AppRiver Named one of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For

AppRiver, LLC, a leading provider of email messaging and Web security solutions, was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For. The annual Best Companies list appears in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.


“The top companies seek high energy employees who vigorously accept the organization’s core values,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty. “The companies that attract these great employees are the same companies that show growth even in a challenging business environment.  It’s our pleasure to recognize them and encourage others to build Florida’s competitive advantage.”


The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.


To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.


“Our Best Companies To Work For coverage always seeks to offer lessons for companies that aspire to create a Best-Company workplace,” says Mark Howard, executive editor.


“For six consecutive years we are extremely proud to have been named a Florida Trend Best Company To Work For,” says AppRiver CEO and Co-founder Michael Murdoch. “Our team brings a collection of immense talents and we put a dedicated focus on creating a rewarding job experience for them. Every day they propel the success of our rapidly expanding business.”
