KnowBe4 ranked number four on the small and medium workplaces list; 2021 marks the fourth consecutive time KnowBe4 has ranked within the top four on this list
Great Place to Work® has honored KnowBe4 as one of the 2021 Fortune Best Workplaces in Technology™. This is KnowBe4’s fourth time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at number four. Earning a spot means that KnowBe4 is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Best Workplaces in Technology award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 122,000 current employees across the U.S. In that survey, 96% of KnowBe4’s employees said KnowBe4 is a great place to work. This number is 37% higher than the average U.S. company.
“It is always such a thrill to continue to place on lists for best workplaces in the U.S.,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “We make a very concerted effort in everything that we do to be the best place employees have ever worked. Transparency, open communication and a fun atmosphere all help contribute to KnowBe4’s success and have helped to earn us a spot in the top four on this list for the fourth consecutive year.”
The Best Workplaces in Technology list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“It’s more than fancy perks at the Best Workplaces in Technology. Employees at the companies praised their leaders for their incredible transparency and care during this pandemic year,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, VP global recognition, Great Place to Work®. “Even while working from home, employees said they felt more connected to their colleagues and their communities than ever.”
In 2020, KnowBe4 also ranked as a Best Workplace for Millennials and Women.
