September 19, 2018 – CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – TruQua Enterprises was recently ranked on Entrepreneur’s 2018 Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with employee engagement platform and service provider Energage. The Top Company Cultures list has placed TruQua as the #49 company in the Small Company category. TruQua is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.
“Our company culture is strongly tied to our core values of ‘Smart. Driven. Nice.’” says TruQua Enterprises Founder and Partner Scott Cairncross. “Our employees support each other because we all believe that one person’s success is everyone’s success. In return, we support our employees by giving them high levels of autonomy, while even supporting their personal goals.”
“We started TruQua only eight years ago. From the beginning, we’ve placed importance on developing an exceptional and exciting company culture, and as a result of this, we have built a strong culture of high trust, connection, ownership, belonging and meaning that creates genuine drive and motivation,” says Cairncross.
“Great company cultures don’t happen by accident. They happen because leaders understand how to create excellent working environments, and how to make everyone share the same mission,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 2018 Top Company Cultures list is a great celebration of companies that are doing it right, and it should serve as inspiration for everyone who leads a team.”
The full list, presenting a total of 150 companies categorized as small, midsize or large companies—with 74 or fewer employees, 75-299 employees and more than 300 employees respectively— is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.
“Becoming a Top Company Cultures winner isn’t something an organization can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement which organizations have to work for. Based on our decade of research, we have come to view workplace culture is the only remaining sustainable competitive business advantage. Great strategies can be copied, but culture cannot.”
Employees took online surveys, and the honorees were determined and ranked based solely on their survey feedback scores. Each company was measured in response to 24 questions on subject matters such as connection, alignment, effectiveness, leadership and management, as well as basics such as pay, benefits and flexibility.
To be considered for the ranking, the companies must have had at least 35 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2016, must be founder-led (at least 10% ownership of the company), and be headquartered in the U.S. There was no cost to participate in the survey. Individual employee responses were anonymous.

CHICAGO, IL, APRIL 03, 2018— TruQua Enterprises, LLC, a leading SAP software and services firm, today announced the release of Florence, the first Machine Learning platform built to integrate with SAP Systems. Deployed on the cloud, Florence provides a platform for the simple, and secure deployment of Machine Learning algorithms, with secure connectivity to SAP business systems.
As Machine Learning capabilities evolve, so does the need to integrate Data Science, Finance and Logistics groups quickly, with minimal disruption to existing business processes, which is how the idea for Florence originated. TruQua developed Florence to simplify the usage of Machine Learning models within SAP. Utilizing the Florence platform, SAP technologies such as S/4HANA, SAP HANA, Cloud Applications and Business Intelligence applications can now integrate seamlessly with Machine Learning predictions, without the need for additional infrastructure or software licenses.
With the announcement of Florence, TruQua has created three targeted offerings designed to help customers on their Machine Learning journey. These offerings include:
- First Steps with Florence – For customers who are just getting started with Machine Learning. A six-week engagement where customers work with Data Scientists to define the use case, build and initial model and integrate it with their business systems.
- Targeted Business Need – A five-week engagement to create an initial model and integrate it with existing business systems.
- Bridging Data Science and Finance- A two-week engagement to integrate Machine Learning models into a customer’s existing business systems.
