Perforce Software is a Finalist in San Francisco Business Times’ Best Places to Work 2010

Alameda, Calif., April 2, 2010—Alameda-based Perforce Software, a leading software development toolmaker, is a finalist in the San Francisco Business Times and the San Jose/Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Best Places to Work. This is Perforce’s 3rd consecutive nomination and since last year’s competition, the company has grown and is now in the 101-500 employee category.

“Our workplace is dynamic and constantly evolving,” explained Allison Banks, Perforce Software’s director of human resources. “We work to create an environment that brings out the best in people— a workplace that motivates people to constantly do better, to avoid stagnation, and to have a chance to blossom.”

“There’s a lot of evidence that suggests professional satisfaction and happiness is non-monetary,“ said Banks. “While our staff is well-rewarded, we understand it is equally important to provide satisfying work, close relationships and opportunities to live a fulfilling life.”
