Best Places to Work - Concepts & Associates

The number one company on the 2014 Best Places to Work list thrives with a Southern comfort, family feel.

Tim and Lynne Hennessy, the husband-and-wife team that heads up Birmingham, AL-based Concepts & Associates (asi/166235), have worked hard to cultivate a team of employees that care for, cover for – and eat good food with – each other. “If someone yells ‘help!’, everyone comes running,” says Kathy Herndon, who has been with the company seven years as a senior client relations manager. It’s just what Lynne wants to hear. “Every company says they are a team,” says Lynne. “We really are a team.”
