SEP staff were elated by the rankings according to Jeff Quipp, founder and CEO of Search Engine People Inc. "This is validation that our Win-Win-Win philosophy is working." SEP's Win-Win-Win philosophy refers to the idea that (1) clients have to win (2) SEP employees have to win, and (3) that SEP itself has to win. SEP feels that only by aligning the goals of each group, can long term relationships truly be forged and maintained, something critical to business success going forward. "The August SEO and PPC rankings by is a very strong indication that SEP clients feel they are winning out of the relationship" says Quipp. "At the same time, being ranked as One of the 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada in 2008 and 2009 is an indication that the company and its people are also winning."
