The corrected release reads:
GLOBOFORCE HONOURED AS ONE OF THE BEST WORKPLACES IN EUROPE
Ranked in the top 50, Globoforce celebrated by employees for its culture of recognition
Globoforce® (www.globoforce.com), the leading provider of social recognition solutions, today announced that it was named as one of the Best Workplaces in Europe 2014 by the Great Place To Work® Institute. Announced at an awards ceremony held at the Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel in Rome on Thursday 5th June, Globoforce was ranked number 50 out of the top 100 companies in Europe in the medium-sized workplace category. This follows Globoforce being named as the number three workplace in Ireland by the Great Place to Work Institute as well as the number twenty-five workplace on the list in the United States.
“Being consistently named to the Great Place to Work lists in Europe and the US is a testament to the power of thanks and Globoforce’s culture of recognition. This culture is the driving force behind our success as a company and how we deliver the best recognition programs in the world, including our own,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “We congratulate our fellow companies on the list and applaud their shared dedication to a positivity-infused workplace.”
“The Great Workplace Era is a time when all people can expect to work for an organisation where they trust their leaders, enjoy their colleagues and take pride in what they do. A time, in other words, when workplaces make the world better,” says China Gorman, global CEO of Great Place to Work. “This era is arriving in Europe and other parts of the globe. And it’s good news for everyone.”
The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the policies and practices in place in organisations under nine key areas: inspiring, speaking, listening, caring, developing, thanking, hiring, celebrating and sharing. These practices are benchmarked against other organisations in that country. The second key component of the assessment is an anonymous ‘Trust Index survey’ that gathers the perceptions of employees under five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open ended comments from employees.

This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
