Growing technology company with over 25% of all employees referred by current team members
Philadelphia, PA – June 26, 2020 – Goliath Technologies, a leader in end user experience monitoring and troubleshooting software, announced today that it was selected as a winner of the Philadelphia Business Journal’s 2020 Healthiest Employers Award that celebrates the healthiest workplaces in the Philadelphia area and recognizes those companies that make employee wellness an integral part of their corporate mission.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made employee health the top priority for companies across the Greater Philadelphia area. As businesses prepare for an eventual and re-imagined return to the workplace, the physical and mental well-being of employees is paramount.
“We are in the people business. We just happen to sell software. People come up with the ideas, turn them into workable products, market, sell, and then support those customers on an ongoing basis,” says Thomas Charlton, CEO and Chairman at Goliath Technologies. “As an organization we will only be successful if we focus on our team members. We recognize that fact and have developed programs to advance the careers of our employees. With over 25% of employees being referred by current team members and over 35% promoted to positions with higher compensation and more responsibility, I think we are on the right track. It proves you can take your financial and career goals seriously without sacrificing your personal life.”
Goliath’s culture is focused on driving high performance and passion for solving IT challenges with software. The company believes in attracting, appreciating, rewarding, and retaining the best people by continually developing professional skills, advancing careers, and promoting teamwork and success. Throughout the mandated remote working situation, due to COVID-19, Goliath continues to communicate and gather for weekly virtual trainings and social events to ensure all employees have what they need and to foster conversations and connections.
Since implementing its wellness resources, as well as recognition and career setting programs, Goliath has reduced attrition and attracted top talent in the industry with the recent hires of Donna Grare, Stacy Leidwinger, and Karen Armor to its executive team. “I’ve never been more proud of our team, watching what Goliath can do collectively during the COVID-19 crisis. With our determination and tenacity to fight forward and rise to the occasion together we have come out even stronger and I’m excited to see what the future holds for all of us,” said Charlton.
