Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
Applied Predictive Technologies (APT) announced today that the company has been selected as a winner for Washington DC SmartCEO’s Corporate Culture Awards. The Arlington-based company currently serves leading consumer-facing companies across the world, delivering predictive analytics software to help enable data-driven decision-making.
SmartCEO’s Corporate Culture Awards celebrates 50 companies in Greater Washington DC that have successfully championed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture, and have worked with their employees to develop successful organizational practices.
APT was recognized for its continued efforts to foster a vibrant corporate culture. For example, APT recently launched three diversity groups—APT Pride, APT’s Women’s Leadership Network, and APT’s Latin Network. APT also invests heavily in employees’ professional development and training, and contributes philanthropically to both local and global organizations. Simultaneously, APT focuses on building a collegial and collaborative workplace, offering a game room, multiple firm-wide social outings throughout the year, and 24-hour Hackathons where employees come together to solve the most difficult computational and engineering challenges facing Big Data analytics, among others.
Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO, stated, “The 2016 Corporate Culture Award winners have realized that running a company is more than head count and the bottom line. It’s about creating a place where creativity, energy and ideas are cultivated. Through this they are able to not only enhance performance and sustain their companies’ competitive advantages but also enrich the lives of those they employ and inspire them to make a greater impact on the world. We’re honored to celebrate with the leaders of Washington’s top company cultures and recognize them for building true performance-driven cultures.”
APT CEO Anthony Bruce commented, “We are honored to receive this award. Building a great company culture starts with recruiting world-class talent and then fostering an environment of training, mentorship, feedback, and collaboration in which team members will quickly grow, develop and succeed. Most importantly, it requires listening to team members about opportunities for the Firm to improve and acting on their ideas. Bringing people with different perspectives and diverse backgrounds together in an inclusive environment fuels innovation, and that has been the top priority at APT since its founding.”
