Newly Transformed Compuware Named a "2015 Top Workplace" by the Detroit Free Press

DETROIT, Nov. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation, the world's leading mainframe-dedicated software company, has been named one of Michigan's Top 100 Workplaces by the Detroit Free Press.

Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The 22-question survey measured the fundamentals of the company including values, execution, leadership and culture. The questions asked surround organizational health, execution and connection.

"This honor is a tremendous validation of the new Compuware," said Compuware CEO Chris O'Malley. "We have achieved so much in the last year. We are earning back customers, our financial results have greatly improved and our employees are happy, engaged and inspired. It's a great time for Compuware and I couldn't be more proud of our staff and all they've accomplished. Look for great things to continue to come from Compuware."

"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together." Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."

Compuware was also named one of "Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA) in September.

Compuware provides comprehensive medical and dental plans, company-paid life and disability insurance, flexible work arrangements and 401k. The company actively works to support its employees' work/life balance by offering resources such as worldwide wellness programs, dependent- and elder-care reimbursement accounts, an employee referral program, and much more. Employees who work at or visit Compuware's Detroit headquarters enjoy an onsite gourmet cafeteria; commuter assistance program; state-of-the art wellness and child development centers; a physician and chiropractor office; dry cleaning services as well as access to onsite retailers and restaurants.
