HDS earns fourth consecutive “best of the best” ranking for its Hitachi Spirit, exceptional team atmosphere and transparent culture

June 26, 2015 – Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. today announced that it was selected by Fortune and work culture experts Great Place to Work® as one of 2015’s 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in the United States.

Fortune, a global leader in business journalism, and Great Place to Work anonymously polled nearly 90,000 millennials using Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey, Trust Index©, to create this year’s list. The list honors companies that understand employee happiness and satisfaction ultimately align with the long-term success of a company and its clients.

There were 748 Hitachi Data Systems employees who participated in the survey, with the majority handing out high rankings for the company’s friendly team environment, employee empowerment, flexible working arrangements and a positive team spirit that prioritises customers above all else. “The Hitachi Spirit and our culture here at HDS is highly valued by our employees. We’re honored to be among the companies recognised as one of the Best Workplaces for Millennials,” said Scott Kelly, chief human resources officer at Hitachi Data Systems. “Our vision and Hitachi’s Social Innovation strategy is especially appealing to millenials. They want to be part of an energized, fun and nurturing culture that empowers each individual to make an impact not just on our business, but to society…that’s what Social Innovation is all about.”


“Hitachi Data Systems is ruled by the Hitachi Spirit, a combination of trust, integrity and a pioneering spirit,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Great Place to Work® Reviews’ Vice President and Senior Editor. “The Hitachi Spirit indeed seems to pervade the workplace and, as a result, the overwhelming majority of employees report a friendly team atmosphere.”
