Company culture and innovative workforce make Axis one of the top workplaces in the United States

Axis Communications, the global leader in network video, was named one of the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces in the United States by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. Axis ranked #41 on the list of top 100 medium companies. The companies on the list have built a high-trust culture that engages employees and drives better business. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of employee on-the-job experiences in order to determine its rankings.

Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Axis participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

As part of the review process, Axis is also “Great Rated” by the Great Place to Work Institute. According to an employee survey conducted in 2018, 97 percent of employees say their workplace is great, while 100 percent take great pride in working at Axis.

“Our success as a company is a direct result of our culture and core values which are embraced by our employees,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “Recognition as a Great Place to Work speaks to the efforts we make throughout all levels of the organization to maintain our culture of innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurism even as we grow. It’s an honor to receive this award and is a true testimony to our people and their efforts.”

Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
