NEW YORK, March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LivePerson, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPSN), has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal Constitution. 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.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, 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." Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
LivePerson, a leading provider of mobile and online messaging, helps facilitate meaningful connections between brands and consumers. "We are honored to be named among the 2016 Top Workplaces in Atlanta and it shows that our mission of creating meaningful connections is truly being lived out in our company culture," says John Hanger, general manager of Contact At Once!, a LivePerson company.
Atlanta-based LivePerson staff will be in new state of the art facilities with an innovative open design at Avalon Park in Alpharetta next month. "We have rapidly expanded our presence in metro Atlanta and are excited to have our entire team in one space with room to grow," Hanger says.
