The Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) is celebrating its designation as a Great Place to Work® by a global authority in workplace culture. GTA earned the recognition for the third consecutive year.
The prestigious award is based entirely on what employees say about their experience working at GTA. This year's survey of current employees noted flexibility, opportunities, culture, and colleagues as strengths for the organization:
92 percent say that GTA is a great place to work;
96 percent say they can take time off work when they think it's necessary;
98 percent say that when you join GTA, you are made to feel welcome;
92 percent say they feel good about the way GTA contributes to the community;
94 percent say they are offered training or development to further themselves professionally; and
94 percent say people at GTA are given a lot of responsibility.
"We are gratified that our team members continue to regard GTA so positively," said Shawnzia Thomas, Georgia CIO and GTA executive director. "We also take seriously the constructive insights and observations offered in the survey. They will help to shape ongoing improvements within our organization."
Great Place to Work® certification isn't something that comes easily; it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience, said Tamara Mosley, director of human resources at GTA. "It's the only official recognition determined by employees' reports of their organization's culture. Our goal for GTA is not just to be a great place to work but to be the best place any employee has ever worked."
