KnowBe4 named number 16 by Florida Trend magazine for company culture
KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For.
The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
“It’s an honor to be named number 16 on the list of 100 Best Companies in Florida,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Company culture is something that’s very important to us at KnowBe4. We focus on it daily and we’ve worked hard to try to perfect it. We have three rules that embody our work environment: do it right the first time; do it fast; and have fun while you do it.”
“This year we spoke with Millennial employees of the Best Companies to Work For to get their perspectives on their workplaces and work experiences,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard. “It’s clear that the Best Companies know how to attract Millennials and then engage them once they’ve been hired. Millennials want what every employee wants — a workplace environment that helps them be productive and a chance for input into how work gets done.”
"These best companies have figured it out!" says Florida Trend Publisher David Denor. "Providing their employees with an environment and culture that promotes growth both professionally and personally - all while delivering workplace benefits that lift employee morale and create loyalty... these best companies offer lessons we can all learn from."
The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.
