Axis Communications was ranked number 41 out of 100 on the 2018 list of the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in the United States by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of employee on-the-job experiences in order to determine its rankings.
Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Axis participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great work place: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
As part of the review process, Axis is also “Great Rated” by the Great Place to Work Institute. According to an employee survey conducted in 2018, 97 percent of employees say their workplace is great, while 100 percent take great pride in working at Axis.
“Our success as a company is a direct result of our culture and core values which are embraced by our employees,” said Vice President of Americas at Axis Fredrik Nilsson. “Recognition as a great place to work speaks to the efforts we make throughout all levels of the organization to maintain our culture of innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurism even as we grow. It’s an honor to receive this award and it is a true testimony to our people and their efforts.”
With a diverse global workforce spanning sales, marketing, technical support and other corporate functions, Axis offers a wide range of professional experiences, opportunities and benefits, including career development, comprehensive benefits, a positive culture, work-life balance and on-site amenities.
“When it comes to growth and innovation, the 2018 Best Small and Medium Workplaces continue to outperform their peers, making these companies more competitive and helping them secure their position in the marketplace,” said CEO of Great Place to Work Michael Bush. “What these companies do differently than their peers is that they offer a great workplace for all employees.”
In 2018, Axis completed their U.S. Expansion Plan and now has eight Axis Experience Centers (AECs) in North America. Locations include Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Toronto, Mexico City, Washington, DC and the North American headquarters in Chelmsford, Mass.
