NEPTUNE, N.J., June 5, 2014 -- Marathon Data Systems (www.marathondata.com), which provides a cloud-based business management platform for companies with a mobile workforce, has been included in NJBIZ's 2014 "Best Places to Work in New Jersey" list for the fourth consecutive year. The survey and award program recognizes the top 100 places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, workforce and businesses.
Driving Marathon's employee satisfaction were the core benefit underpinnings of competitive compensation packages, robust benefits and a generous 401(k) match plan. Marathon supplements these base programs with a variety of innovative benefits like free lunch daily for all employees, a casual dress code, flexible work hours, tuition reimbursement, a multitude of charitable and health-oriented company events and charitable donation match, all in a brand new state-of-the-art facility.
"It's a great honor to make this prestigious list for the fourth consecutive year," said Marathon Data Systems President and CEO, Chris Sullens. "While we've grown rapidly, more than tripling the size of the business and our team over the past five years, we believe that at the end of the day it's our people that make the company great and enable us to sustain our growth going forward."
Counter to general trends of cutting benefits in the face of rapidly rising costs, Marathon opted instead to increase the company's contribution rate for employee benefits reducing employees' out of pocket spend in 2014 compared to the prior year.
"We continually reinvest in both our products and people in an effort to ensure Marathon remains a great place to work, which we believe is the key to building a great, enduring business," said Sullens. "We're committed to keeping the extremely talented and dedicated members of our team by making Marathon Data Systems a place they enjoy coming every day."
