Comments on the News

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees? Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”

“At Plex, our culture can be summed up in two words: we care,” said Don Clarke, Plex CEO. “We care about our team and strive every day to create a workplace that enables them to collaborate, innovate, and enrich their professional lives. That passion extends to our customers. Our solutions are a direct result of the dedication and innovation of the Plex team, and of the culture we have built together.”
