(CAMBRIDGE – May 10, 2011) – Xylotek Solutions, a full-service, IT consulting firm, was honoured with the 2011 Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Workforce Training & Development during a televised awards reception and presentation last night at Cambridge City Hall.

“We are honoured to be recognized for our focus on excellence in workforce training and development,” said Douglas Grosfield, President and CEO of Xylotek. “Our company’s success depends on the strength of our team. That’s why we are so committed to the personal and professional development of our staff. Their growth and success has played a pivotal role in where we are today.”

This award is given to businesses with projects or programs in place to help improve the knowledge, performance, and skill of their workforce.

“The thing that impresses me most about Xylotek is they are a company you can trust because they put the interests of their clients first,” said David Russell, CEO of Success With People Inc. “I know this because we have worked together over the past year to strengthen their systems for fully engaging employees, yet each change has been made with the primary goal of constantly improving the experience of their clients when being served by Xylotek employees.”
