I’m so proud to announce we made the annual Great Place to Work list in Fortune magazine this year! This is one of those moments in a company’s history that is truly rewarding for everyone because it takes a team effort to build and grow a great company!
By the end of 2015, we grew our headcount by 80% and realized we needed to redefine our own brand, as a company. So at the start of 2016, we refined our company logo, our mission, and our values. After much work consulting with our internal employees and external customers, we had a new logo, a revised mission and created six new values that reflect who we are today: Excellence, Integrity, Customers for Life, Innovation, Urgency, and Great Place to Work became the pillars of our culture.
By focusing on the Great Place to Work value, we won our first two awards earlier this year for being a top workplace according to Glassdoor, and the SF Business Times. For the second half of the year, we focused our efforts on empowering our employees to help us build a great workplace; we launched some tools to build trust and transparency into our culture, and today we found out that we made the coveted Great Place to Work list!
I am totally excited about winning this award and can’t wait to celebrate this victory with our winning team! Cheers to all our employees who do great work for our great workplace!
