Nashville, TN January 27, 2015 — Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems proudly reports that they have been nominated for the Nashville Business Journal’s (NBJ) 2015 Best Places to Work Award. The award recognizes companies who excel at team effectiveness and have a high level of employee trust in senior management. These, and 8 other factors, are measured, ranked, and compiled as part of the award determination process.
Equinox was founded in 1986 on a simple, yet clearly-defined vision: to be a great place to work. Owners and founders, Wayne Lowe and Byron Middendorf, have succeeded in fulfilling this mission by focusing on what really matters—family comes first. Knowing that their families are well cared for allows Equinox employees to wholeheartedly focus on the business of providing the best telecom solutions in the industry when they are on the clock.
And this philosophy is directly responsible for the company’s success in the telecom space. Equinox’s employees are passionate about helping carriers protect and optimize revenue, believing that each customer should not only benefit from their products but should also enjoy the experience. Instead of wielding large advertising budgets or flashy marketing campaigns, the company relies on the best form of marketing—personal referrals from existing customers. Every member of the Equinox team takes this commitment seriously. As a result, the majority of new customers come through industry referrals or from first-hand experience using the product at a previous employer.
“The main ingredient in our recipe for success in the telecom market is to first and foremost take care of Equinox employees,” explained company founder and CEO, Byron Middendorf. “We have over 28 years’ evidence that employee happiness directly correlates to customer happiness.”
Finalists and award recipients for this year’s Best Places to Work honor are announced and publically recognized at an awards ceremony on April 16, 2015. Finalists and award recipients are also featured in the NBJ publication. To learn more about the Nashville Business Journal or the awards they sponsor, visit http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/.
