TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ReliaQuest, a leading provider of IT security solutions, is now certified as a national Great Place to Work, with a 95 percent workplace satisfaction rate among its growing ranks of highly sought-after IT security professionals. This ranking is based on anonymous, voluntary surveys submitted by ReliaQuest employees to independent analysts at the Great Place to Work® Institute, an authority on workplace cultures since the 1980s.
ReliaQuest's positive company culture helps the company maintain an employee retention rate above 90 percent – a metric that is increasingly important as the IT security industry grows and evolves.
"Our people do a great job every day to create an open, fast-paced and challenging work environment centered around having the right attitude, energy and effort," said ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy. "It's humbling to come to work in a place full of so many talented individuals, and I'm proud that their efforts can be highlighted by such a prestigious certification like Great Place to Work. I'm lucky to work with this great group of people, and I look forward to watching our team grow as we continue to push the limits of the cybersecurity industry."
The Great Place to Work survey was sent to all ReliaQuest employees at its U.S. locations, with an overall satisfaction rate of 95 percent. In all categories examined by the analysts – company credibility, respect among employees, fairness, workplace pride and team camaraderie – ReliaQuest's scores were above 90 percent positive, with especially high marks in questions that asked about company atmosphere, positive challenges, corporate communication and company leadership.
These scores are above the average of similar companies surveyed last year, according to an anonymized report provided by Great Place to Work®. A summary of these ratings can be found at http://reviews.greatplacetowork.com/reliaquest.
"We applaud ReliaQuest for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work's Certification Program.
