OCT. 18, 2018
Company recognized five consecutive years for exceptional workplace culture by FORTUNE Magazine and Great Place to Work®
Square Root, creators of CoEFFICIENT®, an enterprise SaaS platform that unlocks the power of data for the world’s leading brands, today announced the company’s selection by FORTUNE Magazine and Great Place to Work®, as the 38th best small workplace in the United States on the 2018 Best Small and Medium Workplaces list. This is the fifth year in a row Square Root has been selected for the national award in recognition of its values-driven company culture.
As Square Root continues to grow, it’s company values — Think Big—Do Bigger, Be Customer Inspired, Partner, and Thrive — remain at the heart of how they work. Square Root champions an inclusive environment for all and crafts unique benefits to support authenticity. These benefits include a flexible schedule, paid parental leave, and even $3,000 yearly to “Learn Anything”. Among the many company benefits, Square Root celebrates all the special moments in an individual’s life, including a $1,500 bonus and sabbatical to commemorate an individual’s five-year anniversary with the company.
Additionally, Square Root organizes cross-team get-togethers, happy hours, and company events, like an annual summer Boat Party, to foster relationships across the company. To further nurture camaraderie, they provide wellness perks such as catered lunches on Fridays, a healthy snack bar, and twice weekly bootcamp. The recognition by FORTUNE marks the latest award spotlighting Square Root’s culture. In 2018, the company has been honored for its exceptional workplace both locally by the Austin Business Journal, and nationally, with inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list.
“Since Square Root’s founding, we’ve crafted a people-first environment, which champions collaboration, innovation, and feedback,” said Courtney Branson, Director of People and Culture at Square Root. “We weave our team’s suggestions into every aspect of our culture and this recognition by FORTUNE and Great Place to Work is a testament to the inspired culture we’ve built together.”
The ranking considered more than 112,000 rigorous employee surveys from small and medium-sized companies and evaluated more than 50 elements of the workplace experience, including trust in leadership, respect, fairness, and camaraderie in the workplace. The in-depth survey process also accounts for the overall consistency of employees’ daily experiences of innovation, company values, and the effectiveness of company leadership. A full list of 2018 Great Place to Work Best Small and Medium Workplaces rankings will be featured in Fortune magazine’s November issue on newsstands in late October and can be found online at Fortune.com.
