Newtown, PA – March 19, 2013 – EPAM Empathy Lab (NYSE:EPAM), an integrated digital strategy and execution practice of EPAM Systems Inc. (NYSE:EPAM), and one of the world’s leading digital consultancies focused on ecommerce and broadband solutions across all connected devices – is proud to be recognized for a second year in a row as one of the leading places to work in the Philadelphia region.
The designation is a result of an effort conducted by Philly.com, who enlisted WorkplaceDynamics to ask employees around the surrounding area to rate their bosses and companies. Individuals were asked to anonymously respond to questions around compensation, company culture, corporate vision and opportunities available for their personal growth.
"This has been an extremely challenging year for us: we expanded our team, revolutionized our process and took on several new large and complex client initiatives,” said Kevin Labick, Global Head of Digital Strategy and Experience Design, EPAM Empathy Lab. “To have our team rate EPAM Empathy Lab as one of the best places to work in Philadelphia after all that is incredibly gratifying."
Much of EPAM Empathy Lab’s work has required breaking new ground. This includes initiatives like re-envisioning and replatforming the American Red Cross onto Oracle, designing Style Media’s QuickTips application – the TV network’s first-ever foray onto the Windows 8 platform, and consistent efforts to improve the TV Everywhere experience for clients across the globe. The company’s culture of experimentation and thoughtful risk-taking empowers employees to solve problems that have no easy answers. This requires a collective mindset with a large amount of trust, collaboration, agility and tenacity to succeed.
