Duluth, GA – Georgia Trend Magazine named Rocket IT as a 2017 Best Place to Work in Georgia this week, one of only 15 organizations headquartered in Georgia to be selected. This accolade recognizes organizations for going above and beyond in creating an environment where employees feel valued and engaged. Among other winners in the Gwinnett community are Edwards Jones, BrandBank, and Mighty 8th Media.
Based on the annual survey, managed by an independent research firm, employees rank organizations higher based on flexibility, recognition, career development, wellness opportunities, charitable work, and more. While special perks like ping-pong tables and bringing your pet to work are certainly icing on the cake, workers are looking for leadership that values and invests in their employees.
“We’ve faced a lot of changes and challenges that come with rapid growth as a team, and we’ve had a blast doing it. Rocket IT has always been a best place to work for me,” says Eric Henderson, Rocket IT’s Virtual Chief Information Officer and longest-term employee. “Developing our people has always been a priority, and I’m proud to be a part of that.”
This is the second accolade recognizing Rocket IT as a “Best Place to Work” in 2017. Additionally, the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce named Rocket IT their Overall Winner for the 2017 IMPACT Regional Business Awards earlier this year.
Rocket IT is the IT partner of choice for Gwinnett County organizations, providing both the strategy and support they need to thrive. By providing a client’s leadership team with the strategic foresight necessary for them to align technology investment with business goals, they can work from a shared vision, which increases efficiency, decreases risk, and increases revenue.
