ISOutsource Named One of Washington's Best Workplaces by Puget Sound Business Journal
2012 Finalists to be honored and winners announced at special event on August 9  

SEATTLE, WA - June 20 - ISOutsource was named as one of the finalists for Washington's Best Workplaces by the Puget Sound Business Journal.  The program was launched in 2007 to identify and recognize best practices in the hiring and retention of great people.  This year, after an extensive and rigorous process, which included more than 300 nominees and the completion of surveys by nominee-company employees across the state, workplaces in four different categories have been identified as Washington's best, based on their various employee benefit offerings, leadership culture and work/life balance philosophies. In total, 85 companies have made the grade as finalists.  

The computer industry often ignores the people it supports and places the focus on technology.  By contrast, ISOustource has developed a culture that is customer-focused.  The company has found that the market is very responsive to this unique approach and the result has been an enviable 26% year-over-year growth.   

"At ISOutsource we find that when we provide a happy, productive and supported experience for our clients, that carries over to our employees as well." says Day Hay, owner and CEO.  "We do things differently at ISOutsource, and we know that when employees feel valued they deliver on our promise and clients will experience happy computing."  

"Work force development has never been more important - or more difficult - than it is in today's global economy," said Gordon Prouty, publisher of the Business Journal. "We believe the Business Journal has an important role to play in drawing attention to innovations and excellence in the management of our region's No. 1 resource: its people."  

The finalists will be celebrated at a one-of-a-kind awards event at Safeco Field on Aug. 9. Honorees and the public alike are invited to come cheer for the workplace accomplishments of these companies from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The celebration will include ballpark food and drink, walking the bases, speed pitching, and an awards presentation. The company with the greatest number of employees present will win a suite at a future Seattle Mariners game.
