VIENNA, Va. – June. 9, 2022 – The Institute of Excellence in Sales (IES), an organization that helps sales leaders around the globe attract, retain, motivate, and elevate top-tier sales talent, announced the eight companies that have achieved its Premier Sales Employer designation for 2022.

  • Akamai
  • Carahsoft

“Every company with a sales organization is challenged with attracting and retaining top tier talent and over the past two years, it’s gotten harder. We created the PSE designation for companies that have built a strong culture that is geared towards growth, development, and success for the sales team members,” said Fred Diamond, Cofounder and President of the Institute for Excellence in Sales.

“Through all the change, one thing remains the same: success in sales comes down to showing a commitment to the customer – which is what all of these companies continue to do while proividing an exceptional workplace for growth, achievement, and advancement for their sales people.”

Premier Sales Employers were selected by an independent judging panel for their role in supporting sales professionals. Judging criteria included recognition programs, marketing activities, and culture to support the company’s sales efforts.  IES will distribute the guides to major career service organizations for top-tier talent to find optimal employment opportunities, as well as to universities and professional organizations serving career sales professionals. Companies are also presented with an IES Premier Sales Employer badge to highlight their designation as strong places to work for sales professionals.
