The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
It's a great honor to once again be recognized as the #1 top workplace for small companies in the Bay Area by such a well-respected organization as the Bay Area News Group, said Katherine Rincon, SVP of Marketing at Striim. It's extremely competitive in the Bay Area, and specifically in the Silicon Valley, to attract and retain top talent. By offering the opportunity to work on leading-edge technology in a fun and nurturing company culture, Striim continues to earn the satisfaction, motivation, and respect of its employees.
Top Workplaces is more than just recognition, said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.
Becoming a Top Workplace isn't something organizations can buy, Claffey said. It's an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It's a big deal.
