Baltimore, Maryland – December 5, 2016 – Audacious Inquiry (Ai) has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Baltimore Sun. 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. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“Oftentimes, people assume The Top Workplaces award is all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “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. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
To Chris Brandt, Managing Partner at Ai, this award validates the company’s objective of scaling the business while preserving the positive culture. “We hire people who not only exemplify the specific skills we are looking for, but also embody our core values. As a B-Corp, our organization is committed to more than just our bottom line—we are passionate about improving health IT across the country, and our employees find fulfillment out of helping others.” He proceeded, “Aside from being leaders in our industry and within the Maryland business community, it’s humbling to see how despite rapid growth and increased visibility, our team continues to work together to achieve common goals.”
In 2016, Ai hired 17 people, which comes out to 25% growth for the year, as of December 1. For the past six years, the company has been recognized on the INC 5000 list, a compilation by Inc. Magazine of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. 2017 is looking bright, as Ai continues to expand their reach by adding more people to their team to support product development and provide customer support.
