Upper Hand Selected as a Winning Company for Powderkeg’s 2020 National Tech Culture Awards
Digital community for tech companies, investors and professionals presents second annual Tech Culture Awards to recognize company cultures across the nation
INDIANAPOLIS (January 7, 2020) – Upper Hand, the leading technology platform for the sports and fitness industry, today announces that it has been awarded Top Tech Company Culture in Powderkeg’s 2020 National Tech Culture Awards. This recognizes Upper Hand as one of the best company cultures in tech in communities beyond Silicon Valley.
Upper Hand was announced as a winner after their participation in Powderkeg’s 2020 Tech Culture Awards, a survey that gathered information from technology-powered software, hardware, product, and services companies across the country about the culture within their workplace.
Employees rated their companies and employers on several topics that contribute to company culture, including leadership, diversity and inclusion, career path, work-life balance, and remote work. Awards are based on application responses and survey rankings by each company’s employees.
“The Upper Hand team is made up of people from across all different backgrounds who find commonalities in their passion for sports, fitness, and technology” says Upper Hand Founder and CEO Kevin MacCauley. “Our core values are defined as competitive, gritty, passionate, aspirational, selfless, coachable, trusting, thoughtful, and fun, and each member of our team exemplifies those standards.”
“We hire based on these core values, and we coach and provide feedback on them as well. We truly believe that these values contribute to our best-in-class company culture, making Upper Hand teammates not only amazing employees ‘on the field’, but also awesome humans ‘off the field’.”
“We are honored to be recognized by Powderkeg as a Top Tech Company Culture” says MacCauley.
This has been an award-winning year for Upper Hand, who won both Gold and Bronze Stevie awards in the Training and User Experience categories, respectively, at the American Business Awards, as well as received recognition as a top provider for club management, yoga studio, and membership management software by Capterra, GetApp and Software Advice. Upper Hand has previously been recognized for its company culture as a 2018 TechPoint Mira Awards nominee for Company Culture of the Year.
The Tech Culture Awards were held at Powderkeg’s first-ever two-day Unvalley Virtual Conference, where companies connected with some of the biggest opportunities in tech beyond Silicon Valley.
