Firm Named the #2 Top Place to Work in Atlanta by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
ATLANTA, Georgia – March 22, 2016 – Insight Sourcing Group is pleased to announce that it has been named the number two small workplace by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in their 2016 Top Workplaces ranking. In addition to claiming the number two spot on the small companies list, the firm’s founder and CEO, Tom Beaty, received special recognition as the Best Leader among small companies.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top places to work in Atlanta. It is my belief that if such amazingly talented people choose to join us in the quest to build the premiere firm in our space, than it is my responsibility to invest in them and to ensure they are happy, fulfilled, and intellectually challenged,” said Beaty. “And further, if we are able to attract and retain individuals who are not only talented but are also just “good people”, our clients will ultimately benefit. This simple recipe for building a great business has worked for us beyond any expectations I might have held when the firm was born in my basement 13 years ago.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, 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.”
