"This is the fifth year in a row we have been so honored by Computerworld and this is especially significant to us because the input for this award came straight from our employees," said Ken Sidon, president of Antares Management Solutions. "I am very encouraged in these tough economic times, when so much is asked of our employees, that our staff recognizes and acknowledges our commitment to them."
