San Francisco, CA—June 26, 2018—Swift Navigation, a San Francisco-based tech firm building centimeter-accurate GPS technology to power a world of autonomous vehicles, today announced that the company has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the Bay Area News Group (BANG). The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly Workplace Dynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few. Swift Navigation was ranked #1 in BANG’s 2018 small business category.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
The executive team at Swift Navigation works tirelessly to ensure an uplifting and engaging environment for its employees at all levels.
“We prioritize company-wide engagement and satisfaction,” said Timothy Harris, Co-Founder and CEO of Swift Navigation. “As part of Swift Navigation’s core value of “Default to Open,” we maintain accessible lines of communication throughout the organization and ensure every employee is an integral part of the process, ensuring their investment in the success of the company.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey added. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
