Once again we're honored to be named one of Crain's New York Business' Best Places to Work in NYC. We're #19 in this year's ranking, joining some of the most impressive, dynamic companies in the country in one of the most competitive talent markets in the world. We're truly grateful to Crain's, to the Best Places Group, and especially to our employees whose anonymous feedback earned us this award. Thank you all.
This is the third time in 2013 we've had the occasion to acknowledge how important our people and our culture are to the Return Path story. Earlier this year Colorado Business Magazine ranked us the state's #3 mid-sized employer and Fortune ranked us the #4 medium-sized workplace in the nation.
One of the most gratifying aspects of these awards is that they all focus on our commitment to culture as the difference-maker. Our operational transparency, career development initiatives, community connections, and real dedication to providing work-life-balance all set us apart. And while it's fantastic to be celebrated for creating such a unique, positive environment, the underlying reason we strive to build an award-winning workplace is bottom-line-driven: Our culture is a competitive advantage.
Our culture helps us to recruit exceptionally talented people across the country, but more important, by creating a great work experience we enable our people to deliver a great client experience. As a direct result we've built incredibly strong relationships, steadily grown our business, and kept our executives and our investors happy. In turn that continues to make Return Path an attractive place for highly skilled people; it's a virtuous circle that's been paying dividends for 14 years.
So thank you again to the entire Return Path family for this honor. And if you're reading this as a candidate looking for an environment where you can succeed as part of an award-winning team and culture, please take a closer look — we're growing and constantly searching for people who can make us even better.
