pride and satisfaction, combined with rigorous evaluations of workplace
practices, policies, perks and demographics.

“At JDA, we like to say we are a culture, not a company, because our
core values transcend just words on a page, to being infused into
everything that we do,” said Nathalie Carruthers, chief human resources
officer, JDA. “The culture that runs through JDA’s local and global
offices, both virtually and locally is vibrant. It’s bringing together

making JDA an awesome place to work.”

top priority for us. I’m proud to see us offering a multitude of
development opportunities, as well as charity and volunteer work to
enrich associates’ lives and inspire us all to do our very best,
personally and professionally,” continued Carruthers.

JDA’s mantra is to ‘Live Inspired,’ encouraging associates to take one
day of paid volunteer time off each year to serve at a charity of their
choice within their local community. JDA recognizes that participating
in these activities will enrich and inspire the lives of its associates.
JDA also helps associates ‘Live Inspired’ professionally through

development opportunities. As a result, JDA’s engagement scores among
its associates are at an all-time high with average associate tenure in
the 6+ year range, best-in-class for a major technology company.

Leadership” program develops high-potential women and the JDA Women’s
Interest Network focuses on mentoring, sponsoring and developing women
at all levels to reach their full potential. Its award-winning Wednesdays

favorable,” said Denise Gredler, founder & CEO for BestCompaniesAZ,
program consulting partner. “These winners should be very proud of their
