At AvePoint, we believe that our employees are at the center of our success, and we’re excited to announce that we have won the Top Workplace Award for both our Jersey City, NJ headquarters and Richmond, VA operational headquarters! But the celebrations don’t stop there! We also landed awards for appreciation, direction, and values within the overall U.S. category. All of these awards exemplify our dedication to making AvePoint a place where people want to build their careers, pursue their passions, and unleash the power within them.
The Award Process
Being newer to the workplace awards space was an interesting and fun experience. We started by working with the Top Workplace Awards team to determine our eligibility, then launched an anonymous survey designed and executed by a third-party agency to go out to our North American employees. Our employees were unaware that this survey was associated with this award process, and it was amazing to see many genuine responses. Winning eligibility was also dependent upon employee participation in the survey and our participation rates were very strong.
Our leadership team is perpetually looking for ways to encourage and incorporate feedback from our staff as they have seen the kind of progress that comes from understanding our employees’ unique perspectives. As a part of the Top Workplace Award program, we were granted access to the survey results and were particularly excited to review them since they showed us how AvePoint stacks up to other companies of similar size and industry. We scored 11% above the benchmark in overall engagement, which considers factors such as job motivation, likelihood to refer a friend to AvePoint, and employee retention. We also received high remarks on employee loyalty and new hire experience. New hires included anyone brought onboard within the last 6 months, which were all folks who went through the entire recruitment, hiring, and onboarding experience completely remotely. The agility and resilience of our hiring teams ensured all remote onboarding processes went smoothly and effectively!
Now that the awards have been announced, we want to shout the news from the rooftop! Last, but not least, we would like to thank our wonderful people who contribute to AvePoint being such a great place to work!
