ClubSoft earns honors among 2014 Best Employers in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. -- ClubSoft was recently named as one of the 2014 Best Employers in North Carolina. The list of the Best Employers in North Carolina was created by Business North Carolina, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) - NC State Council and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program are designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in North Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2014 Best Employers in North Carolina list is made up of 30 companies.

Walk around the Raleigh ClubSoft office and you will notice that everyone is more like a family than a work group. ClubSoft focuses on creating an atmosphere that is dynamic for its employees where everyone can share their input and suggestions as well as have fun in the process. Birthday lunches and birthday gift cards, flexible work locations, casual dress code, and team happy hours are just a few perks of working for ClubSoft. "Not many people can say they enjoy going to work everyday, but I can. Each one of our team members brings something different to the table. The camaraderie makes it enjoyable. It's not uncommon to see us after hours or on weekends together," stated Amy Bagley, ClubSoft Customer Service Specialist.

The competition is open statewide to all employers with 15 winners coming from large employers and 15 winners from the small employer category. Twenty five percent of the evaluation considered the company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. Seventy five percent was determined from employee experience surveys. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in North Carolina and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

Ray McDonald, ClubSoft CEO, stated, "We believe that having fun and working hard go hand in hand. This is a true honor to be recognized as one of the top 15 employers statewide in the small company category. North Caroline is home to some of the best employers in the world and that makes this award that much more satisfying."
