IT Direct Named 2017 Best Places to Work in Connecticut

Hartford, CT – Exciting news! IT Direct has been named 2017’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut. This twelfth annual program was created by the Hartford Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Connecticut. These employers have been known for benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 40 companies split into two categories: 26 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 US employees) and 14 large-sized companies (200 or more US employees). IT Direct has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the small/medium category.

“We are thrilled and honored to have been named one of the Best Workplaces in Connecticut.  The work we do and the value we deliver to our clients all starts with the amazing people that make up the IT Direct team, so continually striving to build a place that they are proud to be a part of is critically important.  We look forward to continuing to make our company a wonderful place to work and grow in the months and years ahead.” said founder and President of IT Direct, Ari Santiago.

Companies from across the state have entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies.

IT Direct will be recognized at a special awards ceremony in February, and the actual rankings will be published in the February issue of the Hartford Business Journal.
