ThunderCat Technology was recently named as one of The Best Places to Work in Virginia. Virginia Business created the annual list of Best Places to Work in Virginia.
The statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefitting the state’s economy, its workforce, and businesses. The 2015 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 companies. For the second year in a row, ThunderCat was ranked the #2 small business.
“At ThunderCat we often describe ourselves as more than a team and like a family. A family takes cares of each and other and respects each other. The management team strives hard to take care of each and every person. Each employee strives to excel and take pride in being a part of something special. We have a very diverse team in terms of skills and backgrounds. Therefore, we are particularly proud of this award because it means the efforts we are taking are in fact making the folks happy, productive and proud to be part of ThunderCat. We will continue to find ways to ensure our team knows how much we value them and appreciate their contributions,” said CEO, Tom Deierlein.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Virginia and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
