COPPELL, Texas, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- FORTUNE announced Thursday that Shared Technologies Inc. ranked 33 on the 13th annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list. This is the third consecutive year that Shared Technologies has placed on the prestigious listing. The full rankings and related stories will appear in the February 8 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands January 25th, and now at www.fortune.com/bestcompanies.
"I am humbled and honored by this year's recognition. To earn such a distinction in one of the most challenging years in business I can remember is a real testament to our culture and the commitment of our employees," said Tony Parella, President and Chief Executive Officer of Shared Technologies. "We have always believed a great work environment creates the foundation for a great customer experience. I would like to congratulate our entire Shared Technologies team for making the recognition from FORTUNE possible for the third consecutive year."
FORTUNE Deputy Managing Editor Hank Gilman says, "The most important considerations for this year's list were hiring and the ways in which companies are helping their employees weather the recession. All 100 companies on our list are currently hiring, many of them aggressively, leading to more than 96,000 open job positions expected in the next year."
To pick the 100 Best Companies, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about the management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring, communication, and diversity.
