Criterion HCM Wins Hearst Media Services Top Workplaces Award for Third Consecutive Year

Norwalk, CT, Sept. 28 2022 — Criterion HCM, a global provider of Simply Powerful human capital management software, has been awarded a 2022 Top Workplace honor by Hearst Connecticut Top Workplaces — the third year in a row Criterion has received the recognition.

Criterion CEO Sunil Reddy says the company’s success is due to alignment on core values and collaboration, which create a thriving company culture.

“Our culture of shared interest and ownership carries everyone forward successfully,” Reddy said. “Engaged and satisfied employees result in extremely satisfied customers. We are honored to receive the Hearst Top Workplaces Award for the third consecutive year.”

Criterion was also awarded the Hearst Award for “New Ideas” in this year’s competition. CEO Sunil Reddy attributes his company’s success to alignment with core company values such as service excellence, as well as collaboration as key to creating a winning culture.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers critical to any organization’s success, including alignment, execution, and connection. 

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Energage CEO Eric Rubino. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
