Telecom Management Leader, vCom Solutions, Ranked in Best Places to Work

April 15, 2013

vCom Solutions, a leader in telecom expense management, announced its sixth consecutive year to be ranked in the Best Places To Work in the Bay Area, conducted and published by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal.

The company was ranked number seventeen out of companies with 25-50 Bay Area-based employees with an overall satisfaction score of 93.5%. A total of 125 companies were recognized in the 2013 Awards. The rankings were based on scores obtained from a survey of the companies’ Bay Area employees. The surveys measured worker satisfaction across a number of areas including alignment with goals, trust with co-workers, trust in senior leaders, and employee benefits.

“Being ranked in the Best Places to Work in our size category for six years in a row is an honor and a reflection of amazing people,” says Isabel Fergadiotis, VP of Human Resources for vCom. “Our talented team always focuses on the needs of the customer, and in turn we provide an employee-centered culture, constantly striving to increase engagement and collaboration.”

vCom has built a positive and enabling company culture through what it does both inside and outside its walls. The small, tight-knit team undertakes community service projects together, and strives to keep that “common goal” mentality in everything it does.

“Management shows tremendous care and concern regarding employees and the community,” says Jenifer Frey, Vice President of Customer Experience at vCom, “and I think that translates into employees aiming high and achieving ambitious goals.” This attitude also results in extremely low employee turnover, and achievement of such goals as being named a Certified Green Business.

“It is very exciting and gratifying to place on the list year after year, and I am so proud of the vCom team for this accomplishment.” said Gary Storm, Founder and CEO of vCom.
