ATLANTA, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eVestment, the global leader in institutional investor data and analytics, is one of the 2016 10 Best Medium Workplaces in Technology, according to the global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine.
eVestment ranked No. 5 on the list, a ranking based on employees' own assessments of their experiences of the camaraderie in eVestment's workplace, its career development, financial and non-financial rewards and the strength of its leadership team.
"Building a workplace that attracts and retains great talent is a key part of eVestment's growth and client service strategy," said eVestment co-founder and CEO Jim Minnick. "At eVestment, people know they are valued, that they can make innovative contributions and grow their careers. That environment leads to exceptional ideas, solution development and great team chemistry, not only within our technology group, but across the entire organization."
Survey results achieved a 95 percent confidence level and a margin of error of 5 percent or less. The total score for each company was determined entirely by employee feedback.
"The perks and benefits the best tech companies are known for are just what outsiders looking in get dazzled by," says Chinwe Onyeagoro, a business strategy expert and EVP of U.S. consulting at Great Place to Work. "This can be a false positive of sorts. These companies are great because they invest in trust. They stand on trust. They use trust as a competitive differentiator. They know that to be great you have to invest in better relationships -- not in more things. Simply investing in this will not create a Great Place to Work."
The Best Workplaces in Technology ranking is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work certified organizations.
eVestment also ranked No. 15 among medium sized companies on the Great Place to Work 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list released in October of last year and published in Fortune magazine. The company has also placed on numerous local Atlanta and Georgia best places to work lists and has placed for nine consecutive years on the Inc. Magazine list of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States.
