Vienna, VA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
Parature, the global leader in on-demand customer support and help desk software, announced today their recognition as one of the regionÂs great places to work by The Washingtonian magazine at their awards luncheon Thursday, October 18th at the Capital Hilton, Washington, DC. The award recognizes the companyÂs achievements for creating interesting work, providing excellent compensation & benefits, maintaining a collegial staff, facilitating employee development and flexibility, as well as an overall positive work environment.
The Greater Washington Board of Trade, a ÂGreat Places to WorkÂ sponsor, along with The Washingtonian presented the results of quantitative employee surveys to the crowd of 400. Parature was one of three software companies selected in the Âsoftware servicesÂ category and was among 60 diverse companies hailing from virtually every business sector. The companies were selected from a pool of more than 225 candidates.
The companies are also profiled in the October 18th edition of The Washingtonian.
Parature scored high marks in all areas of the survey including company culture, employee benefits, strength of the management team, opportunity for advancement, and workplace morale. Parature employees noted the companyÂs exciting and interactive environment as a differentiator over other companies. Establishing ÂFive Guys FridaysÂ when award-winning food from Five Guys Burgers & Fries restaurants is brought in for all employees to enjoy at no cost, holding corporate quarterly meetings off-site at AMC Movie Theaters and quarterly celebrations at local hot spots, such as MaggianoÂs, and scenic riverboat cruises down the Potomac, as well as participating in fun cross company activities like ping-pong, basketball, soccer, and foosball tournaments adds a level of interaction that makes working collaboratively day-to-day with co-workers very relaxed, enjoyable, and productive.
ÂIt is an honor to be named a Âgreat place to workÂ in greater Washington, D.C., particularly considering the extraordinary business community that exists in this area,Â stated Duke Chung, Parature CEO and President. ÂIt is our commitment, at Parature, to not only build a successful company, but to encourage our employeeÂs personal and professional growth while simultaneously creating a culture that is challenging, motivational, and fun.Â
