Glassdoor Recognizes Watertown-based Graduate Admissions Leader as #1 New England-based Company in its Category

WATERTOWN, Mass. (December 8, 2016) — Glassdoor, one of the fastest growing job and recruiting sites, has recognized Liaison as one of its Employees’ Choice Best Places to Work in 2017. Liaison, which has spent over two decades innovating and managing centralized application services (CAS) for more than 7,000 higher education programs on more than 800 campuses, represents Boston’s evolving tech industry as the top New England-based company in the “50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work For” category.

Glassdoor hosts an impressive and ever-growing database of company reviews and CEO approval ratings contributed by employees. Its Employees’ Choice awards are based solely on the input of employees collected through voluntary feedback shared on the site over the past year. The company leverages a proprietary algorithm that takes account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews to determine which companies across the U.S. will be recognized with this award.

“Liaison has always been driven by service. This award is especially touching to me because it’s our employees recognizing our commitment to serving both external and internal stakeholders,” said George Haddad, founder and CEO of Liaison. “What sets us apart in the tech industry is that we know corporate culture cannot be sacrificed for company growth.” The company’s Employees’ Choice recognition isn’t all that Mr. Haddad has to celebrate this year: His CEO approval rating on Glassdoor has steadily increased over the last two years, reaching 100% in early 2016.

“The list of tech companies that have chosen Boston and Cambridge for their talent base and its surrounding areas for their headquarters is impressive and keeps increasing,” added Christopher D’Arcy, vice president of human resources at Liaison. “We’re proud to contribute to Boston’s innovative tech environment while providing an award-winning employee experience.”
