Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HighQ, a global leader in software as a service collaboration and content management solutions for data security, compliance and regulated enterprises, announced today it has been recognized as a Best Places to Work for its team dynamics, leadership and other strengths as an employer.
HighQ, which caught the attention of the business community when it established its North American headquarters in Kansas City earlier this year, was selected by the Kansas City Business Journal as a Best Places to Work in Kansas City with the added distinction of being named the first-place winner in its class at a luncheon hosted to recognize the honorees.
The Business Journal selected honorees based on results of a survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which polled each company’s employees and used a proprietary algorithm to determine the top-scoring companies. HighQ stood out for its perks, employee satisfaction and culture of communication, among other strengths.
“We are a company that advises clients on the value of collaboration, which is something that we are proud to practice as well as preach,” said Paul Hunt, HighQ’s chief revenue officer. “We are fortunate to have an international team that is passionate in the same way as we work to help clients drive digital transformation, innovation and engagement in their own businesses.
“The characteristics that set HighQ apart are our highly competitive benefits, as well as our inclusive culture and the transparency among our management team,” Hunt added.
The Business Journal recognized HighQ for its strong performance – the company grew at a rate of 40 percent year over year and added more than 150 employees – which is attributed to the trust its clients place in its technology as well as its professional team.
“As part of our people strategy, we introduced leadership and management training globally, to ensure our people managers are equipped with the best skills necessary to engage with people and understand how different demographics in our company can affect engagement,” Hunt told the Business Journal. “Our training program covers topics such as emotional intelligence, the power of empowerment and mentoring, to ensure our managers recognize all employees have different talents, skills and experiences and the awareness that people need to be managed individually.”
The company’s strength as a Best Places to Work is something that HighQ intends to protect as it continues in its mission to deliver leading-edge software to the world’s largest law firms, investment banks and corporations.
“We will work hard to maintain our company culture of honesty, respect and transparency by embedding our core company values in everything we do,” Hunt said. “We will stay up to date with the latest engagement trends and seek to continuously improve and adopt best practices as we continue to grow our teams globally.”
