NEW ALBANY, IN – SmartBox Web Marketing, one of the country’s fastest-growing private companies and a local “Best Places to Work” winner last year, is bringing Silicon Valley-style employee policies to the Louisville metropolitan area.
The New Albany-based dental web marketing agency is investing in its company culture through sweeping policy changes that give employees unlimited paid time off, requires them to take time off work, and provides financial transition benefits if they decide to leave the company.
“Our company has expanded its services and client base, and added amazing new employees as we grew our profits to record numbers,” said Colin Receveur, SmartBox Web Marketing founder and CEO. “The employees are the heartbeat of our company, and we want to provide a culture that empowers every team member and attracts the brightest minds in digital marketing.”
Receveur and the management team at SmartBox Web Marketing unveiled the new policies earlier this year. The benefits include:
- Unlimited paid time off to salaried employees.
- Expanded paid time off to hourly employees.
- Required two weeks minimum of vacation a year.
- “SmartFit” Employment Guarantee, which provides generous severance packages to departing team members in good standing who are no longer a good fit for their job. The SmartFit Employment Guarantee also gives recently-hired team members the chance to depart with a month’s wages if they feel SmartBox Web Marketing is not the “smart fit” for them.
“First and foremost, I want everyone at SmartBox Web Marketing to have a healthy work-life balance,” Receveur said. “Secondly, it’s about building a positive company culture that reflects our progressive and innovative business model. A lot of West Coast tech companies are succeeding using this model.”
Receveur said the new plans ensure that SmartBox Web Marketing has the “smart fit” and is rewarding its employees. Receveur began setting the foundation for these changes in 2014 when he added numerous full-time positions.
“Some companies might chatter about enhancing company culture, but those of us at Smartbox Web Marketing were dedicated to putting this talk into action,” Receveur said. “Every team member takes ownership in their roles with the company, so it’s gratifying to reward and inspire them as we build upon our business.”
SmartBox Web Marketing, founded in 2001, works with more than 500 dentists across the country to provide more and better patients. The company was included in the 2016 Inc. 500 list, which ranks the fastest-growing private companies around the country. SmartBox Web Marketing was listed as 259th in the nation and 18th out of all marketing companies.

He has been featured in numerous dental publications, including Dental Economics magazine’s Dentistry IQ Video series and on the cover of The Profitable Dentist.
