Foundation Software, LLC, developer of FOUNDATION, America’s #1 construction accounting software, has received the Top Workplaces USA Award administered by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that turns employee feedback into business intelligence and opportunities for employer recognition. Over the last 15 years, Energage has surveyed over 20 million employees at 66,000 organizations across 54 markets.
To be recognized for the award, companies must receive positive feedback from their employees and score positively on 15 comparative culture drivers that Energage says are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
Reflecting on the award, President and CEO of Foundation Software Mike Ode praised his employees for the success of the business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This past year was a tough one for companies all over, and we were no exception.” Ode said. “In Mid-March, our entire office of over 365 people was suddenly working remotely in a blink. We had to figure out quickly how to collaborate, serve our clients and keep the momentum going without the advantage of being face-to-face.”

“But that is the great thing about building your business around good people,” Ode said, “they come together and drive success. I couldn’t be prouder of what they’ve accomplished this past year and every year.”
Foundation encourages health and wellness with extensive wellness programs, including free gym access and onsite personal training and fitness classes. With many employees unable to participate in these activities during the pandemic, Foundation adjusted to connect them virtually. Employees meet online to attend yoga and boot camp classes, as well as compete in virtual fitness challenges.
Eric Rubino, Energage CEO, acknowledged how tough COVID-19 working conditions have been. When the Top Workplace USA Award recipients were announced, he praised employers for giving employees a platform to discuss their experience by participating in the survey.
