Inc. Names Weave to its Annual List of Best Workplaces 2020
Weave named one of Inc.’s highest-scoring businesses for the second year in a row
LEHI, UTAH, May 6, 2020– Weave, the complete business toolbox and fastest-growing company in tech, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of Best Workplaces for 2020. The 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.
In 2014, Weave was the first Utah-based company to be accepted to Y-Combinator. Since the founders’ training and extensive hard work to go from early-stage to now late-stage startup with a valuation of $970M, the internal values of being hungry, caring, and creative have remained integral to the fabric of the tech company’s culture.
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by 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.
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 is a different playbook from a decade ago when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“I’m grateful that Weave is being recognized for the second year in a row by Inc. But I know that’s because our team members have always come first,” said Brandon Rodman, Chief Executive Officer at Weave. “They are the ones who do all the work. Our goal remains to create the best possible environment for them to build, sell, and support our product. When we delight customers, profits and growth follow. That’s the order in which we do things at Weave, and that will never change.”
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
