Madison, Wis. – Mar. 30, 2021 – Singlewire Software has been named the 2021 Top Workplace in Madison by the Wisconsin State Journal. Singlewire was recognized in the mid-size company category, and Paul Shain, President and CEO of Singlewire, was recognized as the top leader of a mid-size company. Winners were selected based on feedback from employees that focused on areas such as pay, confidence in company leadership, work-life balance, and company values.

Whether it’s the products we develop or the company culture we foster, Singlewire Software has always been focused on making people’s well-being our top priority,” said Paul Shain, President and CEO of Singlewire Software. “This achievement is a testament to the outstanding team we have cultivated and the hard work they put in every day to make Singlewire a great place to work.”
