TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored ReliaQuest, a leading provider of IT security solutions, as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Technology. The ranking considered more than 79,000 employee surveys from technology companies across the U.S.

Great Place to Work, a nationally regarded research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of employee and workplace excellence. These included communication practices, professional development opportunities, innovation focus, as well as diversity in the workplace. ReliaQuest took the No. 16 spot on the list for medium businesses.

“What makes ReliaQuest a great place to work is the mindset of our team. More than any technological expertise, it’s the willingness to continue learning, continue growing and continue embracing challenges that allow our people to keep pushing the security industry forward,” said ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy. “We are grateful for the recognition this award brings to those talented individuals and the advanced enterprise security teams we work alongside every day.”

The Best Workplaces in Technology stand out for their consistent leadership and the meaningful ways that all employees experience innovation in the workplace. Winning companies scored 15 percent higher than non-winners on measures of a culture of innovation.

“The Best Workplaces in Technology know that innovation can’t be limited to just engineers or senior employees,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Creating opportunities where everyone experiences innovation in the workplace increases the sense of fairness, purpose, and confidence.”
