Fairway Technologies Named One of 2012 Best Places to Work in San Diego for Third Consecutive Year

Company recognized for outstanding employee satisfaction


San Diego, CA – July 9, 2012 – Fairway Technologies, a San Diego-based technology consulting and software development firm, today announced that it was named one of the finalists in the 2012 Best Places to Work in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal for the third consecutive year. The company was named one of the finalists in the 2011 Best Places to Work in San Diego, and the 2010 Best Places to Work in San Diego program, also.


The prestigious awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in San Diego, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2012 Best Places to Work in San Diego list is made up of 85 companies, who were all recognized for exemplary workplace environments, employer benefits and employee satisfaction.


“There are several common denominators we often see within companies earning the distinction of a “Best Place to Work” award from the San Diego Business Journal,” said Bob Baranski, Associate Publisher of the San Diego Business Journal. “First, Best Places to Work typically have excellent processes for hiring and on-boarding employees. Second, they tend to continually develop their employees. Third, there is often visionary leadership skilled in articulating the vision and driving performance. In short, the companies that are the Best Places to Work create engaged employees which translates into engaged customers.”


Detailed data gathered from an employer questionnaire and employee satisfaction surveys were analyzed by the Best Companies Group in order to select stand-out organizations. Best Companies Group was also responsible for the survey and analysis process for the Best Places to Work in San Diego program. The final rankings of the Best Places to Work in San Diego will be unveiled at an upcoming awards ceremony and in a special publication in mid-August.


“It’s great to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego for the third year in a row,” said Brett Humphrey, CEO of Fairway Technologies. “Fairway was founded on the belief that employees are what make a workplace great. When employees are happy and proud of the company they work for, they can achieve their full potential and produce top quality work for our customers. Fairway employs some of the best talent in San Diego, and we’re committed to maintaining the conspicuously awesome environment that we’ve become known for.”


Fairway Technologies promotes a fun and relaxed atmosphere and encourages employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Fairway’s generous benefits include five weeks of Personal Time Off, a 401K plan, medical and dental insurance, job training, and technical development. Additional company perks include a pet-friendly environment, frequent company activities and events, and access to the latest technology tools and resources.
