Columbia, SC - Managed IT and cybersecurity services provider VC3 is Great Place to Work Certified™ in both Canada and the US. These national designations are the result of responses to an anonymous survey that gathered employee thoughts and feelings about their workplace culture and compared them with indicators of workplace satisfaction.
The comments that VC3 employees included in their responses reflect the values that contribute to their overall employment experience. These are things like work-life balance, opportunities for growth, and management transparency.
“We understand that a great employee experience is made up of more than just pay and benefits,” said Ryan Vestby, CEO of VC3. “We want people to succeed in their jobs and for them to feel that their contributions are appreciated and valued. I think that shows up in the responses we received on the survey.”
With nearly 600 people working from a mix of onsite and remote locations, VC3 employees have strong ties to their regional teams while having access to all of the capabilities of their coworkers across North America. At the same time, clients appreciate having a local IT team and recognize the benefits that come from being part of a larger entity.
Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues.
"Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What's more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency," Fonseca said.
VC3 has a long history of being recognized as an employer of choice. The South Carolina headquarters was on the “Best Places to Work” list from 2010 – 2020. Then the company became eligible for the “Great Places to Work” national list because of its expanded geography and has been on that list for three consecutive years. This is the company’s debut on the “Great Places to Work” list in Canada.
