LINDON, Utah, Dec. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DigiCert, Inc., a leading online security provider for many of the most recognized brands and websites in the world, for the second consecutive year has been named by Utah Business magazine as one of the Best Companies to Work For in Utah. The announcement is the latest recognition of DigiCert's efforts to create a flexible and empowering workplace, and it marks the 10th award the company has received this year.
Founded in 2003, DigiCert continues its strong, sustainable growth in 2012, in large part due to its efforts to advance internet security best practices, create an excellent workplace, and provide enhanced customer value. With virtually no employee turnover, DigiCert employs a knowledgeable, committed workforce that serves the company's clients with precision and care.
"DigiCert is honored to once again be named one of Utah's best places to work and to receive this recognition of our efforts to provide a flexible, supportive workplace and an outstanding company culture," said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. "We believe strongly that if we treat our people right, they will take care of our customers through value-added product innovation and knowledgeable, committed customer support. Our continued strong growth and employee retention tell us that we're on the right track."
In order to qualify for the award, businesses are rated on various categories, including employee benefits, work-life balance, and executive leadership. Companies are scored not only based on information they provide but also according to the results of anonymous surveys completed by their employees.
DigiCert supports its employees and their dependents in many ways including competitive compensation, performance-based bonuses and wellness benefits that promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle. An active supporter of the community, DigiCert encourages its employees to give back through company-wide service projects, an extra day of personal time off for volunteer work, and an extra holiday bonus to donate to a charity of their choice.
Earlier this year, DigiCert was also recognized for its workplace practices with the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Workplace Excellence and Flexibility, a national honor handed out to just a few local companies. Additionally, the Utah Department of Workforce Services recognized DigiCert in recent weeks with the Work/Life Award, acknowledging for the second straight year the company's efforts to help its employees live healthy, balanced lives.
