ECI Software Solutions among 2024's Great Places to Work in six nations
Fri, 19th Jan 2024

ECI Software Solutions, the globally recognised provider of cloud-based business management software and services, is delighted to announce its accreditation as a 2024 Great Place to Work. This certification encompasses six countries in which the company operates: the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Australia, and the Netherlands. Already a quintessential feat, it marks the sixth consecutive year for the US, third consecutive year for Canada, the UK, Belgium, and Australia, and second for the Netherlands.

Comprehensive anonymous employee surveys form the basis of this distinguished acknowledgement. The Great Place To Work certification comes from the internationally authoritative source on workplace culture – the Great Place to Work Institute. The Institute evaluates and recognises those workplaces that demonstrate market-leading revenue generation, high employee retention, and progressive innovation.

Andrew Pryor, ECI Software Solutions' Chief Human Resources Officer, stated, "Being named a Great Place to Work is a major accomplishment, so to continue receiving this honour year after year in six different countries is truly meaningful and validates the work we've done to create a positive environment. Not only are we committed to investing in our team's experience to keep talented individuals at ECI, but we're also working to ensure our colleagues are empowered to grow fulfilling careers and better their lives—for themselves and their families."

Firmly embedded within ECI's DNA are its core organisational values: crave greatness, own the outcome, deliver awesome, embrace community – aptly codenamed 'CODE'. ECI honours these values with several employee-centric programmes, including the ECI Cares Program which allows employees to confidentially apply for financial assistance, the Community Heartbeat Program which supports employees' social causes, and ECI's Global Well-Being Day which encourages staff to focus on their mental and physical health.

Trevor Gruenewald, Chief Executive Officer at ECI Software Solutions, remarked, "Above anything else, the people at ECI are passionate and dedicated to their work inside and outside the office. The Great Place to Work certification is an honour and a reminder to keep listening to feedback and keep advocating for each other. I am incredibly grateful to be part of this team and thank them all for helping to make ECI a Great Place to Work."

Great Place to Work research findings present substantial evidence of the benefits associated with this recognition. Job seekers are reportedly 4.5 times more likely to find an excellent boss at a Certfied workplace. Furthermore, employees at these workplaces are 93 per cent more likely to look forward to attending work and twice as likely to be remunerated fairly, earn a fair share of the company's profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.

ECI Software Solutions and Great Place to Work, through groundbreaking research and data, are jointly committed to helping every workplace evolve into a great working environment for all its employees.
