Employee Recognition Underscores Velocify’s Commitment to a Positive Work Culture
Los Angeles – Dec. 10, 2014 — Velocify, the market leader in cloud-based intelligent sales automation software, today has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2015 in the SMB category. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its seventh year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company reviews survey.
“What a great honor to be recognized by Glassdoor and our employees as one of the Best Places to Work in the U.S. in 2015,” said Velocify President and CEO Nick Hedges. “My goal is to make Velocify a career-defining event for all my employees. Fostering both personal and career growth is a top priority, we want our people to perform at their best and be a part of the best team in technology.”
Velocify ranked number 23 in the SMB category. As noted by employee feedback, Velocify is a company where you can “create and make a difference,” “feel appreciated,” be surrounded by “employees that are motivated and enthusiastic about their work,” contribute to a team that is “talented and hardworking and committed to delivering a game-changing product.” Velocify also offers unique employee benefits and perks, including a generous reward structure, work-hard-play-hard mentality, supportive environment, quarterly social events and a fully stocked kitchen.
“I am proud to celebrate the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award winners in earning this tremendous achievement,” said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. “Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences. It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”
The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 13, 2013 and November 2, 2014. To be considered for the SMB category, a company must have less than 1,000 employees and have received at least 20 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
