Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 23, 2011
Knight Point Systems, a leading IT service provider, announces that is has been named one of the 50 Great Places to Work in the Washington, DC area by Washingtonian Magazine. The winners were chosen after a panel of editors and writers reviewed company submittals and more than 13,000 employee surveys. The final determinations relied heavily on the scores given by a company's employees.
This is the seventh time The Washingtonian magazine has chosen Great Places to Work in the Washington, DC area. The feature dates back to 1999 and is published every other year. The top 50 companies are awarded based on measures such as, generous pay and benefits, challenging and interesting work, great work/life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees. The winning workplaces are profiled in the November 2011 issue of Washingtonian magazine, which is now available on newsstands.
“We are proud to be honored as one of Washington’s great places to work,” said Bob Eisiminger, Knight Point’s Chief Executive Officer. “This award is a reflection of Knight Point’s culture and core values: Candor, Competence, Commitment, and Confidence. We are excited to be recognized for our dedication to the company well-being and to our employees. It is truly an honor to be amongst some of the most forward-thinking companies in the area.”
Knight Point’s employees are encouraged to explore new boundaries and bring new ideas to the company and its customers. They meet these goals with a passion, dedicated to truly making a difference – both in the workplace and in the community. Knight Point strives to make the work environment fun, exciting, and not just a place to work, but a place where a person goes to make a difference and have fun doing it.
“This award honors the hard work and commitment to excellence that all of our employees demonstrate every day,” said Chief Operating Officer, Doug Duenkel, “our employees are our greatest asset and this award is a ‘thank you’ to everyone for making Knight Point a great place to work.”
Knight Point ranked as a Top Ten winner in the Washingtonian article for “Winners With the Highest Employee Scores for Great Pay” and whimsically, “Winners With the Highest Employee Scores for Good Coffee”. The article touts Knight Point’s belief in growing its employees “who receive and average of 56 training hours each year”, while also noting charitable donations of over $106,000 over the last three years.
