CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (PRWEB) October 17, 2017
WillowTree, Inc.®, a leading design and mobile application development company, is a Best Small & Medium Workplace in the U.S. according to Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work®.
WillowTree ranked No. 66 on this year’s list, earning its position based on ratings its team provided in an anonymous survey measuring the quality of camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace.
This ranking considered 74,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy.
“Investing in our employees and work culture is the right thing to do for so many reasons, but a particularly important one is that it’s good for business,” said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree. “It’s common sense that the best team delivers the best product. From the beginning of WillowTree, we have made it a priority to build a team of mobile designers, developers, and strategists who are not only talented and passionate about the work they do, but unrelenting when it comes to solving the complex challenges our clients across the enterprise, media delivery, retail, and healthcare industries bring to us. We are extremely proud of our team and the work they do. All recognition for our inclusion on this year’s “Best Small & Medium Workplaces” goes to them—they make WillowTree an exceptional place to be a part of.”
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
"The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level.
