For the Fourth Year, Flexera Software Named a Chicago Tribune 2016 Top 100 Workplace
Company’s global success helps fuel Chicago’s reputation as a technology innovation hub
Itasca, IL - November 22, 2016 Flexera Software, the leading provider of next-generation software licensing, compliance, security and installation solutions for application producers and enterprises, today announced it has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Chicago Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.
Flexera Software employees were asked to complete a confidential survey on a variety of workplace satisfaction issues, and those results were benchmarked against the responses of the rest of the participating companies. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured – including Alignment, Execution and Connection.
“Flexera Software represents what is great about the Chicago tech sector and the smart people working here. With 900 employees worldwide, we have grown from start-up phase to become one of the largest and most successful privately held software companies headquartered in the region. To achieve this success, we are serious about our products, people and culture, and we are very pleased to be recognized by the Chicago Tribune with a Top Workplaces award for the fourth time,” said Jim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer at Flexera Software. “The best part of this award is that only our employees influenced the results. That truly speaks volumes as to what a great place Flexera Software is to work, grow your career and hone your skills.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it is 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 is most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it is going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization does not have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
