Tech in Motion named NJ-based software development innovator Infragistics a 2020 finalist for Best Tech Work Culture in the 6th annual Timmy Awards, which recognizes great workplaces for tech professionals. For Infragistics, it’s about far more than “perks” when it comes to a rewarding team environment; it’s about a shared mission, meaningful recognition and promoting innovation, learning and technical creativity. The New York/New Jersey metropolitan area community can vote for Infragistics here through Sept. 30 to be named the Regional Winner at the national round, judged by experts from companies like Netflix and Oracle and announced at the Timmy’s first virtual ceremony in October.
Infragistics places great emphasis on company culture and making the organization a special place to work. Infragistics employees enjoy the freedom to express their ideas and they passionately believe in the innovations they create. In addition to providing employees around the globe with a special care package to keep them engaged while working remotely, a new Infragistics peer recognition program uses video and company Intranet to re-enforce a positive company culture. Called the “IGGI” Awards (think Emmy, Oscar, ESPY), this monthly peer recognition program allows employees to nominate co-workers for embodying the corporate values of teamwork and collaboration, innovation, quality and creativity, delighting the customer, investing in its people and investing in each other.
“Infragistics is relentless about improvement, promoting learning and innovation,” said Dean Guida, CEO, Infragistics. “We encourage employees to be excited by the possibilities that change brings and find ways to get things done more inventively and efficiently.”
‘We’ve honored tech companies that go above and beyond to inspire innovation and create outstanding work environments for the past five years,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “In a year marked by unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, we are thrilled to acknowledge many of the companies striving to continue bettering the lives and culture of their tech teams.”
