IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – April 26, 2016 – Zumasys, a leading provider of cloud computing solutions for business critical applications and customized ERP systems, is thrilled to announce that consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have named the company #1 on the country’s 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back.
In 2012 Zumasys launched Happyness is a Choice, a unique program which was designed to encourage team members to find the true meaning in their work. What started with a simple goal of donating 1% of revenues to non-profits has evolved into a culture firmly rooted in both volunteering and giving to those in need. Building on the company’s International Travel Incentive, team members have recently volunteered in Romania, Zambia and Panama and formed deep personal connections along the way. To date, Zumasys has donated more than $750,000 and has helped nearly 300 non-profits and individuals in need.
“Our goal is to put smiles on the faces of our employees, our customers and partners as well as people in our communities who could use a lift,” says Zumasys President Paul Giobbi. “By setting aside a portion of every customer dollar spent on our cloud, infrastructure and software solutions, our Happyness is a Choice team is literally changing lives and connecting people in new and meaningful ways.”
In addition to granting 20 hours a year of paid time-off for volunteering, Happyness is a Choice actively encourages departmental volunteering and challenging each other to learn how they can use their strengths to serve.
“The Best Workplaces for Giving Back demonstrate more than just a commitment to charity,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president at Great Place to Work®. “These organizations have earned employees’ admiration by involving staffers in their community service efforts and contributing resources in ways that genuinely reflect their unique cultures.”
Zumasys and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. Employees rated their sense that they make a difference in their jobs, the meaningfulness of their work, and the impact they feel their organizations make in the community. The list also took into account company programs and an analysis of anonymous employee comments about their workplaces.
