Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, has been named one of Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work for 2014. The annual award honors companies creating the most enjoyable and meaningful work environments, based on anonymous employee surveys collected from over 300 companies in and around the Boston area. This award continues a breakout year for Actifio, which has already included a $100M financing round valuing the company at over $1B, and the introduction of ‘Actifio Sky’, a new software-only product family initially targeting the cloud and remote office environments.
“This award means a lot to us as a company, and much more to me personally,” said Ash Ashutosh, Actifio Founder & CEO. “From the beginning we’ve focused on bringing a team of the very best people together in an environment which would enable them to excel individually, win together, and have some fun along the way. We subscribe to the old adage that your users can only be as happy as your employees, and see this as a win for both our people and our customers.”
Actifio delivers copy data virtualization to hundreds of global enterprise customers and service provider partners in more than 30 countries around the world. Its Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology decouples data from infrastructure, enabling dramatic improvements in business resiliency, agility, and mobility into the cloud. Actifio replaces siloed data management applications with a radically simple, application-centric, SLA-driven approach that lets customers capture data from production applications, manage it more economically, and use it when and where they need to. The company now has 300 employees, and manages over 1 Exabyte of application data in 32 countries.
To attract the top, engineering, sales, marketing, and services talent, Actifio offers employees competitive benefits, including:
- Flexible working schedules
- Discounts on outside vendor partners including financial services, fitness clubs and retail stores.
- Industry leading health care plans at low premiums and paid deductible.
- Short-Term and Long-Term Disability insurance, along with vision, dental and life.
- 401k plan.
- A very active schedule of social events in and out of the office, centered on Actifians passion for cooking, cycling, local sports, cross-fit and other family-friendly activities.
“Our Best Places to Work event will again recognize the importance of cultivating a great workplace culture as a competitive advantage," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal. "Companies on our list can be justifiably proud of creating a high level of workplace satisfaction during an economy where traditional rewards like big raises and bonuses aren't as easy to give. In good times and in bad, our results validate how the creation of the right corporate culture can create powerful business advantages. Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than just business.”
The Boston Business Journal evaluated winners based on the results of an employee survey administered by Quantum Workplace which evaluated everything from team effectiveness and retention to employee alignment with company goals and trust in senior leaders.
