Ping-pong tables are great, and snacks are nice to have. Competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits packages are wonderful. But what really makes a workplace great?
There’s no one tried and true recipe, but there are a few commonalities that great places to work share. One is a mission you can get behind. Another is being surrounded by people who bring out the best in you, and you from them. For short we’ll call this, culture.
The value of culture can’t be overstated and for many of us, a good cultural fit is a driving factor in whether or not we’d like to bring our talents to a particular organization. Once you join an organization, feel part of the team, and enjoy the work, you want to tell others so they can enjoy the benefits, too.
That’s where the Great Places To Work index comes in handy. And, by the way, Wrike recently received its top 25 Great Places To Work®!
Wrike is one of the top 25 Great Places To Work® for 2021
Great Places To Work® is the definitive source to gauge company culture and employee engagement. Their annual survey uses the Emprising™ employee experience software, trusted by thousands of the World’s Best Workplaces™. The results of an independent survey determined which companies made it to the list.
Here’s what Wrike employees say:
When compared to the typical U.S.-based company, the survey results tell the story: Wrike is a great place to work and to start or advance your career:
We’ve come a long way, and our team and product have grown tremendously since our founding in 2006. This year is already on pace to be our best yet as we accelerate our mission to be the leading platform for the enterprise, bringing all departments together into a single digital workspace.
On a bit of a winning streak
Along with the Great Places To Work® certification, last December, Forrester honored Wrike as a Leader in collaborative work management (CWM) for the third year in a row. Then, 2021 went off to a roaring start with GetApp naming Wrike a category leader for CWM. Next, Capterra put us on the shortlist for project management software, followed by Software Advice tabbing Wrike as one of the five most popular project planning tools. Everything capped off last week in the biggest moment of our company’s history with Citrix completing its acquisition of Wrike!
