SALT LAKE CITY – December 14, 2016 – Kuali has been named the Top Small Business Workplace for 2016. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, “the company’s objective to create a workplace focused on encouraging employees to seek the best in one another and themselves earned Kuali the designation as best small company to work for in Utah.”

“We measure success at Kuali in two ways: employee happiness and customer happiness,” said Joel Dehlin, Kuali CEO. “Our team enjoys working here because we dare to be different.”

Kuali’s commitment to encouraging workers to innovate and take chances earned the company the special “New Ideas” award among all companies in the survey.

“It is difficult to challenge the big, legacy technology companies in this market. We’ve attracted some truly amazing people to work toward our mission of helping institutions spend less on administration and more on teaching and research. It’s a pretty special place. And we always want to improve.”

The Salt Lake Tribune’s Top Workplaces awards are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“Our research has proven that what’s most important to employees is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
