SEATTLE – June 29, 2018 – Yapta, the leading provider of airfare and hotel price tracking services, announced it has been named one of Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in an annual ranking compiled by Seattle Business magazine. Yapta employees praised the organization for its positive culture and for fostering work-life balance.
For the 29th year, Seattle Business magazine looked for the top companies in Washington that set the standard for work environment, rewards and recognition, benefits, communications, responsibility and decision-making, and executive leadership for its annual 100 Best Companies to Work For program. In January, the publication issued anonymous workplace surveys to over 77,000 Washington state employees of companies large and small all across the state, including Yapta. Yapta was ranked #20 in the Small Companies category, which includes organizations with 15 to 49 employees.
“We’re so incredibly fortunate to have a team of talented people that are passionate about what they do and the customers we serve,” said James Filsinger, President and CEO of Yapta. “While it’s an honor to be recognized by Seattle Business magazine, it’s an even greater honor to work alongside each one of my colleagues at Yapta every day.”
