eTERA Consulting Again Named One of the Best Places to Work in Washington, D.C. Area

D.C.-Based Company Recognized for Outstanding Company Culture, Commitment to Employee Development

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) -  eTERA Consulting, an internationally recognized and award-winning leader in data and technology management, today announced that the Washington Business Journal has named eTERA's Washington, D.C. office as one of the metro area's Best Places to Work for the second time. eTERA is one of 25 honorees in the 'small company' category.

"Co-founder Mike Garner and I built this company based upon the principle that our employees are our number one asset -- not the technology we use or the methodologies we practice," said Scott Holec, eTERA's President. "I have made it a priority to maintain open, honest and transparent communication with all employees, particularly in light of the rapid growth we have seen in the last several years."

As an example, we have a monthly 'eTERA Excellence Call' which allows leadership to communicate candidly and freely with the company about the current state and future direction of eTERA, instilling a strong sense of trust between all employees, Holec continued. 

"In 2015, we achieved a remarkable 96% retention rate and increased our workforce by 33%," said Kristin Thomas, eTERA's HR Generalist. "We attribute this success to our investment in the ongoing training and education of employees. We encourage everyone to seek out new certifications, attend conferences and engage in meaningful conversations with industry peers to continue to develop professionally and advance in their careers."

Beyond encouraging professional development, eTERA has also established cross-departmental working groups that address several different focus areas such as client engagement and company-wide event coordination.

"The working groups allow employees to interact with others they do not typically work with on a day-to-day basis," continued Thomas. "This framework further supports our objective of encouraging teamwork, a sense of trust between all employees and keeping everyone engaged in the future direction of the company. We are thrilled to have been selected as one of the best places to work in the Washington, D.C. area, and look forward to continuing to foster a vibrant and positive company culture."

Award recipients were determined exclusively upon the basis of employee responses to a survey that assesses overall job satisfaction in a number of areas including personal growth, managerial effectiveness and workplace satisfaction. The 2016 rankings will be announced at the Washington Business Journal's Best Places to Work celebration on June 9, 2016 at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.
