Our goal = great place to work. And at the heart of our culture is our respect for each other. Brilliant minds and strong work ethic inspires a culture of appreciation, and we’re happy to say that you’ll find that here. And all that feeling respected and appreciated spurs us to roll up our sleeves and get down to business, but you’ll likely find us cracking jokes and – all right, having some fun – while we do it.
We’re a group of busy adults, and we treat each other like busy adults. We’re going all out ⎼ and winning ⎼ the battle of work-life balance. With our remote structure and results-oriented work environment, flexibility is part of our cultural DNA. We can work wherever our laptops take us. Don’t get us wrong, we work up a sweat along with the rest of them, but we’ve picked the locks and are not shackled to our desks while we do it. And it makes for a nice environment – some might even say – great.
You want enthusiasm? You got it. Commitment? We bring it. Integrity? In spades. Grace? We are graceful, so graceful. In fact, this is the secret of our success (shhh) and our internal mission statement. We try to incorporate these four elements into every day. And just to make it fun we all vie to be the most committed, have the most integrity, the most…well, you get it. And we like to notice and celebrate when we do. Bringing these things into your work makes you a hero in our book. Ever wonder how much commitment can fit into one room? You’d be surprised. We’ve set the world record over here.
These two were named our Heroes of the year. They’ve set the bar high for next year.
Here’s the thing about Courtney Cruikshank: she’s a delight. She’s got that “do-anything-it takes” thing and that “I’ll-help-any-way-I-can thing,” she’s almost un-rattle-able, and she’s super-knowledgeable about her job. When you work with her on something you find yourself looking around for one of those Staples Easy Buttons to press. (So easy.)
Luciana Halliday Nofal is a lot like Superwoman. With all the powers, stamina, and strategy of any Superhero, Lu’s commitment to the company’s strength and growth is well, mighty. She takes on whateverneeds taking on, leads us all against any challenge, and inspires us daily. KaPow!

Sanova Gives Back
Using our Powers for Good
SanovaWorks believes in contributing to the greater good. We are grateful for the opportunities we’ve been given, and we’re dedicated to giving back to the community and causes near and dear to our hearts. We believe it’s part of being human and making the world a better place.
Annual Volunteer Month
What began as our annual volunteer day in 2013, has since evolved into SanovaWorks Volunteer Month. We dedicate the month of October as a way for us to work as one team, regardless of our location. For this month of service, SanovaWorks staffers are given an opportunity to participate at a volunteer program in their community. Groups of NYC-based staff often band together to help out at the Bowery Mission and One Sandwich At A Time, and our team members dispersed around the map participate in programs of their choice. Together we spend time, serving, helping, rolling up our sleeves, and getting our hands dirty (often literally). From blood donation centers, to animal shelters, to food bank programs, we’re all just happy to chip in.
One Sandwich At A Time
In 2015, we’re working with One Sandwich At A Time on their mission to feed the homeless and underfed. SanovaWorks staffers are donating their time to make sandwiches that are delivered to New York based shelters and distribution centers, where there is immediate impact for those that need it the most.
Why do we love helping out at the Bowery Mission? They not only provide help to those in need, but a way for people to help themselves. Their transitional program offers true-life transformation opportunities, and allows participants to get back on their feet, providing the ultimate reward – giving them back their self-reliance and independence. We’re grateful to have been able to help out at meal service several times now, and look forward to doing it again – preparing and serving lunch to New Yorkers in need, and having the opportunity to meet and work with their amazing staff.
Morris Heights Health Center
The Morris Heights Reach Out and Read program promotes literacy in children, helping them to develop the academic and social skills to succeed. SanovaWorks supports these efforts with employee-donated books that are read to children in patient waiting areas and given to them at their well-child visits. SanovaWorks also holds an annual coat, book, and toy drive to donate to the center for children that need them.
SanovaWorks is proud to partner with American Forests, as a Sequoia Circle member, committed to ensuring that the countless environmental and societal benefits that forests provide to humans and all living things are protected for the future. With our annual gift, American Forests will continue and expand its work to protect and restore forests by:
- Purchasing 1,000 seedlings to restore four acres of rural forest and create critical wildlife habitat
- Securing 10 trees, six to eight feet tall, to plant along a city street to provide shade for the community
- Purchasing and hanging approximately 70 pheromone patches to help protect mountain forests against destructive insects
