iland Named a Top Workplace by The Houston Chronicle

Award recognizes iland for dynamic working environment and positive culture

HOUSTON – Nov. 10, 2016 – iland has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Houston Chronicle, ranking 20th out of 70 organizations in the small business category. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. A number of aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.

iland, a Houston-based cloud hosting and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service company, has been a hub of innovation in the local and global technology market for more 20 years. Bringing together the best talent, exceptional service offerings and a dynamic and fun work environment has been paramount to its ongoing success. This honor represents a validation of the efforts of the leadership team to create a culture that attracts, nurtures and retains iland’s strong team.

“We are delighted to receive this award from The Houston Chronicle,” said Scott Sparvero, CEO of iland. “At iland, we’re growing rapidly and hiring continuously, always looking for the very best technical, business, and executive talent. The markets for cloud and disaster recovery solutions are exploding, and we’re proud to be a leading provider of both to customers around the world, while remaining rooted in the local Houston technology community.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest, nor is it about fancy perks and benefits.” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. Who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and 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 sense of connection that everyone is in it together.”
