APS’ mission is to make payroll and HR easier. To accomplish its mission, APS commits to taking care of its employees because satisfied workers positively impact customers and the community. Like many other businesses during the pandemic, APS’ workforce became more dispersed with off-site and on-site employees. As an essential business, APS was responsible to its employees and customers to continue operating with no disruption.

APS decided to implement two major initiatives in order to maintain a positive workplace culture:

1. Flexible Work Schedule: Introduction of a flexible work schedule to give staff peace of mind and job security while continuing business operations.
2. Technology Investment: Adoption of tools like Slack,, and Talkdesk to improve communication between employees and departments.

  • Do the right thing
  • Be your best
  • Serve others
  • Find the fun

“Here at APS, our focus is on people more than profit. We have to make sure our employees thrive so that our customers are successful. The pandemic presented us all with unique challenges and situations that were beyond our control, so we had to adapt with intention,” said Aaron Johnson, President and CEO at APS. “By adopting a flexible work schedule and investing in technology tools to improve communication, we can make better decisions that foster a healthy work culture with quality inclusion.”

“We’re excited to announce our second annual Tech Cares Award winners,” said TrustRadius CEO Vinay Bhagat. “The past two years have tested the tech community. We’ve been inspired by watching leaders in the B2B technology industry pursue meaningful progress in social, environmental, and cultural spaces. Not only do we feel that these companies are deserving of recognition–we also consider them a great example as we build a stronger future together.”

Each nominated organization had to be a B2B technology company that demonstrated strong corporate social responsibility in 2020 and 2021. Everyone was welcome to nominate an organization for this award, including those who work for or with the company. The TrustRadius research team thoroughly vetted all nominations.
