The company he started back in 1976 began humbly, located a short commute away, just a few steps down the stairs to the office he had set up in his basement. Seed money? One thousand dollars from the sale of his motorcycle. Employees? Just two: one wife and one 3-year-old daughter, both of whom helped with the phones. Deliveries from those calls were made in the back of the family station wagon.

Today that company enjoys high annual sales, and its 600 workers look forward to perks that include free, fresh-brewed coffee, quality cafeteria food, a bocce ball court, a soccer field, massage rooms, a golf driving range — and a nap room.
