TAMPA, Fla., April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ConnectWise, the leading business management solution designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARs and MSPs announced today it has once again been selected as one of the region's best places to work by the St. Petersburg Times. The company was ranked highly in the categories of Direction, Execution, Career opportunity, and Managers.
This is the second time ConnectWise was chosen as a Top Tampa Bay Workplace. In 2010, the company was ranked #20 in the small company category. Nominated and selected this year based on employee surveys, ConnectWise was ranked #13 moving into the midsize company category. Workplaces are evaluated on leadership, compensation and training, policies and practices, flexibility, and diversity. Companies on the list offer employees more than fair compensation and benefits; they provide a sense of mission and purpose that guides productivity. ConnectWise is an employee-owned business in which everyone has a stake in the company's profitability, and its executives have received numerous awards for their leadership, vision, and contributions to the community.
The annual ranking is created by the St. Petersburg Times and WorkplaceDynamics, a firm specializing in employee engagement
"Readers have a good sense of what truly makes these Tampa Bay companies special places to work. We've captured and shared the stories of the employees and trends in the workplace. It's a great combination," said Neil Brown, Times editor and vice president.
