ConnectWise was recently named one of Tampa Bay’s Top Work Places 2010 by the St. Petersburg Times. Of all entries, 60 leading employers in the Tampa Bay region were selected based on nominations by their employees, who were then surveyed about a variety of topics, including practices and policies that make these companies the top places to work. ConnectWise was ranked #20 out of 60 companies to be included in this prestigious list.
The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. Overall the survey underscored that tough times cement loyalty. Leadership matters. Respect and fairness are valued. And a fulfilling work life starts with a baseline of good pay and benefits. To make this list, companies also had to convey a sense of direction – employees had to believe in the company's mission.
ConnectWise is an employee-owned business in which everyone has a stake in the company’s profitability. “ConnectWise is founded on the ‘pay-it-forward’ principle that underscores a commitment to giving back,” said ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini. “By fostering a sense of community where ideas are freely shared in a supportive environment, we believe it is returned to the company – and our business partners – overall. We’re pleased to see that our employees appreciate our commitment to providing an enjoyable work experience.”
The Top Work Places 2010 in Tampa Bay program was created by the St. Petersburg Times and WorkplaceDynamics.
“This report is significant because it is an unprecedented effort to understand how Tampa Bay's companies are creating strong, productive work environments, even in difficult economic times,” said Neil Brown, Times executive editor and vice president. “We share the stories of the employees and offer an inside look into what’s working and where there’s opportunity to grow.”
