Apex Systems and Apex Life Sciences, leading staffing and services
companies, are proud to announce they were named winners of the Greater
Richmond Area 2017 Top Workplaces Award by the Richmond Times-Dispatch,
based on an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics.
“The Richmond region has been our headquarters for over 20 years due to
its strong workforce and great business community,” said Rand Blazer,
President of Apex Systems. “Our team members are the keys to our success
and we are proud that they recognized our company as a Top Workplace.
They constantly demonstrate their commitment to making a difference in
the community by furthering our mission of developing solutions and
matching top quality resources to meet our clients’ technical and life

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.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of
connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top
The 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.
