Flexera Named a 2017 Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune
Workplace Culture Recognized for the Fifth Year
Itasca, IL - November 21, 2017 Flexera, the company that’s reimagining how software is bought, sold, managed and secured, today announced it’s been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Chicago Tribune for the fifth year. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.
Employees completed a confidential survey about workplace culture, and the results were compared to responses from other companies in the bustling Chicago economy. Several aspects were measured -- including Company Direction, Execution, Connection and Alignment. A numerical value was attached to each statement, creating an overall score for each company.
“We’re incredibly honored to be named a Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune for the fifth time. This award carries enormous meaning, because we were judged by those that know us best – our talented employees,” said Jim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer at Flexera. “Maintaining a winning culture is extremely important to us, because our employees are the very essence of our success. We’ll take this amazing energy into next year, and continue to make Flexera a great place to work.”
Flexera’s created a strong workplace built on key values – including Accountability, Professionalism, Transparency and Innovation. Flexera strongly celebrates and promotes the success of its employees in their personal and professional lives, and actively works to better communities where employees live and work through ongoing charity efforts. Flexera’s a blend of over 1,200 people around the world, who’ve joined the team from a variety of backgrounds from large, global companies to small startups. Together, Flexera forms a unique collection of talents, experiences and products – all working towards a common goal of repairing the dysfunctional software supply chain.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day – the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone’s in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
