I treat them as the passionate, engaged, concerned individuals that they are.” She’s open to their feedback and doesn’t boss them around. “The pecking order has disappeared.

Best Places to Work: #3 Small Employer is LAN Systems

Allison Shirreffs, Contributing Writer  - Atlanta Business Chronicle LAN Systems CEO Mary Hester wasn’t convinced her company’s top three finish in last year’s Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Best Places to Work competition wasn’t a fluke. “This is a tough business,” she says of the IT solutions business. “We can’t always make our employees happy.” Don’t tell that to LAN Systems employees.
