TerpSys named one of "50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America" by SHRM and the Great Place to Work® Institute
(Rockville, Maryland) -
TerpSys has been recognized as one of 50 best small and medium companies to work for in America by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Great Place to Work Institute, Inc. (GPTW). Winners were announced this morning at SHRM's 61st Annual Conference in New Orleans, the largest gathering of HR professionals in the world. Overall, TerpSys ranked #17 on the list of small companies.

SHRM and GPTW have revealed the nation's top 25 small and top 25 medium-sized employers for the last six years.

Hundreds of companies across the United States submitted entries in the very detailed and competitive analysis conducted by GPTW. The rankings are primarily determined from employee opinion surveys that analyze an organization's workplace culture. Employee-survey responses count for two-thirds of an organization's score. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team, which accounted for one-third of the group's score.

"While we've been recognized in the Washington, D.C. metro area for our robust corporate culture, it is absolutely overwhelming to be considered for the same at a national level," states Ed Woods, company President. "It is a collaborative and ongoing relationship with our employees to push ourselves to do more for our customers, our families, and our communities. Our joy is impossible to put into words. Earning this award means that the bar has raised significantly and we have a lot of new challenges ahead to face. We are looking forward to conquering those challenges and pushing ourselves even harder."

"Getting the news that we were chosen as one of 50 best small and medium companies to work for in America this year has been a high point in our history. It is recognition, on a national level, of our efforts and accomplishments as one team working together to achieve great things," adds Sandy Albers, company Vice President of Human Resources. "We've always known that TerpSys was a very special and unique place to work. As Ed says, "It's like catching lightning in a bottle." All of us at TerpSys are deeply honored and proud that now, the rest of the world will learn that "catching lightning" is possible."
