OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored Fivetran, the leading automated data integration provider, as one of the 2020 Best Small & Medium Workplaces™. The ranking is based on confidential survey feedback representing more than 189,000 employees working at small- and medium-sized businesses in the United States.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and company culture research firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies that best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
“Building a strong company culture has always been a top priority for our company and something we continue to see as a significant driver of our ongoing success,” said Amanda Townsend, VP of global people operations at Fivetran. “We’re especially proud to be recognized during such a challenging year. It speaks volumes about our team’s hard work, dedication and the supportive, inclusive, transparent environment we’ve created and work diligently to grow every day."
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces stand out for excelling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces. Within the past year, Fivetran created innovative ways for its team to stay connected and foster a positive, collaborative environment while employees work remotely. For example, the company held a virtual Olympics for global teams, and a wellness week with activities and guest speakers to encourage employee self care. Fivetran also instituted open office hours for employees to discuss any struggles they are experiencing in relation to social justice issues and provided corporate matching for any cause they wish to donate to.
“Best Workplaces like Fivetran have built dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces founded on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but also to do well for their businesses.”
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Fivetran also was ranked as a Best Small Workplace for 2019 by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
