MANHATTAN, KS – August 27th, 2012 CivicPlus, the leading provider of comprehensive local government websites and community engagement software, is proud to announce that it has been named one of the most 50 Engaged Workplaces, as awarded by Achievers.com. The awards will be presented at a ceremony in October.
“Obviously, we are incredibly excited about this award,” CEO Ward Morgan said. “For us to be mentioned in the same category as Royal Caribbean Cruises and Zappos, that puts us in some very elite company.”
The award is based on the concept of employee engagement, which is the willingness of an employee to strive to do their best work on a daily basis. The award is given based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement, as defined by Achievers.com. They are: leadership, communication, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values and corporate social responsibility.
“The award shows that this company is serious about keeping its employees happy,” Morgan said. “We strive for a wonderful workplace culture and high morale. Our employees are what make this company great and it’s great to know that they are truly engaged within their company and passionate about what they do. I couldn’t be more proud of what this company has achieved and this award represents that.”
