Connectria Named St. Louis Post-Dispatch 2015 Top Workplace
Marks the 3rd Time Connectria Received this Distinction Based Solely Upon Employee Feedback
ST. LOUIS, MO – June 30, 2015 – Connectria Hosting, a global managed and cloud hosting provider, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces for 2015. This distinction, which Connectria has earned for the third year, was based solely on employee feedback.
The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 45 major publishing partners across the United States. Over the past year, more than 6,000 organizations and one in every eighty-eight employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees.
In addition to fostering a challenging and rewarding work environment, Connectria employees cited generous benefits and a unique “No Jerks Allowed” supportive culture as reasons they feel Connectria is one of the best places to work in the St. Louis area. The many benefits named by employees include Connectria’s contribution to each employee’s 401K regardless of their participation as well as a stocked kitchen, including special “treats” like free popcorn each Thursday and ice cream each Friday. Connectria employees enjoy fitness centers at multiple locations with free access to a personal trainer. In addition, the company financially supports employee participation in local charitable events, provides each employee an annual allowance for corporate logo apparel, and in the spirit of fun, raffles off tickets to St. Louis Cardinals and Blues games. Employees are invited to summer concerts and movies, an annual family picnic as well as an annual holiday party. To mark milestones, birthdays and employment anniversaries are celebrated with special events.
“It’s such an honor to once again be recognized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a Top Workplace – especially because this achievement is made possible solely by our employees, whose anonymous feedback dictates this award’s designation,” said Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “This recognition is particularly rewarding given last week’s announcement of Connectria being named to Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT for the second consecutive year. Taking great pride in our ‘No Jerks Allowed’ philosophy and ability to offer employees the special perks and benefits they deserve, this honor validates that we’re a team that talks the talk and walks the walk.”
