NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continuity, the compliance automation provider for community financial institutions, has been named to the Hartford Business Journal's 2015 Best Places to Work in Connecticut list.
The Best Places to Work list honors companies that are ranked highest in employee satisfaction, as determined by a survey administered through the Best Companies Group. Companies from across the state submitted for the list, but only 35 were selected.
"We're thrilled to be recognized as one of the best places to work in Connecticut for 2015," said Andy Greenawalt, Continuity's co-founder and CEO. "This award highlights the incredibly talented team we have put together. We're extremely proud of Continuity's growth this past year, and this is really a testament to the passion our people have in working with our clients to help reduce the burden of regulatory compliance."
In the last 18 months, Continuity has seen close to 300 percent revenue growth, added over 100 new clients and doubled their employee count.
"With our offices so close to Yale's campus, we've got a great opportunity here in New Haven to recruit exceptionally talented and experienced people," Greenawalt said. "From cloud technologists to regulatory compliance experts, we make a point of investing in our people as much as they invest in Continuity. We're striving to create a Silicon Valley, entrepreneurial environment here in New Haven."
In addition to the "Best Places to Work" award, in 2014 Continuity closed a $10 million funding round, which was double the funding the company was originally seeking. Last year the firm was also recognized by Gartner as a "Cool Vendor in Services" and named a Preferred Service Provider by the Independent Community Bankers Association.
