Leader in business management software for independent craft makers receives workplace honor from Business Intelligence Group on heels of Series A funding

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — February 24, 2020 — The Business Intelligence Group (BIG) today announced that it has awarded Ekos, the leader in business management software for craft makers, a Best Places to Work designation. BIG sought to identify companies that are actively working to improve their own performance through efforts to challenge employees in environments that make work fun and engaging.

“Coming off a banner year in 2019 highlighted by our Series A funding round and numerous new hires across the organization, we couldn’t be more pleased to get the news about this ‘Best Places to Work’ honor,” said Josh McKinney, Ekos CEO. “One of our core values is taking care of our employees and making Ekos a great place to work. When we take care of them, they in turn take care of our customers. And when our customers are taken care of, they have a better chance of being successful, which then makes us successful. It’s all connected. Being named to this list validates that we’re on the right path.”

“Congratulations to Ekos for building an organization focused on employee engagement and performance,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear from analyzing the employee survey data that this is a great place to work and employee feedback is not only listened to but acted upon. Congratulations to the entire team.”
