PHOENIX -- For the second consecutive year, the Arizona Diamondbacks were named among Valley companies as one of the "Best Places to Work," when the Phoenix Business Journal and BestCompaniesAZ announced their list of 2008 recipients at an award luncheon today at the Arizona Biltmore. The D-backs ranked 9th among medium-sized companies with 101-250 full-time employees.

Founded in 2003, the "Best Places to Work" program ranks Valley companies through a third-party administered employee survey. The areas surveyed include various parts of employee life, including workplace environment, leadership direction, culture and management practices. Hundreds of companies were nominated for the award and 105 companies overall were named a "Best Places to Work" in the micro-, small-, medium-, large- and extra large-sized company categories. The D-backs were the first professional sports organization to receive the honor in 2007 where they received a 15th place ranking.

"Our employees are the backbone of our organization," said Arizona Diamondbacks' President Derrick Hall. "We are proud of the family-friendly environment we have created here and truly value this recognition."

D-backs employees operate under core values established by the leadership team that provide true framework for effective decision making. Those values include investing into the people who work for the organization, cultivating and enhancing relationships with employees, establishing integrity by accepting individual and collective responsibility, foster learning throughout the organization while considering outside points of view, and expecting positive results from the organization both on and off the field.

Employees receive a number of benefits working for the D-backs, including quarterly company outings, roundtable meetings between management and employees and a rotating council comprised of members from all levels of the organization focusing on enhancing company events and culture.

In addition to this recognition, PHOENIX magazine named the Arizona Diamondbacks as one of the best places to work in their November 2008 edition.
