Charlotte, NC | November 12, 2012 – Jackrabbit Technologies, leading provider of web-based solutions for class-based businesses, was recognized as one of Charlotte’s Best Places to Work at a luncheon event hosted at the Charlotte Convention Center by the award’s sponsor, the Charlotte Business Journal. The annual awards are chosen from nominations submitted to the Business Journal each year on behalf of hundreds of companies across the Charlotte metro area.
Fifty-nine finalists were chosen and ranked in three business categories – Small, Mid-Sized and Large. Jackrabbit Technologies ranked twelfth in the Small Business category, marking 2012 as the third consecutive year that the company has earned a spot of honor among its small company peers.
“The Best Places to Work program provides us with valuable information about how we are doing with our employees through a clear unbiased view across our organization. Recognition as a finalist lets us know that we’re on the right track in providing a work environment that is well-accepted and appreciated by our team,” comments Mark Mahoney, Jackrabbit’s President and CoFounder.
This year’s results show that Charlotte’s employers enjoy an extraordinary 71% employee engagement rating. This is the highest percentage earned in employee engagement in the workplace across the U.S.
The Charlotte Business Journal’s 2012 Best Places to Work ranking were determined by aggregating the results of detailed employee surveys by Quantam Workplace, an independent human-resources survey company. Each survey question was assigned a point value, which was used in determining each company’s final score.
