The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Names Ipswitch a Winner of the Atlanta Metro Area 2017 Top Workplaces Award

Ipswitch®, the leader in easy to implement and administer file transfer and network management software, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Mar. 27, 2017Ipswitch®, the leader in easy to implement and administer file transfer and network management software, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest, and oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

The honor recognizes Ipswitch’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture. More than 2,500 companies were nominated or asked to participate in the 2017 Top Workplaces contest. The top 165 companies in three size categories — small (149 or fewer employees), midsize (150-499 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) — were awarded during a lively cocktail ceremony on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.

“The Ipswitch Alpharetta team has worked tirelessly to create a community that honors our customers, celebrates employees and connects in a meaningful way with the local community,” said Steven Rotman, Chief People Officer at Ipswitch. “As Ipswitch celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are proud of our achievements including being a socially responsible company through philanthropy and service. Being honored by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is a testament to the culture that we have created. Ipswitch now stands out in a crowded local field filled with start-ups, national organizations and deep-rooted institutions.”
