Built In Names Workiva a Best Workplace of 2021
Built In, an online community dedicated to helping tech professionals and job seekers, released its annual Best Places to Work lists. The awards include companies of all sizes in the eight largest tech markets across the U.S.
Workiva Inc. (NYSE:WK) Ranked 68 on the list of Best Workplaces in Colorado. Workiva was recognized for having exemplary compensation, benefits and culture programs, and for showing a commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across their organization. Additionally, Workiva’s internal response to the COVID-19 pandemic and their move to support a remote workforce was heavily considered.
Since moving to 100% remote work on March 23, 2020, Workiva has made it a priority to provide employees with the resources and support they need – not just to work, but to take care of themselves and their families.
Initiatives have included: weekly all-company virtual meetings hosted by CEO Marty Vanderploeg, COO Julie Iskow, and others; adding extra vacation days; conducting anonymous surveys to help gauge and address employee well-being; and formalizing a flexible work policy.
Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer at Built In commented, “These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees. The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”
