Alamo, Calif. (PRWEB) April 15, 2010
Brainpark.com, a leading developer of enterprise social networking software and project collaboration tools, is pleased to announce their inclusion in the 2010 WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces. Brainpark is one of 44 companies chosen and this is the second consecutive year they have been included on this list.
The WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces is a global list recognizing and honoring organizations that operate democratically. It is a list, not a ranking, and is announced on an annual basis. The purpose of the list is to honor companies that champion organizational democracy and freedom in the workplace.
“Being listed in this WorldBlu group is an honor and hats off to Traci and the team for pulling together such an outstanding group of companies and leaders,” says Mark Dowds, Brainpark’s CEO.
Organizations from the for-profit, non-profit and government sectors that have been in operation for at least one full year and have at least five employees can apply for the WorldBlu award. To be eligible, employees throughout an organization complete a survey using the online WorldBlu Democratic Workplace Scorecard™. The WorldBlu Scorecard evaluates an organization according to ten principles of organizational democracy, such as transparency and accountability.
Brainpark’s work philosophy is reflected in the products they develop and sell, making them a prime candidate for WorldBlu’s list. “The WorldBlu List standard is extremely high - not all companies that applied or who were on last year’s list were awarded this year” said Traci Fenton, CEO and founder of WorldBlu. “Democratic organizations are much more than great places to work. They have been designed to operate with a freedom-centric approach to business – an approach that is unique and progressive, but also highly practical and relevant in today’s dynamic, ever-changing business environment. Brainpark exemplifies this type of organization both inside and out, from their internal operations to the product they sell that promotes the democratic model to their customers.”
