Workday, Google, salesforce.com and Polyvore are Among the Best Technology Workplaces as Rated by Employees
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 8, 2014 – Now more than ever, there seems to always be a new company entering the technology arena. This can make it challenging for job seekers to decide which workplace is the best fit for them. That’s why Great Place to Work®’s Great Rated!™ today released a list of the top 20 technology workplaces, as decided by employees themselves. Workday, Worldwide Technology and Ultimate Software rank at the top of the larger companies being recognized, while Visionist, Agilethought and Square Root are among those to take the prize for small and medium companies.
“Employers, and tech employers in particular, are competing for a small slice of the same pool of talent, and it can feel like there are not enough skilled workers to go around,” says Kim Peters, CEO of Great Rated!™. “While they use websites and recruiters to talk about their great workplaces, Great Rated! creates increased workplace transparency by offering insights into the companies, their hiring processes, and their employees’ workplace experience. We provide an easy way for job seekers to compare the strengths and benefits across multiple organizations so that they can find jobs they love, and we add authority to the employers’ own messaging.”
The 20 winning companies were selected based on the average scores of nearly 50,000 employees who were surveyed using the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work®’s employee assessment survey. Great Rated! ™ People’s Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Technology marks the first published list since the official launch of Great Rated!™, the site that gives job seekers the inside scoop on companies and their cultures.
