Charlotte, NC (November 20, 2023) -

LEAD Technologies Inc. (LEADTOOLS), the leading provider of AI-powered SDKs for application development across all major platforms and programming languages, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The Charlotte Observer Top Workplaces. Based on overwhelmingly positive employee feedback, this award is a reflection of a strong company culture built on alignment, execution, and connection.

The Top Workplaces 2023 award list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization.

“LEAD Technologies Inc. is honored to be recognized by our employees through receiving this prestigious award,” said LEAD Technologies Inc. co-founder and president Rich Little. “We have held a strong presence in the Charlotte tech community for the past 30 years, largely because we have relied on our fellow colleagues for collaboration, inspiration, and reflection. We are proud of the culture we've built and that we’ve kept central to our mission since day one.”

The positive culture at LEAD Technologies contributes to the longevity of employee’s tenures, with nearly half of the company working at LEAD a decade or longer. Cultivating a culture based on respect, support, and encouragement reflects how the values resonate well with employees and how many of them continued to stay and grow their careers at the company. Not only does this award highlight LEAD commitment to its employees, but also to its local community as a whole. Every year the company partners with local charity organizations including Families Forward Charlotte to support low-income families in becoming self-sufficient by contributing food, supplies, education, and other resources. The company also hosts student tours, where local high school students are welcomed to see the facility and hear about LEAD’s professional development programs. By creating a company culture that prioritizes giving back to the local community, LEAD ensures it is creating lasting change not only within the workplace but also Charlotte at large.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
