Datamax announced it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas for the sixth straight year.
In its ninth year, Arkansas Business continues to offer this program in partnership with Workforce Research Group. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.
“We are proud and humbled to once again be named ‘Best Places to Work in Arkansas,’” Datamax Inc. President Barry Simon said. “To win something once, you’re excited. To do it six times in a row? To me, that shows you’re being consistent at what you’re doing. I’m proud to have the employees we have, and certainly thrilled to consider all of them family.”
“We’re humbled to have employees feel the way they feel, but even if they don’t, we are grateful that they share that with us too, so we can improve as an organization. It’s always nice to know how you are doing,” Simon said.
From lingering supply chain issues and hiring and staffing challenges that have plagued all industries, Simon credits the Datamax culture at large for sustaining that “Raving Fan” experience for customers and internal coworkers alike.
“In a lot of ways, COVID was easier to deal with than the Supply Chain challenges. But all of our people are doing their best to work together to make the best decisions possible (for customers),” Simon said. “As a company, we continue to invest in our people to make sure we do whatever is possible to make sure our customers are Raving Fans, and so is our own Datamax family. Culture trumps everything at Datamax.”
We were not surprised at all to see that Datamax has been selected as an outstanding place to work. When you have a leader such as Barry Simon good things always happen. In all the years we have known Barry he has always demonstrated that he had an obligation to help others. He has served on more manufacturer dealer councils than I can count and always with distinction. The manufacturers Datamax has represented deeply appreciate his sincere efforts to give the best advice possible on how to improve the manufacturer dealer relationship. That is the essence of the man who thinks of others before himself. It has been the support of dealers such as Barry that has made it possible for us to celebrate our 40th Anniversary of The Cannata Report.
Well done Barry and continued success.
