Kennesaw, GA–March 30, 2016–Orasi Software, an Atlanta-based software quality reseller and professional services company, today announced it is the recipient of a 2016 Top Workplaces honor from The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC). Orasi, which was one of more than 1400 companies nominated for the honor, ranked 21st in the Midsize Companies category (150-499 employees). Orasi received its award at a recognition event for Top Workplace winners on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in the Cumberland/Galleria area of Atlanta.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey, which is administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture are 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,” said 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 and how it’s going to get there—and the feeling that everyone is in it together,” Claffey added. “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
To be eligible for consideration as an Atlanta Metro Area Top Workplace, organizations must first be nominated by employees of the firm. From that point, the AJC’s editorial team reaches out to nominated organizations, gaining permission for a brief employee survey. Companies that are well-rated by their employees are eligible for inclusion in the final Top Workplaces listing. The only other criteria for nomination is that all firms must have 50 employees or more.
“Creating an engaging and inspiring work environment is certainly important in today’s competitive business climate, said Orasi Software President and CEO Nick Kavadellas. “Nevertheless, Orasi also wants to ensure our personnel thrive and enjoy a positive work experience. It was gratifying for us to learn that our employees regard Orasi so highly that their praise placed us in this elite group of Top Workplace Award winners.”
