OptConnect, a longtime leader in managed wireless services, today announced that they have been named a Best Company to Work For by Utah Business Magazine for the second year in a row. The award is given to companies who have the highest rankings across multiple workplace elements based 100% on employee feedback surveys. Employees are asked to rate things such as benefits and pay, fairness and opportunities, corporate culture, internal communication, and employee pride.

“I am so incredibly proud that OptConnect has received such recognition for who we are as a workplace and as a culture,” said President and CEO Chris Baird. “It’s a top priority for our leadership team to ensure that our employees are taken care of from all aspects. We pride ourselves on providing a flexible and creative workplace where employees want to come to work every day where they feel valued and empowered to make a difference.”

In addition to providing great benefits and compensation, OptConnect also provides innovative perks like fitness activity reimbursements, employee engagement contests, 5- and 10-year anniversary rewards, company movie days, free Friday lunches, fully stocked breakroom, volunteer opportunities, and more. These benefits and perks also got the company recent recognition as a Top Workplace by the Salt Lake Tribune.

“Each December, we put together our “Best Companies To Work For” list and deciding on those companies is a very intensive process,” said Elle Griffin, Editor-in-Chief at Utah Business Magazine. “Each company that participates (and we get hundreds of applicants each year) has to have 80 percent of its employees fill out an anonymous survey ranking their company on a number of factors. Reading the surveys is very telling and the companies who win are the ones who go above and beyond for their employees.”

Winners will be honored at a VIP event at the University of Utah on December 4th as well as a luncheon at the Grand America on Thursday, December 10th.
