very rewarding because it confirms that we are meeting our goal of becoming a
world-class workplace. It's also a good testament to our leadership,
especially our president, Jim Morris, who just finished his first year at
GlobalSCAPE embarked on many new workplace initiatives over this year
including new office space build-outs; employee recognition and performance
review programs; and enhanced health care and employee stock option benefits,
which ranked second on the list of what employees look for from employers.

customers," said Jim Morris. "We've worked hard to create an environment
where employees feel a sense of ownership in their jobs and are rewarded for
making a difference. This ownership and freedom has a direct impact on our
business strength and overall customer success."
