San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
On June 19, 2011, Taos, an IT consulting and services company, was named to the Bay Area News Group’s “Top Workplaces 2011” list of the best places to work in the Bay Area. The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from an employee survey to which over half of employees responded.
“It is an honor to be recognized as an employer of choice by our own employees,” said Trish Palumbo, Taos VP of Talent Management. “We continue to strive to understand the needs and values of our candidates and employees so we can attract and retain top talent. This award reinforces the fact that nurturing and supporting our employees is one of our highest priorities.”
Taos offers all employees a host of benefits, including competitive base salaries, paid vacation days, comprehensive health coverage, 401k options, and a fully-stocked kitchen, among others. But perhaps the most unique benefit of all is the “Taos Community,” an unparalleled support structure comprised of Taos’ extensive network of consultants and resources which provides employees with continuous professional growth and development.
The Taos Community is comprised of dedicated departments and resources, including Practice Management and “Practice Leaders” (subject matter experts) devoted to providing esacalation support. Practice Leaders also lead informative discussions held at Taos on a weekly basis. Each talk is centered around a discussion topic ranging from the latest technology releases to professional skills improvement. Another Taos Community feature is the Engagement Management team. Each employee is assigned an Engagement Manager who is a key resource to fostering and enhancing employee relationships and who serves as a continual link back to Taos while employees are on engagement. Taos University is the final piece of the Taos Community and includes a multitude of professional development resources including training courses, mentorships, a physical and online library, e-learning modules, and a lab environment to support hands-on learning. Through the many different avenues which comprise the Taos Community, Taos is able to offer its employees a unique, supportive, and challenging work environment.
To celebrate the award, Taos will host a company-wide employee appreciation party at the end of the month featuring TreatBot, an ice cream and karaoke truck.
