SUN Shines in the list of Best employers survey ‘08’

SUN Microsystems fared up 19th (read top 20) in Best employers survey for the year 2008.  People voted in favor of Work-Life Balance as the top criterion for their sustained loyalty towards their respective employers.

According to research firm IDC and Dataquest, with the growing average experience in this relatively young software industry, work-life balance seems to be getting one of the top reasons in terms of employee satisfaction followed by compensation and benefits, growth opportunities, overseas exp. and location of the company to state a few.

Having personally witnessed, SUN Microsystems in India keeps its employees motivated at work by embedding work-life balance tactics into its internal policies. The company encourages telecommuting and pays out internet charges used for official purpose. Office wide WIFI, break out rooms, flexible work timings ensure employees are not tied down to their desk and can work from the corner of their comfort. New to the list are employee wellness initiatives through which company pays its employees to sweat out at a GYM of their choice. The open culture at this open source software company justifies the ranking its awarded. Congratulations SUN !
