Bellevue, WA - June 28, 2007 - Construx Software was named today as the best small company to work for in Washington state by Washington CEO magazine. The judges cited Construx's leadership, openness, collaborative management, and extraordinary benefits in presenting the award. Construx scored tops among small companies. Its score also bested the top scores in the "large company"and "medium company"categories. Construx was also awarded perfect scores in all 10 categories by the Best Companies judging panel, the only company to receive perfect scores.
Construx's CEO, Steve McConnell, said, "We work with many top companies to help them refine their software practices and attract and retain top software and management talent. For Construx to receive top scores this year shows that we practice what we preach. Many excellent companies were represented this year, and that makes it even more gratifying to receive first place honors."
Mark Nygren, Construx's COO, commented, "Employee satisfaction has always been at the top of the list of our priorities. We hire the most capable people we can find, and then we empower them to do great work. We survey our staff periodically and monitor trends so that we catch any emerging problems early. We also maintain open lines of communication. The results of this survey aren't really a surprise to us, and it's a fantastic confirmation that we're on the right track."
Washington CEO initiated the annual Best Companies to Work For event 16 years ago to find and spotlight companies that represent workplace excellence in areas ranging from communication and leadership to rewards and recognition.
