Trace3 Announced as #1 Best Place to Work in Orange County

Out of 75 Top-Ranked Employers in Orange County, Trace3 Ranked #1 Best Place To Work

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Trace3, a leading IT Systems Integrator that provides solutions & services for reducing IT infrastructure complexity, today announced that it has been recognized by the Orange County Register as the #1 Best Place to Work in the small business category -- 150 employees or less. On December 10th, the Orange County Register published its special Best Workplaces Report featuring Trace3 as #1 and other Top 75 employers of the 111 surveyed in Orange County.

Top Workplaces are about more than just perks. They are about a better way of doing business. Employees want to be part of something meaningful, where they can contribute and give their best. Trace3 is that workplace. Trace3 was named the #1 Best Workplace in Orange County based upon its employee survey responses. The survey, sent by Workplace Dynamics, consisted of 6 categories, each having multiple questions to rate on: Direction, Career, Execution, Conditions, Managers, and Pay & Benefits.

In one of the anonymous surveys, someone said; "The culture is complete team culture -- the people Trace3 hires are not only the best in the industry but they are also good people who fit the culture. No arrogant prima-donnas, no whiny Eeyore types, just good people who understand what we are doing and want to be part of it. Quality of life is very important, work is important but so is life. Family, kids, personal -- so Trace3 ensures that you have both quality of life and work." Another said, "Trace3's leadership provides complete visibility to corporate strategy, revenue and plan. Our CEO (Hayes Drumwright) knows how to motivate without dictating and makes us feel that we're all part-owners rather than just employees."

"Being named Best Place to Work in Orange County is an honor that all of us share at Trace3. It is a recognition that each of us can be proud of because we have all built Trace3 centered on a sense of ownership and a culture that inspires leadership. I honestly feel lucky to be a part of this company," said Hayes Drumwright, CEO of Trace3.
