PROVO, Utah—May 26, 2016—The Business Intelligence Group today announced that Vivint Smart Home is the overall winner of its inaugural business workplace Best Places to Work award contest. The organization sought to identify companies that actively work to improve performance by challenging employees in environments that make work fun and engaging.

“This award validates our efforts to build an innovative work environment centered on hard work and integrity, winning together and giving back,” said Starr Fowler, senior vice president of Human Resources at Vivint Smart Home. “We’re proud to have created a culture where employees can thrive and contribute in meaningful ways to Vivint’s continued growth and success.”

Researchers, including Gallup, have determined that employee satisfaction and engagement are key indicators for employee productivity and customer satisfaction, which ultimately result in improved profitability and growth.

“Congratulations to the entire team for making employee satisfaction and performance a priority at Vivint Smart Home,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “Employees have voted and provided clear evidence that this is a special company, one where executive leadership and management focuses on making work more than…just work!”

Nominations for the Best Places to Work award were submitted to the Business Intelligence Group in April. Current and former Vivint Smart Home employees were then asked to rate the company online for overall satisfaction and performance.

Vivint previously won a 2016 BIG Innovation Award from the Business Intelligence Group for its Vivint Doorbell Camera. For more information about Vivint Smart Home, visit:
