JAN. 26, 2016
Austin software company earns national recognition for exceptional leadership and trust within the workplace.
Fortune and Great Place to Work® have named Square Root the second Best Small Workplace for Technology in the United States. Square Root, the Austin-based leader in Store Relationship Management (SRM) software, is one of five companies from the tech hub to be named to the 2016 list.
“The technology industry is extremely competitive for the best people, but we’ve been able to stand out by putting our team first,” said Chris Taylor, CEO of Square Root. “We believe everyone at Square Root is responsible for creating a culture that’s motivating and fulfilling. By embracing a partner mentality, we’re able to not only deliver great software, but also a great work environment. We’re honored to be recognized by Great Place to Work along with four other inspiring Austin companies.”

The Best Workplaces in Technology ranking is based on employee’s own assessments of their experiences of the camaraderie in the workplace, its career development, financial and non-financial rewards and the strength of its leadership team. Winning companies were selected based on evaluations of over 48,000 randomly-selected employees from 155 participating companies in the technology industry. Thirty companies were divided into their respective size categories, and companies that achieved the highest overall results were then ranked based on data about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace.
Square Root’s dedication to culture is based on its continual focus to protect its values through initiatives that allow team members opportunities to grow and succeed. Perks at Square Root include a flexible time off policy, health and wellness programs, and frequent team activities. In 2015, the company was nationally recognized as the second Best Small Place to Work, earned placement on Fortune’s list of Best Workplaces for Camaraderie, and named a Great Workplace for Women.
