Princeton, NJ (October 17, 2016) – At Talon, we don’t just stand behind our work. We stand behind the people who make it possible.
A positive work environment is essential to a healthy business and has been a central component of our success. So we’re proud to announce that Talon has been ranked #11 among the country’s Best Small and Medium Workplaces as recently announced by Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
“Our C4 principles aren’t just a decal on our walls. We live and breathe these principles every day. For employees, these principles translate into reveling in each other’s successes, challenging one another to consistently raise the bar, providing honest communication, and going above and beyond for one another. We’ve created a great workplace where employees are challenged, appreciated and rewarded. We’re very proud of this,” said Dan Reynolds, CEO.
Talon won this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
“We’re serious about what we do, but we also have fun and take the time to enjoy each other’s company, whether it’s over Bagel Mondays, company happy hours, or during our quarterly team building event,” said Joe Kelly, COO.
“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM organizations.
Talon was the only company in New Jersey to make the list of Best Small workplaces (under 100 employees). Talon has also been ranked by NJBIZ as one of the Best Places to Work in NJ in 2016 and 2015.

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees’ personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
