SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2017) - Sorenson Media, the innovator and market leader of next generation television, announced today its inclusion on Inc.'s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication's second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.

Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace, Inc.'s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.

"Inc.'s recognition is a testament to our employees' dedication and the camaraderie that makes Sorenson Media an incredible place to work," said Marcus Liassides, CEO of Sorenson Media. "Our employees breathe productivity, fun, and innovation into their daily work and we do our best to provide an environment where they can thrive. I'm humbled to lead such an amazing team."

The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees' responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies.

According to the surveys, Sorenson Media scored 90.11 out of 100 in fostering a workplace where employees willingly go above and beyond in their work, advocate for the organization, and intend to stay in the future. Among the respondents, 85 percent of women and 79 percent of men see opportunities for professional growth and career development at Sorenson Media.

Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. To qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent.

Sorenson Media currently has more than 200 employees with offices in Utah, Colorado, New York, Wales, and Korea.
