Vertex Inc., a leading provider of tax technology and services, announced it has been named a 2019 Top Workplace by Philly.com for the fifth year in a row.
“Our values are founded on a respect for all people and emphasize collaboration, performance, integrity and fun. We make sure to incorporate these each day on the job, enabling us to achieve our goals,” said David DeStefano, president and CEO of Vertex. “Our employees are the driving force behind everything we do at Vertex and this award is really about recognizing their commitment and hard work — we are all honored to be named a Top Workplace for another consecutive year.”
Profiled in a special print section of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Vertex placed in the top 20 out of 31 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 growth opportunities.
“Top Workplaces is more than just a recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research puts the employee at the center of things. Focusing on creating the right environment to unleash potential and inspire performance, leaders can prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. This award is an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
