Synergistix, Inc. is pleased to announce that for the seventh consecutive year, it was among the top ten 2022 award recipients of a Top Workplaces honor from The Sun Sentinel. Winners were chosen based on employee feedback.

The anonymous survey, gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner, Energage, LLC., uniquely measures 15 culture drivers critical to the success of any organization. These include alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

Synergistix fills those requirements and more. The company is known for its family culture, its caring top-down management, its amazingly intelligent, engaged workforce, and cohesive teams. These principles go hand-in-hand with the company’s core values of Quality, Innovation, Partnership, and Respect. They also carry through to the customer experience Synergistix provides to its life science clients by enabling them to build strong customer relationships and highly effective sales teams.

“We’re so pleased to be honored by this award from The Sun Sentinel,” said Don Schenker, Synergistix President and CEO. “Since our founding in 1997, we have always been focused on creating a strong corporate culture. Having The Sun Sentinel formalize the impact of our efforts with this recognition year after year is truly meaningful.”

Synergistix has been committed to fostering a corporate culture in which team members and managers understand one another’s professional and personal goals and work together to achieve them. “This maintains a company focus on people, and helps to retain staff and attract top talent,” Schenker said.

There are many employee and family-oriented programs such as its annual employee fun day, holiday party, summer family picnic and monthly events like softball games, happy hours, pot-luck luncheons, and bagel Friday’s, and Bring Your Children to Work Day, said Juanita Infante, Manager, Human Resources.

“What’s more, Synergistix invites employees who live and work remotely throughout the country to its corporate office three times a year. Meeting in person helps them get to know each other, build relationships, and feel a part. It’s our leaders and our people who are the heart of our company,” Infante said.

“I share these examples and the stories of the acts of kindness of Don and our senior leaders and am inevitably greeted with a ‘That’s amazing,’ or ‘Oh my gosh,’” Infante said.

She added that again and again, we see that candidates who appreciate the deep-rooted family and people-first values the company stands for align well with our culture. As with our long-term employees, these recruits immediately show how much they enjoy coming to work every day and being part of the Synergistix team.

Schenker said that these awards come naturally to Synergistix. “I believe our team members would cite one simple reason: ‘We get it’,” said Schenker. “We recognize that our staff has a life outside of Synergistix and to be successful at work and at home, it’s important to cultivate an optimal balance.” 

Eric Rubino, Energage CEO, agreed. “The employee experience needs to be on the mission critical list. Culture drives performance.”
