MIAMI-(BUSINESS WIRE)-MotionPoint Corporation was recently named one of Florida's Best Companies to Work For. MotionPoint, a strategic partner to Fortune 500 companies and leading global brands, helps firms penetrate markets at home and abroad by translating and optimising their websites for specific audiences - driving website traffic, conversions, and sales growth worldwide.
MotionPoint is amongst the 100 companies recognised in the second annual statewide "Best Companies" list, which appears in the August issue of Florida Trend and on www.FloridaTrend.com. The company is listed in the "Best Midsized Companies 2010" category.
"We are honored to be recognised as one of Florida's 'Best Companies to Work For' and reaffirm our dedication to 'MotionPointers', who have been integral to our success since the company was established in 2000," said co-founder and chief executive officer Will Fleming. "We're proud of our ability to attract, cultivate and retain top talent, and are always looking for the best and brightest minds to join our growing team."
MotionPoint's staff of approximately 100 professionals from around the globe includes technologists, linguists, online marketers and salespeople. As part of MotionPoint's commitment to its employees, it has developed and implemented innovative training programs. Every year, almost every employee receives an average of 350 on-site training hours in a broad range of areas including technical skills, client service and emerging industry trends.
The Best Companies to Work For in Florida programme was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group, and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. "Companies that retain the best employees with strong workplace programs are frequently the very same companies that serve their clients exceptionally well," Florida Trend Publisher Andrew Corty said. "It's our pleasure to recognise these great companies and encourage others to join them in building Florida's competitive advantage."
To be considered for participation, companies or government entities must employ at least 15 workers in Florida and be at least one year old. Companies that participated in the Best Companies to Work For underwent a two-part survey process. The first part involved evaluating workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. The second involved an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. Combined survey scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings. Companies were not required to pay participation fees to complete the online assessment process.
"The surveys show that whilst employees like 'bells and whistles' types of benefits, the companies that make the list all are very good at the basics - especially at communicating with their employees and offering training and opportunities to work creatively," said Mark Howard, executive editor of Florida Trend.
