Collaborative Team Culture Helps Allied Win Best in Biz Silver Award for “Best Place to Work”

If you want happy customers you have to start with happy employees. That’s a core belief of Allied Telecom Group, a silver winner for “Best Place to Work” in the 2014 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized for our company culture,” said Allied President & CEO Ken Williams. “We truly believe that providing the best possible client experience results directly from providing the best possible work environment for our employees and I’m honored to accept this award on behalf of Allied’s talented and hardworking staff.”

As a single source provider of Internet, Data Transport, Voice and Unified Communications services to businesses across the Washington DC Metro Area, Allied’s priority is providing an exceptional client experience – a goal that is achieved by hiring passionate, smart employees and keeping them motivated with an empowering corporate culture.

Allied offers employees a range of perks to keep employees healthy, connected, and giving back. Many employees work flexible hours and have robust remote work options. To reward for exceptional work, employees can give each other virtual merit badges, some of which have associated online Amazon gift cards. The Allied Give Back program offers incentives and matching for volunteering and donations, as well as various company-wide charitable events sponsored throughout the year. Access to an in-building gym and wellness contests such as a spring Biggest Loser Competition and a fall “Count Your Steps Contest” emphasize healthy lifestyles. Allied also plans events year-round centered on socializing, recognition, and team building, such as Quarterly department-hosted Potlucks and the annual “Allied Fest” company picnic.

Allied has experienced a lot of growth in recent years, but the company still operates with a team mindset that each employee, no matter their job title, contributes to the overall client experience.

“Allied believes in making an investment in our people,” said Allied’s CFO Kathy Moore. “We strive to provide a collaborative environment with highly engaged employees who are rewarded for delivering an exceptional client experience.”

For the fourth annual Best in Biz awards program in North America, more than 550 nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada across 60 categories for companies, departments, executives and products.
