Workiva Inc. (NYSE:WK), the company powering transparent reporting for a better world, has been recognized for the fifth consecutive year as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by Great Place To Work® and Fortune magazine.
“At Workiva, we believe you can’t build transformative technology without a strong, engaged team. Our people are the foundation of our success, and that belief has been at the core of our company since day one,” said Julie Iskow, president and chief executive officer, Workiva. “Our core values and principles continue to serve us well through our people-first culture, prioritizing customers – their experience and their success, continuous innovation, and a commitment to impact. After all, this is what makes Workiva, Workiva.”
Great Place to Work, the leading global authority on workplace culture, selects the companies named to Fortune's Best Companies to Work For list each year. Companies are selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for all employees.
To determine the 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2023, Great Place To Work analyzed anonymous survey responses from more than half a million employees, who shared confidential quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization's culture. Additionally, companies on the list responded to six essay questions describing their efforts to offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses.
In response to the Great Place to Work survey, 93% of employees said Workiva is a great place to work, compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company, and 95% said they are proud to tell others they work at Workiva.
In addition to an inclusive and innovative culture, Workiva offers competitive compensation and flexible benefits to support employees’ financial, physical, emotional, and social needs. The company offers a “work where you work best” philosophy where nearly all employees are eligible to work remotely.
In 2022, Workiva added an annual company-wide wellbeing day to its PTO (paid time off) calendar. The company also globalized its employee stock purchase plan, increased financial support for employees who are expanding their families through adoption or surrogacy, and announced a geographic mobility policy that enables employees to work from almost anywhere around the world for up to 25 days per year.
“It’s in times like these that the best workplaces separate themselves,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO, Great Place To Work. “In a challenging economy, many companies reduce investments in their people and scale back goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. But these companies, the 100 Best, relentlessly pursue a better work experience for every employee, and if anything, double down on the employee experience regardless of title, tenure, gender, or ethnicity. These companies know this is how you increase performance, productivity, and your innovation velocity when your firm needs it the most.”
Workiva was also recently named to Great Place To Work’s Best Workplaces for Parents™, Best Workplaces for Millennials™, and Fortune Best Workplaces in Technology™ lists and received an “AAA” rating in the 2022 MSCI ESG Ratings Assessment.
