OptConnect Recognized By Utah Business Magazine As One Of Utah’s Best Companies To Work For

Dec. 6, 2018

OptConnect, a leader in the managed wireless connectivity industry, today announced that they have been recognized by Utah Business Magazine as one of Utah’s Best Companies to Work For. OptConnect was one of the exclusive ten companies to be honored in the small company category. 

Utah Business Magazine's "Best Companies to Work For" honors are based on a combination of anonymous employee surveys and expert analysis of workplace culture, including management, structure, benefits, compensation, engagement, and more. Out of the thousands of companies in Utah, only fifty-six were selected for this prestigious award. 

“I am so proud of the team and the efforts involved to make OptConnect the success it is today,” said Chris Baird, CEO of OptConnect. “Being named as one of the best companies to work for consists of more than simply having the nicest facility, the best break room, the most healthcare coverage plans, or the most attractive benefits. Those are important, for sure. But, for me, none of that is more important than the employees that come in every day and make it a great place to work. They make all the difference.” 

According to the Utah Business website, nominees “went through a rigorous examination of workplace elements such as benefits and pay, fairness and opportunities, corporate culture, internal communication, and employee pride.” 

OptConnect’s recognition from Utah Business Magazine comes after the company was recently named to the Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. 

“Our continuous growth and success are because of the wonderful employees we have,” said Baird. “I am keenly aware of the individual contributions and impact each one has on the bigger picture here at OptConnect, and for me, being the best starts with hiring the only the best and raising the bar with each new team member.” 

Winners will be honored at a luncheon at the Grand America on Thursday, December 6th.
