PRESS RELEASE: Online Trading Academy Ranks In Top 10 of Orange County Register’s Top Workplaces


Irvine, CA, December 13, 2019 – Online Trading Academy ranked 8th place in OC Register’s Top Workplaces 2019 list for mid-sized companies. This is OTA’s 7th recognition as an OC Top Workplace, their 6th in a row. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”

Online Trading Academy proudly prioritizes the happiness and wellbeing of their team members. Employee care and workplace sustainability are held at high standards through daily practices of corporate transparency, employee empowerment, and an intense focus on maintaining a great culture. This commitment begins with a strong workforce that breathes the company values through love, innovative education and exceptional student support while operating with community and environmental sensitivity. “We are thrilled that our employees have so much passion and love for the company and our mission,” said Gene Longobardi, Chief Operating Officer. “It’s so inspiring to be part of a work environment where we all focus our energy on love and culture.”

OTA also recently won a bronze Stevie® Award in the technical innovation of the year category, named a top 50 franchise by Franchise Business Review for the third year in a row and certified as a Great Place to Work by independent analysts at Great Place to Work®.
