Home Sweet Home: Go Daddy Bucks Offshoring Trend

March 25, 2008; 02:56 AM

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The offshoring of American jobs is once again in the news from companies announcing how they plan to move positions overseas to big government contracts being awarded to European firms. At least one top tech company is maintaining its commitment to keep its workers on American soil. Go Daddy!

Go Daddys pledge comes on the heels of a recent study that indicates offshore spending is on the rise. In a December 2007 news release, Gartner, Inc., an information technology research company, predicted that offshore spending would grow by 40 percent in the U.S. during 2008.

Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons believes that keeping Go Daddys employees local ensures customer care representatives and developers can quickly respond to customer feedback, providing the most responsive support in the business.

We will not sacrifice quality just because it might save a few dollars, Parsons said. Providing the absolute best customer service has always been one of our hallmarks. It distinguishes us from the competition always has!

Go Daddy is the worlds largest domain name registrar, as well as a leading Web hosting company, and is considered a one-stop shop for anyone looking to develop an Internet presence. The company develops most all of its 40-plus products in-house, which keeps prices low. Go Daddy was awarded the Most Innovative Company in Arizona last year and now serves some 5 million customers worldwide.

While the company is currently evaluating its options for international development, such expansion would not result in a decrease in workers at U.S. offices.

Go Daddy is first and foremost an American company, he said. What we have here works!

Go Daddy employs more than 1,900 people and the fact it has not offshored a single job is an element that has drawn huge applause from audiences whenever the companys outspoken CEO speaks publicly.

Go Daddy has been ranked by The Business Journal as One of the Valleys Best Places to Work for four consecutive years. The company prides itself on its competitive salaries and generous performance rewards. CNN Money has even recognized Go Daddy for its extraordinary perks, which include paying selected employees mortgages for a year, giving away expense paid vacations, cars and large screen televisions. Go Daddy pays for the taxes on the prizes it awards too.

Go Daddy is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, and also has offices in Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, as well as Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Denver, Colorado and Washington D.C.
