NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimension Data, the $5.8 billion global ICT solutions and services provider, today announced that it has been named to the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in the U.S. This annual award honors top employers that display leadership and innovation in employee engagement.
"The companies named in the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces understand that employee engagement is not just a buzzword, but it provides a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success see better alignment with business objectives and company values," said Achievers CEO Patrick D. Quirk. "These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success."
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Award winners were determined by a panel of judges who evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility. The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Northern California HR Association.
