Sage Selected as One of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas for the Fourth Consecutive Year
IRVINE, Calif. (December 4, 2012) – Sage North America today announced it was named one of the 2013 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. This is the fourth consecutive year Sage has been recognized with this honor.
The Best Companies to Work for in Texas is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group. This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2013 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies.
The Sage North America Nonprofit Solutions business is headquartered in Austin, Texas. More than 100 employees work on the Austin campus. Employees cited work-life balance, great coworkers, a sense of camaraderie, helping nonprofit customers achieve their missions, and opportunities to give back to the community as some of the top reasons they enjoy working at Sage.
“There is a wonderful work-life balance here. The flexibility to work from home when needed or to work flexible hours has been invaluable to me as a single mom,” said Barbara L. Green, principal information designer at Sage Nonprofit Solutions. “I am also really impressed by the employee retention here. It’s rare to see such a large group with 10-plus years’ tenure. That fact alone helped make up my mind when I was deciding to work here, and it’s a big reason I recommend Sage to former colleagues who are looking for a new position.”
“Sage is a team-oriented environment. We all have a common goal to achieve, and it is special to work with a great group of people who are so willing to help you with whatever you need to succeed and to satisfy the customer,” said Tony Slan, customer care representative. “We have a great company culture. Sage cares not only about its employees and customers but also the community. Sage strives to give back and help improve the lives of others through charitable programs.”

- Have at least 15 employees working in Texas
