SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – May 16, 2019 – HireVue has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019, its third time achieving a 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, 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. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.
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 Quantum Workplace ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 74.2 percent of employees surveyed across all participating companies 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.”
“Everyone at HireVue has a shared sense of purpose as we work together with our customers to democratize hiring and help them find the best talent, faster,” said Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO at HireVue. “ At HireVue, we’re committed to a customer focused culture of creativity, respect and transparency across our team It’s an honor for our company to earn a spot on the Inc. Best Workplaces list.”
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:
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says 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.”
