LAS VEGAS – July 20, 2021 — AGS today announced that it was named among the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation® and in Metro Atlanta for 2021 – the fifth consecutive year that AGS has won the coveted nationwide and Atlanta distinction.
AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez said, “After the challenging pandemic year that we all just went through, winning the Best and Brightest in the nation and Atlanta for the fifth straight year is even more meaningful. Despite the fact that nearly all of us were working remotely, we prioritized internal communication to help sustain our employee-focused culture and make it through the pandemic as an even stronger and more cohesive team, with a bright future ahead.”
Out of the 1,000 companies that submitted nominations for the spring 2021 Best and Brightest national award, only 113 were named to the prestigious Best and Brightest list, putting AGS in the top 11 percent of all companies nominated.
And for the Atlanta Metro area, where AGS has an R&D center and game development studios spread across Duluth and Midtown, AGS was among the top 11 percent of all Atlanta-based companies nominated, with 107 companies selected out of 1,000 nominations.
The competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in
operations and employee enrichment that lead to increase productivity and financial performance.
Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention, and more.
Winners were selected following confidential, third-party employee surveys, and the awards process
was audited, designed, and scored by an independent market research firm.
