Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of Best Workplaces For 2020

Inc. Magazine

Boston, MA and San Francisco, CA - Litmus, the leader in email marketing, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent 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.

Litmus is not only leading the email solution category in customer and product success but employee growth, both professionally and personally. Being named a Best Workplace by Inc., Litmus offers employee benefits and perks, such as:

  • Regular volunteering projects to support local communities
  • Designated Volunteer Time Off (VTO)
  • Opportunity to work in one of the three Litmus offices, completely remote, or a combination
  • Free lunch and snacks every day in the offices
  • Learning and development tools, both online and in-person, needed to succeed for everything from computer equipment to career development
  • Regular outings and get-togethers to connect with each other and celebrate achievements

“Because of the leadership capabilities, technical abilities and work ethic of our great employees across all levels, it allows us, at Litmus, to partner with major global brands across every industry, including 80 percent of the Fortune 100,” said Erik Nierenberg, CEO of Litmus. “We strongly believe there’s no better place to work than Litmus, and it’s because of the people. We’re a team of innovators, and it’s visible through the successful growth of our employees, our services and the success of our customers worldwide.”

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 Inc. ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.

The strongest engagement scores came from companies prioritizing 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.”

“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” said Scott Omelianuk, Inc. magazine editor-in-chief. “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.
