PowerDMS named one of Florida’s best companies
For the 2nd year in a row our portfolio company PowerDMS has been named one of Florida’s best mid-sized companies by Florida Trend magazine. (They’re up to #3 this year.)
The news comes on the heels of May’s news that the company had been named one of Central Florida’s 2015 Best Places to Work by Nebraska-based Quantum Workplace, and June’s big event: the company’s relocation to the Church Street Exchange Building as an anchor tenant in the newly repurposed technology hub. The iconic building, built in 1988, was a shopping, dining, and entertainment destination for theme park tourists until the parks caught onto the idea and built their own. The rebirth of “The Exchange” took partial inspiration from how downtown Chicago’s “1871” building became a hub for start-ups.
We’re very proud of what Josh (Josh Brown, CEO) and his team have built, which is, in addition to being a great place to work, a visionary technology platform and the leader in the ECM/GRC (Enterprise Content Management/Governance Risk Compliance) space.
From Florida Trend:
To identify Florida’s best employers, Florida Trend partners with the Best Companies Group, which surveyed firms that chose to participate. Any firm with at least 15 employees in Florida, including firms based outside the state, could participate at no cost.
The first part of the survey involved a questionnaire about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part went to a randomly selected group of each firm’s employees, who responded — anonymously — to 72 statements on a five-point agreement scale.
The survey also included two open-ended questions and seven demographic questions. The questions focused on eight themes: Leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
