IT Consulting Firm Receives Highest Honors for Workplace Culture and Employee Appreciation

We appreciate our talented and dedicated employees, and we’re grateful for being recognized for our efforts to facilitate their success and development.

OpenSky Corporation, an IT consulting firm with industry-leading expertise in Infrastructure; IT Risk Management and Security; Governance, Risk and Compliance; and Technical Business Consulting, today announced that it has been named Top Workplace in the Small Business division in Connecticut. In addition, OpenSky was honored as the company where employees feel “Most Appreciated”.

Workplace Dynamics, a national surveying firm, conducted a confidential survey of 793 companies. The survey solicited responses on six workplace factors, including Direction, Conditions, Career, Execution, Managers, and Pay and Benefits. 19,452 employee surveys were completed and from those results, 45 companies were named to the 2011 Top Workplaces in Connecticut list. OpenSky was ranked first or second in five of the six categories, and was fourth in Pay and Benefit, for small businesses. These exceptional results led to OpenSky’s win in its category.

"Workplace Dynamics has conducted surveys with over 3,000 companies this year, and I very rarely see a company receive so many first place assessments," said Marissa Winter, Manager of Client Services at Workplace Dynamics LLP. "OpenSky's top results in more than half of the categories surveyed are a testament to the engaging culture that they've fostered."

OpenSky was founded in 2007 by five IT consulting veterans to serve the needs of large corporations requiring expert IT consulting support. The company has experienced rapid growth in its employee base since launching, opening five offices across the country to service clients as well as vetting and hiring over 100 employees and 750 independent consultants to staff projects.

“We appreciate our talented and dedicated employees, and we’re grateful for being recognized for our efforts to facilitate their success and development,” said Roger Levasseur, President and CEO. “Our consultants have over a decade of IT and relevant industry experience, and we need to provide them with the challenge of working with top clients and projects as well as offer the appropriate level of support and recognition.”

This award recognizes OpenSky's accomplishments in creating a workplace that gives its employees the tools to develop professionally, contribute to the company's success, and fully utilize their individual talents. OpenSky was also distinguished as receiving feedback from employees feeling "Most Appreciated."

Employees shared the following about working at OpenSky:

  •     "I have the opportunity to work with and collaborate with some of the most seasoned individuals in the field. I am getting experience in technologies that I feel I would never get working elsewhere."
  •     "Senior managers at OpenSky are always open to new ideas. I feel encouraged and empowered to act independently. Ideas and suggestions that are offered up to management are always considered valuable."
  •     "I feel very much appreciated at OpenSky…I really like the open structure at OpenSky - people are leveraged for the talents they have. Last, but definitely not least, there is a genuine care and concern for people at OpenSky."

"Our employees are our greatest asset - they're the driving force behind our growth and relationships," said Tom Hazen, CIO of OpenSky. "We try to do the right thing for our clients, partners and especially our employees at all times. When it comes to our employees and consultants, we strive to reward their hard work and commitment to the company, and we're honored to receive this recognition."
