Insight is No. 23 on Fortune’s ‘Best Workplaces in Technology’

Tempe-based Insight Enterprises, the global systems integrator helping organizations of all sizes manage and transform their business, has been honored as the No. 23 company on the 2019 Best Workplaces in Technology list by Fortune and Great Place to Work.

To determine the list, Great Place to Work analyzed responses representing more than 220,000 employees working in the U.S. tech industry. Employees responded to more than 60 survey questions, anonymously rating their employers based on their experiences of trust and reaching their full potential within their organization, no matter their role. The survey also assessed employees’ daily experiences with innovation, their company’s values and the effectiveness of their leaders.

“Our teammates’ high regard for Insight reaffirms our belief that the most meaningful investment we make is in our teammates,” said Ken Lamneck, Insight president and CEO. “Great ideas translate into real value when everyone has the hunger to learn, teach and lead, taking pride in what we can collectively achieve through the power of technology.”

Insight rated highly on the Great Place to Work survey in areas of leadership effectiveness and innovation:

• 82% of Insight teammates said the company maintains an environment that fosters new and better ways of providing value and responding to unexpected market changes, an indicator that the business will be “healthy tomorrow,” the survey said.

• 85% said company leaders’ behavior positively resonates with the overall business strategy and Insight’s values of hunger, heart and harmony. Consistently positive experiences recognized by employees was noted as a “key differentiator among the best workplaces,” according to Great Place to Work.

• The company continues to expand its Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™, with a purpose of helping businesses run smarter to optimize employee and customer experiences through its Cloud + Data Center Transformation, Connected Workforce, Digital Innovation, and Supply Chain Optimization solution areas.

“The companies featured on the 2019 Best Workplaces in Technology list offer dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These companies create cultures that invite all employees to innovate, creating a competitive edge for their businesses and helping to realize the unique potential of each individual.”

The Best Workplaces in Technology list is one of a series of rankings of Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations based on employee feedback to Fortune and Great Place to Work. Insight also was named last month as a 2018 Best Workplace for Diversity.

“The demand for personalized experiences in business is forcing organizations to change how they operate and engage teammates and clients. Leveraging technology to help meet those expectations in more powerful yet efficient ways lies at the heart of what we do, which is why recognitions like this that celebrate how we empower people to work smarter and be at their best are so meaningful to Insight,” said Steve Dodenhoff, president, Insight North America.
