BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2013) - Liazon Corporation was recently recognized as one of the best places to work in Western New York by Buffalo Business First Magazine. Liazon currently has 80 full time employees across three offices and is expanding its team to keep up with its fast paced growth. Employment opportunities can be found on Liazon's careers page.
The annual competition is held by Buffalo Business First Magazine and is administered by Quantum Market Research. Each year hundreds of companies in Western NY compete for a spot on the coveted list that recognizes the best local companies to work for based on the views of employees themselves. Earlier last year the company was also chosen as one of the best places to work in insurance by Business Insurance Magazine.
Liazon's company culture emphasizes employee empowerment, trust and community over bureaucratic corporate rules. For instance, employees are allowed to use as much vacation time as they see fit and Liazon encourages all employees to take time off to give back to their community. Employees also select their own portfolio of benefits from Liazon's award-winning Bright Choices® Exchange, the country's market-leading private benefits exchange.
Liazon employees come together at company-wide events such as monthly potlucks, organized community service events, and regular celebrations including board game afternoons, which foster company identity and build relationships between employees who might not interact otherwise at the office. The company offers free snacks and occasional ice cream breaks along with a mandatory email-free hour each day.
"Certainly one of the keys to Liazon's success is our company culture, which is based on trust and accountability," said Ashok Subramanian, CEO and co-founder of Liazon. "But it goes beyond just that. We are building something special here. Not just a company but an entirely new way of shopping for benefits in this country. It's a tremendous challenge, but it makes it so much more fun, so much more worthwhile, when you get to do it with people with whom you enjoy spending time."
Founded in 2007, Liazon Corporation operates the market-leading private benefits exchange for businesses. Its flagship product, the Bright Choices® Exchange, is an online benefits store that is changing the way employers and employees buy benefits.
