ADNET Technologies, a managed IT services, cloud and cybersecurity provider, was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut in 2021 for the eighth consecutive year. This 15th annual program was created by the Hartford Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

ADNET Technologies has built a people-first culture among its workforce and in its approach to serving clients. In everything it does, the firm takes into account the needs of the people it serves as an employer and as an IT services provider, developing engaging, memorable experiences and trusted relationships. This human-centered approach remains a differentiating and distinguishing factor among firms in its industry.

“The pandemic tested businesses – especially those of us in the IT services industry – in ways most of us could have never imagined. We had to step up and deliver – for our team members, our clients and our communities,” said Christopher Luise, Co-CEO of ADNET Technologies.

“I am so proud of our how our team responded to the challenges our company and our clients faced,” Luise added. “They acted with constant care and concern for each other and the people we serve. They worked quickly to implement solutions and consistently went above and beyond to help our clients handle complex technology issues amid disruption to their business plans. They were incredible – and this recognition is a credit to the culture they have helped us build and maintain even through the pandemic.”

After adapting at the start of the pandemic, ADNET intends to maintain its work-from-anywhere operations for the long-term. Its workspaces will become places for collaboration, innovation and spontaneous interaction, while its team will remain empowered to work from wherever they are most productive. Leveraging its expertise in optimizing secure cloud technologies, ADNET has created an environment that preserves company culture, ensures security and enables client success regardless of the physical locations in which its team is working.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Connecticut – those businesses benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and communities. The list is made up of 31 companies split into two categories: 18 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 U.S. employees) and 13 large-sized companies (200 or more U.S. employees).

ADNET Technologies was ranked fourth in the small/medium employers category for the Best Places to Work in Connecticut in 2021 program.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in Connecticut;
  • Have at least 15 employees in Connecticut;
  • Be in business a minimum of 1 year.

The ranked companies are recognized at a special awards ceremony and have the opportunity to participate in a themed game that will be presented as a mini-series in HBJ’s daily e-news. Rankings were published in the February 22 issue of the Hartford Business Journal.
