November 18, 2012 - Accruent, LLC, a provider of software used by many of the world’s leading corporations and institutions to manage their real estate and facilities, today announced that it has been selected as one of the Austin American-Statesman’s Top Workplaces for 2012. The prestigious annual award is based on the results of employee surveys conducted by WorkplaceDynamics.
“Our experience in Austin has exceeded all expectations”, said Mark Friedman, founder and chief executive officer of Accruent, describing the company’s decision to relocate its headquarters to Austin in the fall of 2010. “Accruent is a demanding place to work. We set high standards for all team members, but we provide extensive training and career development, and we encourage everyone to offer ideas that can advance our products and bring value to our customers. We are growing fast, and everyone can see how their contribution makes a difference. I believe that’s a formula that makes work rewarding, and we’ve found Austin to be an ideal community to find the skills, aptitude and energy that our company needs.”
Most of Accruent’s Austin-based team members work in product development and customer support. According to the WorkplaceDynamics survey, some of the reasons they consider Accruent a great place to work include opportunity for professional growth, frequent and honest feedback on performance, and a culture that gives them a strong sense of connection to the company’s success.
