For Conenza to make the list of Washington’s Best Companies to Work For in their first year of entering the competition is a marvelous accomplishment.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Conenza, Inc., a leading provider of social business solutions, has been named by Seattle Business magazine as one of “Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For.” Conenza ranks among the smaller firms making the prestigious list. And that’s big news for this fast-growing company, as it exemplifies the emerging wisdom that small is the new big.
“Of course, we’re thrilled to be named one of Washington’s best,” said Conenza CEO, Tony Audino, “but we believe the bigger news in this award is that small companies—those with fewer than 100 employees—really can compete with the largest enterprises.” That should hearten others who might believe they’re too small to contend. “The fact is,” Audino continued, “small companies with talented and committed employees, innovative and profitable business models, and deep levels of earned customer trust comprise the ultimate competitive advantage.”
Michael Romoser, Associate Publisher at Seattle Business magazine, noted, “For Conenza to make the list of Washington’s Best Companies to Work For in their first year of entering the competition is a marvelous accomplishment. It is also noteworthy that, at a time when most companies have had to tighten their belts, companies like Conenza are demonstrating the best practices in the workplace that inspire their employees.”
The results of the competition were based on surveys of employees who completed extensive questionnaires about their employer with criteria including leadership, communication, benefits, opportunities for growth, and training. Companies ranking among the top of their respective categories were further vetted by a panel of judges who determined the final scores.
