many beers. After Jason invested in one of Brett’s previous businesses, Brett suggested the possibility of joining forces to build a powerhouse media company. A week later and with a clearer head, Brett followed up and the rest is history.
