The first annual program, sponsored by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com, recognizes regional organizations that make a difference in employees’ lives
Berwyn, PA – March 23, 2010 – Vertex Inc., the leading provider of enterprise corporate tax solutions, was named one of the “Top Workplaces 2010” in the first annual program sponsored by The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com. Vertex ranks 18 out of 57 in comparison with other midsized organizations in the Delaware Valley.
The results of the program are based solely on information provided from in-depth surveys completed by hundreds of employees at each nominated company. Vertex employees gave the company’s policies high rankings for working conditions, pay and benefits, and direction of the organization. These summary results also provide an additional tool in the ongoing assessment and implementation of policies and benefit programs currently offered at Vertex.
“Vertex works continuously to foster an environment where our people can thrive – both personally and professionally – and our success is reflected in our ability to attract and retain top talent,” commented Vertex President and CEO Jeff Westphal. “The fact that so many of our employees rated Vertex so positively is a testament to the success of our corporate culture and our approach to doing business.”
While the program surveyed the 477 Philadelphia area employees, Vertex’s 650-plus employees across the globe all enjoy a broad range of innovative policies and benefits designed to help them better manage the rigors and stress brought on by life and work. Transcending traditional work/life balance issues, these workplace policies are continuously evaluated and modified – with employee feedback – to adapt to changing time, culture, and the economy.
Vertex offers a Flexible Work Arrangement plan, which allows employees to tailor their work experience to fit their lives. The program includes options for a compressed workweek (four days vs. five), flexible hours, working from home, and remote work for employees who have been relocated because of a spouses transfer or other reason. The company also offers on-site daycare for employees in the Philadelphia area, recognition programs, mentoring opportunities, and a training budget for every employee to support their needs and to encourage career growth.
With the recognition by “Top Workplaces”, Vertex adds to the growing list of prestigious recognition programs that include “Best Places to Work” (Main Line Today), “Best Places to Work in PA” (Best Companies Group), and “Best Employer for Working Families” (The Delaware Valley Child Care Council).
