xMatters Named 2012 Best Place to Work in the Bay Area

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2012) - xMatters, inc., the relevance engine company, has been named as one of the Best Places to Work in the bay area for 2012. Growing at over 25% year after year since 2005, xMatters has what it takes to be a leader in the next generation of communication and collaboration applications and an innovator in corporate culture, providing an environment where employees work together for the company's success and their personal and professional growth.

xMatters was founded with a "same team" mentality, encouraging personal growth, collaboration and development. The "same team" concept reminds each person at xMatters that as xMatters grows and changes the only department that matters is the one, same team of xMatters as a whole.

"At xMatters, we strive to provide a place of work where employees can be successful while making life long relationships along the way," said Charity Hudnall, marketing director, xMatters. "Our culture is like no other -- a family where every voice is heard, every idea is a good one and everyone is allowed to be creative in the role, in their department and across teams."

Two years ago the company started the biggest loser contest where the participants took it upon themselves to get healthy. This developed into the "3P." The 3P, or personal progression program, now grants each person $250 a year to follow a passion. The results included first time marathoners, bag pipers, tap dancers, iron man participants and numerous others. The requirement for the program is that you must publish your goal and your progress. At the end of the year a $5,000 grant is rewarded to continue your passion.

The Best Place to Work in the bay project involved surveying employees at 250 Bay Area companies to find those companies whose employees gave them the highest ratings and was produced by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal.

The months-long project culminated with the print publication of top-25 and top-50 lists of the best places to work in five company-size categories from throughout the Bay Area.
