For the second year, Datto has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplace honor by Hearst Media Services.
The lists are based on employee feedback surveys administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC; focusing on several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution, and connection.
50 companies have been selected for the Top Workplace award in the state of Connecticut, landing Datto with its second-consecutive award.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds,“Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Datto’s goal is to build a comfortable culture while still inspiring and driving employees for success and growth. This is evident through the open communication and transparency that takes place in the company town hall meetings with CEO Austin McChord. Not to mention the company outings, free lunch Friday, and other great perks enjoyed by employees that helps to maintain a positive and encouraging workplace atmosphere.
Some of Datto’s employee feedback included “Fun, friendly environment, everyone works hard, and we are all in toward a goal that we feel part of a team to accomplish.” and “I get to be creative and think outside the box.”
