Softchoice's Growing Atlanta Office Named a Top Workplace

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 6, 2011) - Softchoice Corporation, (TSX:SO), a leading North American provider of technology solutions and services, was recently named an Atlanta Top Workplace by the Atlanta Journal-Constitute. The distinction was determined through the direct feedback that Softchoice employees provided in a survey administered by Workplace Dynamics. Survey results were benchmarked against 92 other Atlanta Small Employers, and measured across six factors including company direction, execution, workplace conditions, career potential, management and pay/benefits.

"We are thrilled that our Atlanta employees have chosen us as a top workplace," said David MacDonald, President and CEO, Softchoice. "Our growth as a local solutions provider and the value we deliver to our Atlanta-based customers is a direct result of the passion, dedication and energy of our people."

Softchoice's Atlanta location is the company's largest U.S. branch with more than 100 employees. Over the past year, Softchoice has continued to expand its portfolio of solutions and services offerings to customers. To support this focus, since January 2010 the Company increased by almost 17 per cent the number of Atlanta-based employees in sales, services and solution design roles. Yet with the growth and change, the company has maintained its focus on professional development, celebrating accomplishments at its annual Launch event and encouraging employees to take advantage of paid volunteer days to contribute to the local community.

"This is a great win for our entire Atlanta team," said Steve Johnson, SVP, Solutions Sales and Professional Services in Atlanta. "We have the best and most dedicated employees in the industry, and we couldn't be more delighted that our people provided such positive feedback."
