Az Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ recognize JDA for its superior philanthropy efforts, workplace culture, and associate engagement and satisfaction ratings

JDA Software Group, Inc., today announced it has been named a 2017 Most Admired Company in Arizona by Az Business magazine for the second year in a row. This closely follows JDA’s again being named a top company to work for by AzCentral. These two prestigious awards further highlight JDA’s focus on associate engagement and satisfaction and commitment to its core values of Results, Relentless and Teamwork.

“We are proud to yet again be recognized as a most admired company in Arizona, as this speaks to the heart of the core values which fosters a philosophy of collaboration. Our team is obsessed with delivering customer results, and driven to relentlessly innovate, which ultimately leads to the customer’s – and JDA’s – success,” said Girish Rishi, chief executive officer, JDA. “People join JDA because of our workplace culture, career and leadership development programs. The enrichment of these programs lends itself naturally to associate satisfaction, while attracting the next generation of supply chain professionals and leaders at JDA.”

Winners were selected by Az Business magazine and BestCompaniesAZ, along with a panel of industry experts. The 2017 Most Admired Companies in Arizona represent the companies that excel in the following areas: Workplace Culture, Leadership Excellence, Corporate and Social Responsibility, Customer Opinion and Innovation.

JDA is headquartered in Scottsdale and counts 700 leaders and executives and 300+ associates locally in Arizona.  JDA prides itself on driving commitment to learning and innovation, while fostering teamwork as a critical component to success. JDA’s engagement scores among its associates are at record highs, and average associate tenure is in the 10+ year range, best in class for a major technology company.

JDA encourages associates’ success as the heart and soul of the company, with a focus on developing all associates to realize their full potential. This aids in JDA’s ability to attract and retain top talent while contributing to its consistent growth, profitability, and industry-leading products and solutions. For example, all associates are allowed one day of paid volunteer time off each year to serve at a charity of their choice within the local community, as JDA recognizes that participating in these activities will enrich and inspire the lives of its associates. JDA also has a keen focus on developing high-potential women, with its “Winning Leadership” program, which highlights JDA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

“This is the most comprehensive corporate awards program in Arizona. And due to the breadth of the areas it examines, companies who are selected join a prestigious group of employers in Arizona. This program recognizes the wonderful contributions and impact these most admired companies bring to the state,” says Denise Gredler, founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and co-founder of the Most Admired Companies program.

JDA and all of the award recipients were celebrated at an awards reception being held today, at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale.
