ARISTA – “Best Places to Work 2017”

by Atlanta Business Chronicle

ALPHARETTA, GA – September 7, 2017 – ARISTA, a company specializing in Employee Benefits, Wealth Management and Retirement Plans, has been named for the second time to the prestigious Atlanta Business Chronicle 2017 Atlanta’s Best Places to Work list. ARISTA is ranked No. 13 this year on the publication’s Small Companies list. Announced on September 6, the list recognizes successful Atlanta-area companies for their outstanding employee satisfaction and employee-oriented culture.

Growing up in a factory town in Indiana and going to college to be an engineer, I was always taught that great companies come from having great products. As a sales person in our industry, early in my career, I was taught that great companies come from having great sales people. But as a business owner for the past 12 years, I have learned that even having great products AND great sales people won’t ORGANICALLY create a great company. It takes much more than that. It takes intentionality, a real focus on putting PEOPLE first. And not just clients, the people you serve, but the people INSIDE your company,” said David Hatter, President, ARISTA. “I am often asked what’s our secret. Arista is built around a philosophy of PEOPLE first. At Arista, we are intentional. We are AIMING to build a company where great people will WANT to come… and to stay. We AIM to create an environment where the best people can have a rewarding career, be a part something special, work in a supportive environment and change the world in a positive way. That intentionality on people first … THAT’S our secret. It’s an honor to be recognized for the second time by our employees and Atlanta Business Chronicle for the outstanding workplace satisfaction and fantastic culture that makes ARISTA truly a great place to work.”

Each year, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, in partnership with Quantum Workplace – a global leader in workplace culture assessment – surveys the metro area’s employers to find those that have discovered how to become one of Atlanta’s Best Places To Work.

The Chronicle asks readers to nominate workplaces in metro Atlanta. Nominations are accepted at the Chronicle’s website. The Best Places to Work survey is conducted and published annually by Atlanta Business Chronicle as a means to recognize the companies focused on creating a positive, effective work environment for their employees.
