Torch Selected as Top-40 Finalist in Top Small Company Workplaces Competition
Torch Technologies has been selected as a finalist for this year’s Inc. Magazine and Winning Workplaces Top Small Company Workplaces competition, which recognizes the best small- and mid-sized places to work in the country. The honor was officially announced in Inc.’s June 2010 issue.
Of 500 qualifying companies nationally, Torch was among the top 40 companies recognized. Its position as a finalist places Torch in the top eighth percentile of the 500 qualifying companies assessed. Torch is also one of only two Alabama-based companies recognized this year.
“We are very pleased to be recognized by Winning Workplaces and Inc. as a premier workplace,” Torch CEO and co-founder Bill Roark said.
In addition to listing all 2010 winners and finalists, this month’s Inc. highlighted a number of best practices by small and medium companies, including a section on Social Responsibility that featured Torch Helps, a 501(c)3 charitable organization funded and managed by Torch employees.
“I’m particularly proud that Inc. has recognized the giving spirit of our employees and the excellent charitable work that Torch Helps does to serve others in our community,” Roark added.
