Nexxtep Technology Services was recently named one of the ten best places to work in Georgia by Georgia Trend magazine.

We found the right people to fit into our company culture, people who want to be challenged and want to do whatever they can to serve their clients.

Nexxtep Technology Services, Inc., a technology consulting firm based in Valdosta, Georgia, has been named as one of the ten “Best Places to Work in Georgia” by Georgia Trend magazine. Georgia Trend is the largest statewide online and print business publication. From employee nominations submitted via their website, Georgia Trend’s editorial staff selected 10 companies whose employees consider them the best. Nexxtep is proud to be on the list.

Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Who does a small- to mid-size company call when technology questions rear their bewildering heads? If that company is in Valdosta or the surrounding south Georgia region, chances are they’ll call Nexxtep Technology Services.

Since its founding in 2002, Nexxtep has watched its growth curve climb steadily upward. 'We designed Nexxtep to offer premium service not available in this part of Georgia,' says Stuart Avera, vice president of Nexxtep. 'Then we found the right people to fit into our company culture, people who want to be challenged and want to do whatever they can to serve their clients.'

Selecting the right people remains a high priority at Nexxtep. Avera, along with the three other founding partners, Paul Nichols, Ryan Williams and Bart Shiver, play an active role in interviewing and hiring new employees and expect current employees to weigh in on how well they believe a potential employee will fit in. Avera says employee feedback created several initiatives, allotting funds for client appreciation and ongoing surveys measuring client satisfaction, that have played a role in promoting overall customer satisfaction and company growth.

Avera believes asking for input strengthens the management/employee relationship and increases employee buy-in. Anne Shenton, director of marketing, agrees. 'Most employees have been here for three years or more, which is unheard of in a consulting firm where almost everyone is under the age of 40,' she says. 'Why do we stay? Not for the money, although the salaries are competitive. We stay because we know we’re truly valued and respected.'"
