The Software House That Roars
Greensboro, North Carolina & Beverly Hills, California: Employer of Choice, Inc. today awards its inaugural designation of "Employer of Choice®" to Motek. This award recognizes an organization's dedication to a higher level of performance, greater workforce stability, and the level of continuity that assures preservation of the knowledge base, customer loyalty, employee satisfaction, and stronger profits.
"Employer of Choice®" such as Motek, who are able to attract, optimize, and retain top talent, will enjoy a substantial tactical advantage over their competitors," says Roger E. Herman, chief executive officer of Employer of Choice, Inc. "They will have the knowledge, experience, resiliency and power to respond quickly to the marketplace, delivering what customers want more efficiently and effectively than competitors plagued by nagging employee turnover. This strength will allow them to win more business and maintain high levels of customer service and loyalty."
"Our people are our most important competitive advantage. We recognize that they represent our most valuable asset. Attracting, challenging and retaining the best is the key to our success. Never before has this been more difficult, especially in the technology business. That is why we lead with our corporate culture," says Ann S. Price, chief executive officer and president of Motek. "Being recognized as an "Employer of Choice®" encourages us to continue our quest for balance and quality in the work place."
Here is what a few of the employees at Motek say about their work environment:
Fran Acker, project manager/trainer at Motek says: "Motek redefines the workplace in a way that ensures people grow professionally and personally with an emphasis on balance."
Ran Ever Hadani, technical consultant says: "Unlike traditional bonuses that are divisive and reward the few, Motek makes every effort to eliminate competition and ensure that we all share in the company's success. That's what keeps me at Motek."
Sheryl Shimoni, bookkeeper says: "When I came to Motek a few years ago, I was trained, exposed to new technology, and given an opportunity for advancement, despite not having been in the workforce for many years. And I was given equal pay and outstanding benefits. No other company would have given me the opportunities that Motek has."
Curt Hagenlocher, chief information officer says: "My previous job with NASA with its bureaucratic constraints prevented me from making a real impact. At Motek I have been given the freedom to define a technology that could change the world."
Employer of Choice, Inc. of Greensboro, North Carolina has created the "Employer of Choice®" designation as a commitment to the philosophies and testimonials laid out in How To Become An Employer Of Choice, by Roger E. Herman and Joyce L. Gioia (Oakhill Press, April 2000). This new book, which describes how enlightened employers can differentiate themselves in our turbulent world of work, is packed with scores of practical examples to win the war for talent and retain the brightest and best-not such an easy task in this tight labor market. Information on the book and the recognition program is posted at www.hermangroup.com/employerofchoice.
