SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jan 21, 2013) - Cicero Group (www.cicerogroup.com), a data-driven strategy firm, has been awarded Utah's 2012 Best Place to Work award.
Cicero Group sets itself apart by combining original data collection with the significant amounts of existing internal data maintained by many companies ("big data") in order to drive meaningful, strategic insights. Cicero's strategists and researchers are not merely highly trained data-wonks, but many of them have actually run large-scale business units. This unique combination enables Cicero to accurately translate data into substantive strategic direction for its clients.
"From CEO to associate, everyone at Cicero Group is accessible and committed to helping each other succeed. It is special to be a part of such a unique community, culture, and concentration of talent," says Tyson Chapman, an Engagement Manager at Cicero.
Randy Shumway, CEO of Cicero Group adds, "we provide opportunities for our employees to constantly grow and be challenged while working in a rewarding environment. The people at Cicero Group make up the culture, which is focused on solving difficult problems with data. Every day is different -- and that makes it intellectually rigorous and remarkably rewarding."
Cicero's clients include some of the world's fastest growing and successful companies. These organizations rely on Cicero's ability to quickly capture and analyze primary data about their customers, competitors and potential new opportunities to solve critical business questions.
The Best Place to Work award honors organizations in Utah that create exceptional workplaces and businesses by effectively addressing employee work/life needs and striving to create and sustain a culture of equity, growth and opportunity. Candidates for the award were judged in four areas: flexibility & benefits, whole life, workplace excellence, and business & personal success.
The Best Place to Work award comes in the wake of numerous other honors, including Utah's Best of State and Fast 50 award. In addition, one of Cicero's founders, Dr. Trent Kaufman, was named to Utah's 40-under-40.
