Orchestra Software Team – 2017

True culture is the manifestation of our collective values embodied by a unique team of empowered individuals.

Orchestra Software has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian. Top Workplaces lists 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, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them 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.”

Orchestra Software CEO, Brad Windecker says the Top Workplace honor is a direct result of an organic value-driven culture: “Building a Top Workplace often centers on building a great culture. This isn’t something you can dictate or create artificially. True culture is the manifestation of our collective values embodied by a unique team of empowered individuals.”

One of Orchestra’s values – authenticity, encourages employees to be honest with each other and find courage in transparency. “Transparency starts with the leadership.” adds Windecker. “We set the example for authenticity through transparent communication of our current strategy and future vision. We also incorporate weekly OpEx score surveys for employees to provide anonymous input.”

As a result, Orchestra’s employees are now more aligned than ever with the company’s direction thanks to open communication and constant company-wide improvements.

“Employee empowerment is heavily emphasized at Orchestra. Whether it’s decision making, being transparent or providing tough feedback, we simply point to our core values and empower people to do the right thing.”
