360 Named One of the "Best Places to Work" in Buffalo
360 Professional Services Group took first place honors in the Small Business category at the "Best Places to Work" awards presented by Buffalo Business First newspaper. The 8th Annual luncheon took place Thursday, March 1, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Buffalo, NY.
The finalists for Buffalo Niagara's Best Places to Work in 2012 includes 73 companies. According to the Business First website, winners will be "chosen by Quantum Workplace of Kansas using an employee engagement survey that measures how a company rates as a place to work.'
Last year, 360 was a contender for the award in the "Micro" category, with fewer than 20 employees.
360 PSG President, Joel Colombo, was extremely proud to accept the honors, stating, "This recognition means so much to me as it relates directly to my personal goal of creating a shining star company, that someday, the nation recognizes in Buffalo, NY. By growing and supporting each team member, collectively we have built something to be very proud of for ourselves, our families, and our region."
"This is a really cool award," Colombo adds, "because it is not about what we have done for others so much as what we have done for ourselves as an organization. This is about creating a place where people want to be, not have to be...I get to go to work every day thinking about what would be really cool for everyone tomorrow, and then I get to make that happen for our whole team. It makes the long, tough process of "starting up" a new company worth every ounce of midnight oil burned to get here."
Headquartered in Amherst, NY, 360 PSG continues to set standards for web development and web design in Western New York and across the country by constantly upgrading features and developing web products like the Fission Content Management System (CMS).
