AUBURN, Wash. (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
Zones, Inc., a leading provider of technology solutions for business, healthcare, public sector and other vertical markets, was ranked as a Top Workplace by The Oregonian. The Top Workplaces program was set up to recognize companies that have a great workplace and are organizationally healthy by encouraging a working environment that allows them to outperform peers. The awards are based on the results of an internal employee survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics.
“Our highly skilled team members are Zones’ most important assets,” said Firoz Lalji, CEO of Zones. “We truly value the passion and expertise of our team members, and we are honored to be named one of this year’s Top Workplaces. We strive to provide the best work environment for our team members, and this recognition underscores that effort.”
The Top Workplace survey explores three different aspects of organizational health. The first category is direction, which reflects how well employees are aligned with the organization’s goals. The next is execution, which pertains to the organization’s culture of high performance. And finally, employees are asked about connection, which gauges how valued and appreciated employees feel at work.
Zones ranks 21st on this year’s small business list, out of 40 small businesses in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Zones was recognized on this year’s Top Workplace list for its favorable workplace culture. In addition, employees referenced a network of support and encouragement, competitive benefits, and an emphasis on wellness and work/life balance.
Each year, over 1.9 million employees participate in the Top Workplaces survey, and companies with the highest rankings are recognized in over 30 regional lists, and in one national list. You can learn more about the Top Workplaces program here: http://www.topworkplaces.com/.
