Living in Atlanta is great. Living in Atlanta and working for Infor is even better.
Based on surveys of 60,000 metro-area workers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has named Infor one of the top 25 large workplaces in Atlanta in 2017. The newspaper also designated Infor 1 of the top 150 workplaces overall.
More than 2,500 companies were nominated or asked to participate in the 2017 Top Workplaces in Atlanta assessment, and employees at 275 were surveyed by Workplace Dynamics, a human resources consulting company.
"The one common theme across the winning companies was that they earned the loyalty and affection of their employees by investing in their well-being," noted the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article announcing the winners.
That is certainly true for Infor employees.
"The people are what make Infor great. The relationships are very personable, and I feel there is truly an 'open-door policy,' " says Odessa Jackson, a collections specialist who has worked at Infor for almost 10 years.
"One of my favorite things is the support I get from my team. I know that they have my back," says Sue Duncan, a senior executive administrator in sales. "There is always someone there to say 'I gotcha' when you're in the weeds."
Gail Faur, an executive administrator who has been with the company for almost a decade, says she loves Infor Atlanta's "commitment to involve employees in their role to promote the growth of the company."
"One of my favorite parts of Infor Atlanta is the large presence of the Women's Infor Network here. We do an excellent job of promoting women in the company," Faur says.
"I also love the culture of giving back that our CEO Charles Phillips has instilled," she says. "Infor does an amazing job at making a real difference in the community."
Whether it is sponsoring employee volunteer build days with Habitat for Humanity, or participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk, or supporting US service members through the Adopt-a-Platoon program, Inforians love to give back.
Infor is the one of the world's largest business software company. The Atlanta-area office in Alpharetta employs 385 full-time workers, many in software development, deployment services and support, finance and billing, and IT global support.
All three Infor employees say they highly recommend working at Infor to friends whenever they get the chance.
