Managed Services Leader Ranked Twelfth in Large Company Category
TAMPA, JACKSONVILLE and FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (August 22, 2011) — Peak 10 Inc., a managed services and cloud provider with world-class data centers, was recently ranked twelfth among large-sized companies for Florida Trend’s Best Companies To Work For in Florida. One hundred companies were recognized in small, medium and large company categories. The rankings – the third annual statewide Best Companies list – appear in the August issue of Florida Trend and on FloridaTrend.com.
“We are flattered to be ranked as one of the best companies to work for in Florida,” said Allen Skipper, senior vice president of market operations for Peak 10. “We take a great deal of pride in maintaining our unique culture, which has remained the same since the company’s inception and is demonstrated across each one of our 10 markets. We owe our success to our talented people, as they are the reason that our customers seek us as trusted IT advisors.”
The Best Companies To Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
“Companies that retain the best employees with strong workplace programs typically stand out from the crowd by offering exceptional customer focus from a friendly, upbeat staff,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andrew Corty. “It’s our pleasure to recognize these great organizations and encourage others to join them in building Florida’s competitive advantage.”
Companies that chose to participate in the Best Companies To Work For in Florida process underwent a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings. Companies were not required to pay a participation fee to go through the online assessment process.
“One strong theme in this month’s Best Companies coverage is how companies keep good employees. We highlight companies that take sophisticated, enlightened approaches to training, communicate the company’s values clearly, and listen to employees as they try to improve the workplace and make the company more productive,” says Mark Howard, executive editor of Florida Trend.
