Among chief executives recognized by employees in the U.S. Zettel received an impressive approval rating based on anonymous and voluntary reviews AVI-SPL employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.

“There are many responsibilities that come with being CEO but, I believe the most important is having a positive impact in the personal and professional lives of employees,” said Zettel. “I am truly honored to be leading an incredible group of people at AVI-SPL and cannot thank them enough for their passion, efforts, and support.”

“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgement of exceptional leadership, as it reflects the opinions of the employees who work with a chief executive every day. I congratulate all of this year’s winners on this significant achievement,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “It can be a real recruiting advantage to have a top-rated CEO at the helm of a company who has strong support from his or her employees. The best CEOs are inspiring, trustworthy, innovative and can be great motivators for people to bring their best selves to work.”

When employees submit reviews about their company on Glassdoor, they are asked to rate various factors about their employment experience, including their overall satisfaction and other workplace attributes like senior management. As part of these ratings, employees are also asked to rate whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.

NEWTON, Mass. – April 3, 2018 – Leading video services provider, VideoLink, has partnered with video streaming specialist, Qumu, to offer live and on-demand webcast streaming to its in-house studio solution, ReadyCam®.

ISE 2018: Collaboration Solutions Expert AVI-SPL Says Companies Spark Success by Creating Meaningful Experiences for Customers and Employees

The global collaboration technology and services provider invites attendees at Integrated Systems Europe 2018 to discover new workplace solutions, discuss strategic insight with experts at AVI-SPL’s Booth 11-B130

AMSTERDAM – February 1, 2018 –  Exhibiting at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018, AVI-SPL, a global service provider specialising in communications and collaboration technology, will showcase today’s top workplace technology, while offering expert guidance, and detailing the organisational benefits for creating meaningful experiences for customers and employees.

A widely-used term by AVI-SPL, “meaningful experiences,” is the positive, emotional outcome felt by an organisation’s key stakeholders that can influence the company’s overall success. For organisations to create these meaningful experiences, implementing the right unified communications and collaboration technology solutions plays a critical role. The benefits include improved internal communication and culture, simplified processes, enhanced employee engagement, quicker speed to market, and increased customer satisfaction.

Multiple studies have found that employees and customers who have a sense of purpose and emotional connection with a company, are more likely to continue their relationship with, and become influential advocates for, an organisation. With the speed of technology development on top of the current abundance of solutions, organisations can struggle with identifying the correct path to follow, and generate an adverse effect – disengaged employees and impatient, frustrated customers.

“Identifying the correct technology roadmap and implementing it effectively to assure employee adoption can be an arduous process for a company to handle internally,” said John Zettel, CEO of AVI-SPL. “That’s where an experienced, independent provider can be highly advantageous.”

As a global collaboration solutions provider, AVI-SPL assists organisations across all geographies, including 85 percent of Fortune 100 companies, to enhance employee and customer experiences through technology. With its widespread international partner network, AVI-SPL works hand-in-hand with organisations in over 100 countries, providing expert strategy, design, integration, and managed services.

During ISE 2018, AVI-SPL’s collaboration experts will be available to offer strategic guidance to attendees seeking insight on how they can achieve their business goals and eliminate pain points.

Symphony 4.2 at AVI-SPL’s Booth 11-B130

Part of AVI-SPL’s award-winning managed services platform, Symphony 4.2 is a monitoring and management tool for AV, video, and unified communications and collaboration systems. Symphony provides vital statistics to monitor each system’s performance, launches video calls, and streamlines the way your meetings are organised, monitored, and managed.

Not yet released to the public, ISE attendees will be the first to view version 4.2 prior to its launch this Spring.
