OCT. 17, 2017
Square Root recognized for a fourth year by FORTUNE Magazine and Great Place to Work® on the Annual Best Small Workplaces List.
Square Root, developers of Store Relationship Management (SRM) solutions for retail and auto enterprises, has been recognized by Fortune and Great Place to Work® as the 13th best small workplace in the United States on their 2017 Best Small Workplaces list, published today on Fortune.com. This is the fourth consecutive year Square Root has been recognized for its exceptional workplace culture by Fortune and Great Place to Work.
The ranking is based on inputs from 74,000 employee surveys across hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The 2017 Best Small and Medium Workplace recognition is given out to companies based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie at work. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
“To be recognized even once by Fortune and Great Place to Work is a tremendous honor,” said Chris Taylor, Founder and CEO of Square Root. “So it goes without saying that to successfully rank for the fourth consecutive year is something we at Square Root take great pride in.”
