The San Diego Union-Tribune names Jack Henry & Associates to Top Workplaces list
Company honored for its culture, advancement opportunities
MONETT, MO (November 22, 2016) — Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Today the company announced that it has been recognized among the 2016 Top Workplaces in the San Diego area by the San Diego Union-Tribune. This is the company’s first time on the list, and it placed number 19 in the midsized company category.
The San Diego Union-Tribune Top Workplaces list is in collaboration with WorkplaceDynamics, a national employee research and consulting firm that surveys more than one million people annually across more than 4,000 organizations. Together, they determined the region’s best workplaces based on direct employee feedback in areas such as promotion potential, organizational direction, corporate performance culture and overall connection to the company’s mission.
The San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation recently released a study that identified San Diego as the seventh most popular city among the top U.S. metro areas for technology talent and growth. Jack Henry & Associates employs 421 personnel in the San Diego area, and it is the headquarters of Symitar®, one of its three primary marketed brands.
Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics, said, “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. Oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits, but 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. Our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in the organization’s goals, how it’s going to reach them, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”
Ted Bilke, president of Symitar, stated, “We believe that a successful company is one that earns the respect and dedication of its employees, which is why we’re honored to be included in this Top Workplaces list. As a technology provider, we are proud to be a part of the booming San Diego community and to employ so many talented associates who have found the opportunity for professional growth and fulfillment at Symitar.”
