Award-winning Microsoft Gold Certified IT consulting firm earns recognition as a Top Workplace in Atlanta for fourth consecutive year

ATLANTA, GA - March 24, 2017 - Innovative Architects ( has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal Constitution. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day-the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”

Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“The Top Workplace designation is a significant achievement for our company because it reflects the voice of our employees,” says Laurie Walmsley, VP of Client Experience. Walmsley adds, “The survey provides a unique perspective as it relates to employee satisfaction with our leadership, our culture, benefits and work/life balance. We are excited and proud to receive this prestigious designation for the fourth year in a row! This year we achieved our highest rank ever, number 6 in small businesses.”
