Construx Named one of Washington State's Best Companies to Work for for the Fourth Time

Washington CEO Magazine Names Construx One of the State’s Best Companies to Work For a Fourth Time


Bellevue, WA - May 10, 2007 - Construx Software was named today as a finalist in Washington CEO magazine's survey of Best Companies to Work For in Washington. This is the fourth time that Construx has received this recognition from Washington CEO magazine.

Construx's CEO, Steve McConnell, said, "We have always strived to provide a superb work environment and an unmatched benefits package so that we can attract and retain the best talent available. We are pleased to receive this recognition from Washington CEO magazine, and the real reward is having a voluntary turnover of zero in most years, that is to say, retaining our excellent staff."

Asked what makes Construx unique, Paul Donovan, Construx's Director of Business Development, noted, "I think the enlightened approach to management taken by Steve McConnell and Mark Nygren (our COO) has been so successful and so different from any place that I've ever worked that I hope that other CEO's get to learn from what they've accomplished here. They hire the right people and trust them to do the right thing. The result is that none of the senior team has left in the last seven years. I have never seen a company that does as good a job of living up to its stated values."

First place finishers in each category will be announced June 28, 2007, at a reception at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle.
