Chelmsford-based IT and video surveillance company ranks #21 on the medium workplaces list in second year as a top local employer

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – November 17, 2014 – Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, today announced that it was recognized by The Boston Globe in its annual Top Places to Work magazine, which honors Massachusetts’ best employers. In its second consecutive year on the list, Axis was named #21 out of the 40 top ranked medium workplaces based on the six key factors associated with employee happiness: company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits.

“Making the list for the first time last year was a testament to our mission, culture and employees. One of our core values is ‘Think Big,’ so we took this recognition as an opportunity not just to say we’re doing something right, but to ask how can we be even better?” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “Moving up from #34 to #21 this year shows our commitment to improvement and ability to nurture a professional, yet enjoyable working environment. As a fast-growing and fast-paced company, we recognize the value in this benchmark and the importance of the employee feedback it provides to our continued growth and success both as an employer and as a business.”

Axis employees were among the 73,500 individuals from 366 companies who responded to The Boston Globe’s 2014 Top Places to Work survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics. The survey measured employee happiness indicators to identify the top companies. While companies on the Top Places to Work list address all positive workplace factors, survey subjects placed a much higher importance on employee appreciation, confidence and a meaningful connection to the work. WorkplaceDynamics also found that of all the cities surveyed, employees in Boston were most enthusiastic about their companies.

“Employer success can’t be measured solely in profits and revenue,” said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. “What matters most to employers are their people. This year’s winning companies go above and beyond to motivate and challenge their workers, which tends to encourage innovation and loyalty.”

Axis also received national recognition earlier this year with its debut at #16 on the Great Place to Work® 2014 Best Small & Medium Workplaces List. Axis has also been named a 2013 “Best Place to Work” by the Boston Business Journal. Axis currently has more than a dozen positions open in North America, having already added nearly 50 new employees in 2014. Interested employment candidates can view and apply for open positions online.
