19TH BEST SMALL & MEDIUM WORKPLACE AND 21ST BEST WORKPLACES FOR DIVERSITY FOR 2015 Employee trust in the workplace is the leading factor for great workplaces Reston, VA – Macedon Technologies was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best small and medium workplaces in the United States on their annual 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published in the November 1st, 2015 Fortune magazine. Ranked 19th in the nation, this is the first time Macedon Technologies has received this honor. The list is divided into two categories, Small (25-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees), and has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past eleven years. Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Macedon Technologies participated in a rigorous selection process that included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. In compiling the list, Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with. Furthermore, Macedon Technologies is honored to announce that after surveying more than 128,000 women and 69,000 minority employees, Fortune and Great Place to Work® recognized Macedon Technologies as the 21st Best Workplace for Diversity in the United States. We consider this recognition exceptionally notable because it is based on our employees’ own assessments of the quality and inclusiveness of our workplace. Employees considered many things, including how comfortable they feel being themselves, the degree of favoritism or insider politics they observe in the workplace, the fairness of promotions, the degree of honest connection with coworkers, their access to senior leadership, and who does and does not receive information and professional development. Rankings also take into account how well-represented women and ethnic minorities are within the workforce, management, and executive positions. The survey assesses how positively women and ethnic minorities experience their workplace on an index of factors where they tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues, and how favorably their experiences compare to the 139,000 men and 184,000 Caucasians also surveyed. “Our culture at Macedon is built around mutual trust and empowerment in our employees,” said Austin Rosenfeld, CEO. “Our commitment to upholding these values, encouraging our employees to feel comfortable sharing their opinions, and creating a fun place to work creates the foundation for our ‘best company’ work culture. Ranking on Fortune and Great Place to Work’s 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity list offers even more evidence of the value we place on creating an exceptional work environment that is inclusive of all our people.” Tim Kelly, Vice President of Professional Services and Operations, added “We are honored by both of our rankings from Fortune and Great Place to Work Institute. Macedon Technologies has more than doubled in size over the last eighteen months and is able to attract talent through what employees say is a very diverse, welcoming, and social environment. The rating is largely based on employee survey responses, so it’s rewarding to know our employees are happy and proud to work at Macedon Technologies amongst talented coworkers and friends. After all, it’s our employees who make our growing company a great place to work!” Organizations named on the list see many benefits, such as better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity, and enhanced public perception.
