TicketNetwork® Recognized Among Best Places to Work in Connecticut

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2012) - TicketNetwork®, the leading online exchange for event tickets and innovative technology solutions provider, today announced it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut by the Hartford Business Journal. This program, now in its seventh year, is managed by the Best Companies Group, and sponsored by The Hooker & Holcombe Companies.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Connecticut, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 30 companies split into two categories: 12 small- and medium-sized companies (15-199 employees) and 18 large-sized companies (200 or more employees). TicketNetwork® has been named one of this year's Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the large-sized company category.

In July 2011, TicketNetwork was selected by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to participate in Governor Dannel P. Malloy's First Five job creation and economic development program. TicketNetwork® is committed to creating at least 200 jobs over two years and possibly up to 600 over the next ten years.

"This accolade is truly reflective of the corporate culture and business growth objectives that TicketNetwork® works very hard to achieve and maintain," said Don Vaccaro, CEO, TicketNetwork®. "We are especially pleased that this honor is a direct result of the honest feedback our employees provided in a survey. It demonstrates that the people who work at TicketNetwork® are fully engaged with the various programs that are designed to help them grow as personnel on professional and individual levels," added Vaccaro.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies, and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

The actual rankings will be published in the March 2012 issue of the Hartford Business Journal; the ranked companies will be recognized at a special awards ceremony on March 21, 2012.
