Fiksu Named One of Boston Globe's Top Places to Work for 2013

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2013) - Fiksu, Inc., developer of award-winning app marketing technologies, today announced it has been recognized by the Boston Globe as one of the Top Places to Work for 2013. The Boston Globe honors Massachusetts' best employers in its Top Places to Work magazine, which appeared in The Boston Sunday Globe on November 17.

For six years, this magazine has honored the state's most beloved workplaces based on surveys completed by the people who know them the best -- the employees themselves.

"As our economy continues to heal, most of the benchmarks for progress are purely quantitative, such as increased pay rates and expanded benefits packages," said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. "While there is definite value in these indicators, many signs of recovery cannot be boiled down to pure economics. The companies on our Top Places to Work list foster productivity and innovation by investing in the happiness of their employees, which cannot solely be measured in dollars and cents."

"It's an honor to be recognized by our own staff as a top place to work for the second year running," said Fiksu CEO and founder Micah Adler. "This award is a testament to Fiksu's ability to maintain an outstanding work environment through considerable growth, not only in our Boston headquarters, but for our 200 employees across three continents. It's a credit to our employees -- the most talented and dedicated individuals in the industry."

The Boston Globe's 2013 Top Places to Work survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics, measured more than 76,000 individuals' responses to statements regarding six key factors related to employee happiness, including company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits. Least important were pay, benefits and work-life balance, with survey subjects placing much higher importance on employee appreciation, confidence and feeling that their work is meaningful. WorkplaceDynamics also found that of all the cities surveyed, employees in Boston were most enthusiastic about their companies, making Boston the top of the Top Places to Work.
