Cipher has been named the 2018 Top Workplace for Work/Life Flexibility by The Baltimore Sun Media Group. This is Cipher’s first year participating in the Top Workplaces survey and in addition to winning the Work/Life Flexibility award, Cipher ranked 16th out of 85 small companies recognized as Top Workplaces in the Baltimore region.
The list of Top Workplaces is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), 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.
“Cipher has been honored to receive many awards over the years but recognition as a 2018 Top Workplace is a special accomplishment for us,” said Peter Grimm, CEO of Cipher. “I am grateful for each and every member of our team whose commitment to our core values make Cipher the best place each of us has ever worked.”
“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 culture at Cipher is built on a foundation of the core values of Collaboration, Innovation, People, Humor, Ethics, and Results. Employees are invited to join the Culture Action Team and the Cipher League to contribute to the positive culture on an ongoing basis and seek out new ways to uphold the Cipher core values.
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
In 2018, Cipher has also received the 2018 Corporate Culture Award from CEO Report, and was named to KMWorld Magazine’s list of Top 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management.
