The Tampa Bay Times Names TOPS Software A Winner of the Tampa Bay Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award

Posted by Andrea Drennen, CMCA on April 13, 2016


TOPS Software, a leading provider of Community Association Management software, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Tampa Bay Times. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

TOPS Software President Michael Hardy was excited to accept the award: "I am humbled and honored to see TOPS named a Top Workplace in Tampa Bay. This award stands as a testament to the many smart, talented and caring professionals that make up our team."

While TOPS is a small company with fewer than 100 employees, it leaves a large footprint. Millions of homes across the United States are managed by organizations using TOPS products to stay on top of accounting, management and automation of their day-to-day operations. With such a large potential impact, each and every team member at TOPS is vital to the success of the company.

The company's cultural code plays a big role in contributing to the company's success. According to the culture code, "To be on top, you've got to be 'T.O.P.S.'. The acronym stands for Team-Oriented, Open, Positive and Sympathetic. Being 'T.O.P.S.' is what we believe and value – it’s who we strive to be and what we look for in each other."

These values combine to form an amazing team of people who care about each other, the company, and their customers.
