Vertex, Inc., a leading provider of tax technology and services, announced that it has been named a 2018 Top Workplace by Philly.com for the fourth consecutive year.
“Our employees bring passion to fuel the development of our products and services and purpose to help us achieve our goals,” said David DeStefano, president and CEO of Vertex. “This award is really about recognizing the hard work of our employees, our most valuable asset — we are all honored to be named a Top Workplace for a fourth year in a row.”
Profiled in a special print section of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Vertex placed in the top 20 out of 30 organizations in the large company category and was one of only 125 companies honored this year. Vertex employees gave the company high marks for pay and benefits, work flexibility and support from managers.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage. Previously known as WorkplaceDynamics, Energage is a leading research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
