Workiva has again made one of Fortune Magazine’s “Great Places to Work” list for 2018.

The Ames-based financial reporting software company was on the business magazine’s list of 20 best large technology companies to work for, with more than 95 percent of employees surveyed agreeing to statements such as “I’m proud to tell others I work here,” “people care about each other here” and “people celebrate special events around here.”

The company’s ratings were based off 874 anonymous survey responses from Workiva employees during the summer of 2017.

In a statement, CEO Matthew Rizai said the company’s founders have worked hard to build a culture around small teams of people that enjoy working with each other.

“Workiva is proud to be named to such a prestigious list that includes some of the most successful software companies in the world,” he said.

Workiva was previously on Fortune’s lists for best workplaces for millennials, women and technology in 2016.

The company was founded in 2008 under the name WebFilings, but changed its name and became a public company on the New York Stock Exchange in 2014. It employs about 1,300 people and maintains 15 other locations other than its headquarters in the Iowa State Research Park, where it employs approximately 500 people.
