Los Angeles – August 8, 2017 —Velocify®, the leading sales acceleration platform, today announced it has been recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group as one of one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles for the sixth time.

“We are humbled to receive this kind of recognition, especially since it is based on the experiences of the people who deeply impact Velocify’s success — our employees,” said Velocify CEO Nick Hedges. ”Our company is full of collaborative problem solvers, ready to crack the most amazing, complicated, and strategic challenges for our customers. It’s gratifying to be reminded that these smart, passionate people feel empowered to drive their own success and contribute to our team to achieve amazing results.”
The awards program, now in its 11th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who provide voluntary feedback on their jobs and work environment.

According to employee feedback, Velocify is a company where you can make a difference, feel appreciated, and be surrounded by talented and hardworking people dedicated to making the company a success. Velocify also offers employee benefits and perks, including a generous reward structure, work-hard-play-hard mentality, supportive environment, and social events.

“This award is a testament to our ongoing commitment to creating a differentiated employee experience that defines the Velocify culture,” said Tiffany Chelsvig, Velocify’s vice president of people and IT. “We have built a high-performing organization based on five core values: Customer Delight, Empathy, Fearlessness, Empowerment, and Ownership. These core values are reflected daily in how we take care of our customers and employees. Providing unique development opportunities, competitive compensation plans, and programs to improve well-being are just part of our employee value proposition.”

Velocify’s Dynamic Culture

Velocify has become a sought after environment among LA’s top technology talent, thanks largely to a thoughtful culture that celebrates wins, champions customers, and provides opportunities for just plain fun at events like the annual family day and weekly social hours.

Velocify is one of the best physical locations to work in Los Angeles as well, with an office only two miles from the beach and an unparalleled 360 degree view. On site, there are bikes to borrow and ride, an outdoor basketball court, yoga classes, and gym access.
And empathy isn’t just limited to inside the company’s four walls. Fueled by a passion to create a better world, an employee-led “Velocify Cares” committee regularly looks for ways to make a difference in the company’s local community. An all-volunteer team recently assembled 1,500 food kits for needy families in the area.

Velocify is always on the lookout for smart, energized, team players who relish solving interesting business challenges. If this sounds like you, let us know!

The Best Employers in Los Angeles

The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

Companies with at least 15 employees in Los Angeles entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
