(Gawkwire) – Florida Trend Magazine named Peak 10 Inc. one of “Florida’s Best Companies to Work For” in its August 2012 edition. Peak 10, a national cloud and data center solutions provider, was recognized in the large company (250 or more employees) category.
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 maintains state-of-the-art data center facilities in three Florida cities: Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and Tampa. Florida Trend has included Peak 10 in its list of top Florida companies for the last four years.
The list includes 100 companies in three size categories—small, midsized and large. The winning companies were selected following a comprehensive survey process that included a questionnaire about company policies, practices and demographics, as well as an anonymous employee survey with questions focused on eight themes: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, role satisfaction, work environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development pay, and benefits and overall engagement.
“To be ranked among such distinguished companies in Florida is a great honor,” said Allen Skipper, senior vice president for Peak 10. “The fact that we’ve been named to the list of top companies for four years in a row attests to our commitment to create a work environment in which our employees can flourish and to the values that permeate all aspects of what we do.”
According to Skipper, who himself has been employed for 11 years with Peak 10, “The Peak 10 leadership team is committed to nurturing a company culture that supports individual empowerment, entrepreneurial thinking, collaboration and flexibility to best serve customers and to allow our employees to do what they do best.”
"Peak 10’s experts are always a pleasure to work with, as they demonstrate passion for their field and a commitment to customer service. They did an excellent job of describing Peak 10’s extensive range of services, and went to great lengths to help us design a highly-customized set of solutions to meet our needs and budget," said Joe Ballarino, the president and chief operating officer of Real Estate IS. "Peak 10’s ability and willingness to tailor solutions to meet our specific needs played a major part in our decision to use its services."
The Best Companies to Work for in the Florida program was created by Florida Trend Magazine and Best Companies Group (http://www.BestCompaniesGroup.com). It is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council, the state affiliate for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
“It’s our pleasure to recognize these great companies and encourage others to join them in building Florida’s competitive advantage,” said Andrew Corty, publisher of Florida Trend Magazine.
