Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a market-leading systems integrator
that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, today
announced that it has been named to the 2013 FORTUNE "100 Best Places to
Work For®" list. This is the second year in a row that WWT
has received this honor. Selection to the FORTUNE "100 Best Places to
Work For®" list is a recognition sought by a large number of
companies, yet only 100 elite organizations are ultimately selected.
This year, WWT is honored to be recognized once again for a corporate
culture that combines productive, people-focused work environments with
strong growth and operations. WWT occupies the number 24 spot on the
list, moving up from 50 in 2012. Today, WWT joins the ranks of the
widely admired companies that have won in the past, including SAS,
Cisco, Edward Jones, Google and NetApp.
To select the companies for the "100 Best Places to Work For®"
list, FORTUNE conducts a truly comprehensive annual workplace survey
that reviews detailed applications sent in by hundreds of companies.
Before selecting a company for its list, FORTUNE considers a wide-range
of criteria, including company practices and culture, and even employee
feedback. This year, the full list and related stories of the 100
companies on the list are currently available at www.fortune.com.
Additionally, WWT will be among those companies featured in FORTUNE's
print issue, available on newsstands in February.
Comments on the Announcement
To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the
Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee
survey in corporate America: 259 firms participated in this year's
survey. More than 277,000 employees at those companies responded to a
survey created by the Institute, a global research and consulting firm
operating in 45 countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company's
score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey,
which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The
survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's
credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based
on responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed
questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended
questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication,
training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. After evaluations
are completed, if news about a company comes to light that may
significantly damage employees' faith in management, we may exclude it
from the list. Any company that is at least five years old and has more
than 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible. For information on how to apply,
