TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — ReliaQuest, a leading provider of IT security solutions, was named one of the 2017 Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine. This honor recognizes ReliaQuest’s commitment to building a strong culture that can sustain the company’s rapid growth.
This ranking considered 74,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. ReliaQuest earned a spot on this list based on employees’ assessments of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace. ReliaQuest ranked 63rd among the 100 winning medium organizations.
“It’s exciting that ReliaQuest is known as somewhere talented individuals can come to learn, grow and build a career that they’re proud of,” said ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy. “This is the driving force behind ReliaQuest’s success: our talented team members and the willingness to keep asking ourselves: ‘How good can we be?'”
Given the company’s rapid growth and global impact, it is vital that ReliaQuest’s employees remain connected, supported, and aligned with the company’s direction. ReliaQuest has invested significant time, energy and resources into employee-development programs, such as its continuous training through ReliaQuest University. ReliaQuest’s positive culture helps the company maintain an employee retention rate above 90 percent – a metric that is increasingly important as the IT security industry grows and evolves.
Outstanding employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
“The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on research into employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
ReliaQuest has been consistently honored for its positive workplace and commitment to its positive company culture. In August, ReliaQuest was certified as a national “Great Place to Work,” with a 95 percent workplace satisfaction rate among its growing ranks of highly sought-after IT security professionals. In September, ReliaQuest was a bronze winner for the 2017 Stevie Awards for Great Employers.
About the Best Medium Workplaces ranking
The ranking was based on anonymous feedback from more than 74,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Employees completed a Trust Index™ survey with more than 50 questions assessing pride, camaraderie, executive effectiveness, innovation, benefits, professional development and other elements of a great workplace. Scores also considered organizations’ performance relative to their size and industry, as well as their ability to provide a great workplace for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do. Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level. Organizations with 10 to 99 employees were considered for the small workplaces list and those with 100-999 employees were considered for the medium list.
