Tuesday, September 8, 2020 – Edafio Technology Partners has been named to the Arkansas Business Journal’s annual list of Best Places to Work for the third consecutive year.
“At Edafio, we have built a culture that attracts, grows, and retains the industry’s brightest talent,” said Kenny Kinley, president, and CEO at Edafio. “Our associates are our most powerful asset, and it is an honor to work with a group of people who are committed to helping our clients reach their technology goals; and who are passionate about making Edafio successful.”
Arkansas Business partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.
“Edafio strives to welcome each new hire into the Edafio family from day one,” said Amy Beam, Edafio’s People Operations Manager. “Many of our clients rely on our staff as part of their own IT teams and consider them a part of their family, so being an exceptional place to work is not only important to Edafio’s growth but our clients’ success as well.”
Beam also noted that the company’s core values have attracted high-performing individuals that thrive in a fast-growth environment. Edafio’s core values also empower associates to respond to Edafio’s clients’ shifting priorities and marketplace changes.
“Having a positive and empathetic culture is everything,” said Melissa Swann, Edafio’s Marketing Director. “Our success is deeply rooted in the belief and embodiment of our core values of commitment to client success, unquestionable integrity, and a one-team approach with humility and respect in everything we do.”
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.
