McAfee Employees Vote their Office to be Recognized as One of the Best Work Environments in Dallas for a Second Year
SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 5, 2012 - The Dallas Morning News has named McAfee among the Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas, Ft. Worth. McAfee, the world’s largest dedicated security company, made the Top 100 list in the Large Company category for the second year in a row by showcasing their dedicated work ethic and commitment to giving back to the community.
McAfee was chosen as a Top Place to Work based on an independently conducted anonymous survey of its employees by The Dallas Morning News’ research partner, Workplace Dynamics. More than 35% of McAfee employees responded to the Workplace Dynamics survey to show overwhelming support of the security company. Not only did McAfee make the Top 100 list but it also topped the Top 20 Best Large Companies to work for.
“To be chosen for a second year demonstrates McAfee’s continued commitment in offering a workplace where all of its employees can grow their careers and pursue their passion of keeping people safe online,” said J.C. Herrera, SVP of Global Human Resources. “McAfee strives on making the workplace a flexible and positive environment, which in turn enables us to attract top talent within the industry. Not only are we passionate about giving back to our employees, but the communities in which we live and work as well. We are proud of our diverse and dynamic workforce.”
The company values and understands that its employees’ hard work and commitment contributes to its daily success. McAfee prides itself on its supportive work environment, community involvement, work-life balance, wellness reimbursement, achievement acknowledgement, free refreshment centers, telecommuting benefits, bonus programs and Friday breakfasts for employees. In addition to its emphasis on recognition and showing appreciation for hard work, the McAfee culture values having fun and giving back.
McAfee is able to stand out through its commitment to making the world a safer place. This year, more than 50% of McAfee employees participated in the Global Community Service Day. Employees showcased their work ethic outside the office by volunteering in more than one hundred nonprofits around the world. By feeding the hungry and the homeless, working with children, rebuilding homes for low-income families, painting buildings, planting trees, cleaning up beaches and caring for animals in shelters, McAfee employees showed that their commitment to safety lies far beyond the four walls of their office buildings.
This year’s DMN Top 100 Places to Work list was compiled from a 24-question survey sent to employees asking them their opinions on six areas of the workplace including direction, execution, career, conditions, managers, and pay and benefits. The research firm has studied responses from 3,500 organizations and 1,450,000+ employees. This is the fourth annual Top 100 Places to Work survey. Winners were announced during the annual luncheon held on Monday, November 12, at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
McAfee has also received accolades globally for its company culture. The Australian office has been named a finalist in the Australian HR Awards in the Employer of Choice category and one of BRW Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work in 2012. They achieved a ranking of 11th best place to work out of all companies, across all industries that participated in this survey. This award is a clear recognition of the ongoing approach that the McAfee Australia team has taken to our employee engagement through the internal MyVoice surveys and external Great Place to Work Surveys.
