DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Apto, the leading web-based software platform for commercial real estate brokers, is pleased to announce it has been named to Inc. magazine's inaugural list of 50 Best Workplaces, the first such measurement of American companies with up to 500 employees that deploy state-of-the-art techniques to keep their staff happy and productive. In addition, the company has just been named one of Denver Business Journal's Best Places to Work, placing sixth in the rankings of medium-sized Denver companies.
"We hear it over and over again from the fast-growing businesses we cover: The biggest challenge that any business owner faces is finding and keeping the best people. That's why building a workplace culture that allows your staff to grow with your company is absolutely crucial," explains Inc.'s President and Editor-In-Chief, Eric Schurenberg. "Recipients of the Inc. Best Workplaces Awards have done so in spades. They should be celebrated and emulated."
"We started Apto in Houston (where we were also recognized as one of the city's Best Places to Work). When we moved the headquarters to Denver for its rich talent pool and high quality of life, a large handful of Houston employees moved with the company. We believe that speaks volumes about the passion and dedication of our team, and we remain committed to fostering a culture that inspires," said founder and CEO Tanner McGraw. "To be recognized by Inc. and Denver Business Journal is a testament to the enthusiasm and energy that our employees bring to work every day, as we continue to innovate for the commercial real estate industry."
To meet strong market demand for its product, Apto has doubled its headcount in the past year, including the appointment of Jennifer Panning as its CFO, along with a new VP of Sales.
"Since joining Apto earlier this year, I've been extremely impressed by the company's collaborative, empowering environment and high caliber of talent," said Panning. "The team here is genuinely proud of our product and excited about the work that we do."
The 2016 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on a collection of multiple choice, scaled and open-ended items. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. Core components of the scoring included company practices around management, employee recognition, performance communication, benefits and other elements of the employee experience.
