The San Diego Union-Tribune Recognizes Jack Henry & Associates as a Top Workplace

December 07, 2017

San Diego, Calif., – Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Today the company announced that it has been named one of the 2017 Top Workplaces in the San Diego area by The San Diego Union-Tribune for the second consecutive year. Jack Henry & Associates ranked No. 4 in the Large Companies category, up from No. 19 in the Midsized Companies category last year. 

The San Diego Union-Tribune worked with national employee research and consulting firm Energage, previously WorkplaceDynamics, to distribute confidential employee surveys to the region’s nominated companies to determine the top workplaces. The final list was based on direct employee feedback in areas such as promotion potential, organizational direction, corporate performance culture, and overall connection to the company’s mission. One of Jack Henry & Associates’ three primary brands, Symitar, is headquartered in the San Diego, and the company employs more than 400 professionals in the area.  

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Ted Bilke, president of Symitar, stated, “At Symitar, we strive to create a workplace that not only perpetuates a positive culture, but that challenges our employees to continually grow in both their personal and professional lives. We’re honored to be included on this list for the second year in a row, as it reflects our commitment to people, and our belief that our employees are key to the overall success of our organization.”

Jack Henry & Associates was recognized in the Large Companies category; the categories are designated each year by Energage based on the number of people employed in the geographic area. Each company must have at least 50 local employees to participate. This year, Energage analyzed responses from more than 12,000 employees to determine the rankings.
