We’re excited to announce that Novell was selected by Glassdoor.com, the leading social jobs and career community, as one of the Top 25 Companies in the U.S. for Work-Life Balance.
Glassdoor’s list of top companies for work-life balance relies solely on the input of employees who elected to participate in an online company review survey. This year’s survey was conducted between July 2011 and July 2012, with nearly 100,000 companies participating.
Novell was ranked 13th on Glassdoor’s annual list included with other high-profile companies such as SAS, REI, CareerBuilder, LinkedIn, Orbitz and Citrix.
“In today’s highly connected world, striving for work-life balance can feel virtually impossible given greater access to our jobs around the clock,” said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert, who ran global HR departments at Electronic Arts and PepsiCo before co-authoring Talent Force: A New Manifesto for the Human Side of Business. “Companies that make sincere efforts to recognize employees’ lives outside of the office will often see the payoff when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent.”
This is really exciting news and a great topic for conversations not only internally, but with the outside world via the social media channels in which you participate. Although we recognize that there is always opportunity to improve in all facets of our operation including the are of work-life balance and the creation of a positive work environment, overall, these results are an indicator of the progress we’ve made and the good things that lie ahead.
