A Culture Rooted in Relationships and Serving Others Upholds Company’s Standing as a Top Organization to Work For
For the fifth year in a row, TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions and IT services, announced it was named to Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for 2017. TEKsystems is ranked No. 83 on the list. The ranking is based on feedback from more than 232,000 employees at Great Place to Work® companies with more than 1,000 employees.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list, and 2017 winners continue to show that a high-trust culture fuels better business results. Great Place to Work® research shows that list winners keep outperforming the stock market, beating industry rivals when it comes to talent retention and demonstrating higher levels of productivity than peers.
TEKsystems earns its position on the list as a result of the company’s focus on culture and core values centered on helping employees realize their personal and professional goals.
“The thing that makes TEKsystems a great place to work is both the people and the culture. The best part of my job is watching my teammates achieve their personal and professional goals through pushing and coaching them to exceed their potential. Although our industry is extremely competitive, we have a team approach to capture market opportunities through driving quality and service to our customers.” – 2017 Great Place to Work® Trust Index© employee comment.
“At TEKsystems we strive to create an environment that creates the greatest amount of opportunity for our employees to achieve their personal and professional goals. By building strong relationships, coaching, supporting, and pushing one another, we foster an atmosphere that motivates people to perform to the highest standards on behalf of our customers and consultants. I am humbled every day by the superior quality and service provided by our TEKsystems team members and congratulate all of them on this recognition,” says TEKsystems President Jay Alvather.
TEKsystems was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
