Vertex, Inc., a leading provider of tax technology solutions and services, announced that it has been named a 2017 Top Workplace by Philly.com. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Employee engagement is a key component of our corporate culture at Vertex,” said David DeStefano, president and CEO of Vertex. “Because our employees are engaged and passionate about what they do and where they work, that enthusiasm and excitement is reflected in the products and services we offer to our clients. We’re especially honored to be recognized for our competitive benefits, and to be part of a select group of successful organizations we admire — I’m very proud that this is determined solely by our employees.”
Profiled in a special print section of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Vertex placed in the top 20 out of 30 companies in the large company category for the third year in a row. This year Vertex also won a special award for its benefits in comparison to others in the industry, and was recognized for one of the best non-traditional perks: free gift wrapping during the holiday season for all employees. The company received the honors at an awards ceremony held in Philadelphia.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And often, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says 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, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
