6sense, the leading Account-Based Orchestration Platform, powered by AI, 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.
Hitting newsstands today in the June 2019 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, this 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. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.
“We are a team-first people-centric organization. We’ve designed our culture around comradery, continuous innovation, celebrating success, and dedication to listening to feedback from everyone at the company,” said 6sense CEO, Jason Zintak. “It’s because of our people and culture that our customers are successful and our product is a category leader. This recognition is a testament of our commitment to fostering a growth culture where employees feel valued and truly love coming to work every day.”
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. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—besting last year’s 72.1 percent.
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,” said 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.”
To be eligible, all companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
- 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
