SAN MATEO, CA (May 16, 2019) – Openprise, a leading provider of data orchestration platforms for marketing and sales, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019, the publication’s fourth annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
The Inc. 2019 Best Workplaces list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of the nearly 2,000 companies that believed they could win as a best workplace, Inc. singled out just 346 finalists.
From the beginning, Openprise has cultivated a unique corporate culture around its core values: Trust, Respect, Empathy, Openness, and Commitment. These values are the starting point for every interaction employees have—with each other, with partners, with investors, and with customers.
“This award recognizes our employees, and reflects our unique culture and core values,” said Ed King, Founder and CEO, Openprise. “The way we live these values every day at Openprise is why we’re able to continue to attract and retain exceptional talent, and grow at more than 300% a year.”
According to King, Openprise’s focus on core values and a meaningful mission are what makes it one of Inc.’s Best Workplaces. The company’s core values are reflected in corporate policies as well. For example, given the high level of trust, respect, and openness team members show for each other, most employees work from home three days a week.
“Openprise employees are passionate about building great products that solve everyday business problems and make our customers’ lives better—and if we can enjoy ourselves while we’re at it—so much the better,” said King.
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. After gathering, analyzing, and auditing the data, Inc. ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. On average, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work. By contrast, the survey indicated that 100% of Openprise employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
