SAN FRANCISCO (April 23, 2013) – At the 10th annual Great Place to Work Conference, 900 conference attendees voted Cirrus Logic the Grand Prize Winner of the Great Place to Work “We ♥ Our Workplace” video contest. Cirrus Logic received the Grand Prize, a $5000 award to be donated to Cirrus Logic’s charity of choice: The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM).
“We are thrilled that Cirrus Logic’s video won the competition,” said Leslie Caccamese, Director of Strategic Marketing and Research at Great Place to Work. “Their video demonstrated both their core company values while also clearly and organically illustrating that theirs is a great workplace according to the Great Place to Work® Model where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.”
Ninety-five companies participated in the second annual video contest, sponsored by NetApp. The contest invites companies to showcase what makes their companies great workplaces. Participants submitted nearly 500 minutes of employee testimonials, music videos, and parodies that demonstrated employees’ pride in their workplace, along with their creativity and camaraderie. The audience at the Great Place to Work Conference resonated with Cirrus Logic’s simple sentiments like, “Other companies give you beer, Cirrus Logic gives you people you want to have beer with.”
"The Cirrus Logic corporate culture video "You Can't Beat Working at Cirrus Logic" showcases how the company supports its employees in matters both ordinary and extraordinary," said Jo-Dee Benson, vice president, Chief Culture Officer, Cirrus Logic. "We've developed an outstanding corporate culture, and you can see in the video that our employees really embrace the core values of our company. We're delighted that a $5,000 contribution is being made by the Great Place to Work Institute in recognition of the video to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, which provides affordable health care services for Austin's low-income, uninsured working musicians."
