ESPOO, Finland - May 23, 2018 - Rovio Entertainment, in partnership with its licensing and brand management agency, Evolution, has unveiled a sweeping program of premier licensing partnerships in North America for its flagship Angry Birds franchise. This extensive line-up of new, renewed and ongoing deals, uniting a diverse array of retail product manufacturers and categories, represents the next step forward for the Angry Birds brand, further propelling the growth and appeal of one of entertainment's biggest franchises.

SADA Systems Named to Inc. Magazine’s 2018 Best Workplaces List

The consulting and tech services leader earned a high score for employee engagement

LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SADA Systems, a global leader in providing business and technology consulting services, has been named one of the Best Workplaces for 2018 by Inc. magazine in its annual ranking of fast-growing private companies. SADA also earned one of the highest scores for employee engagement, at 74 percent, on Inc.’s list. The award follows a similar honor from the Business Intelligence Group, which named SADA one of the Best Places to Work in 2018 due to its “efforts to challenge employees in environments that make work fun and engaging.”

SADA’s recognition, which is highlighted in Inc. magazine’s June 2018 issue, is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement and stellar benefits. What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor and leadership.

“We’re honored to be named to Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces once again. Culture isn’t something you put in a manual or preach to employees in meetings,” says Tony Safoian, President and CEO at SADA Systems. “It’s about how you treat people – employees, vendors, customers, partners and guests alike. The core foundation of SADA is family, with emphasis on mutual respect, trust, kindness and unity. That’s the mentality I have as president of this company, and culture is a top down phenomenon.”

The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:

  • Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
  • Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
  • When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.

As expected, Best Workplace companies provide comprehensive benefits packages and SADA proudly offers competitive benefits and perks, including unlimited PTO, 401K matching, profit sharing, professional development reimbursement, and a wide range of insurance, disability and other employee assistance programs.

“By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves,” says James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief.
