CHRISTCHURCH, NZ. December 24, 2010 —Christchurch-based software company, Telogis, has won an award for its Aliso Viejo office as one of the best places to work. The award reflects the thriving environment Telogis' employees enjoy the world over, including the Christchurch research and development team.

Telogis develops fleet management software from its Middleton office in Christchurch, providing telematics systems for fleets around the world, particularly North America where they supply some of the biggest fleets in the world.

The award recognised several factors that made Telogis a great place to work including pay and staff benefits but also the easy access to senior management that gave employees a sense of empowerment, knowing that the leadership team valued everyone's input.

Comments from an anonymous staff survey highlighted the accessibility of management and their eagerness to make sure they didn't lose touch with those at the coal face of the company's operations.

The sentiments are shared in the Christchurch office where the company has an enviable reputation as one of the best development companies to work for, with many top graduates recruited from local universities and staying on after their internship has ended.

The rapid growth of the company has resulted in several new job opportunities in their Christchurch office, providing a welcome change to news of a depressed job market in NZ.
