Leading automated speech recognition company adds to growing list of awards for company culture and technological excellence
SAN FRANCISCO, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Deepgram, a leading automatic speech recognition software company, today announced that it was named to Inc. Magazine's Best Workplaces list for the second consecutive year. The annual Best Workplaces list is a result of a comprehensive analysis of U.S.-based companies that have built an exceptional company culture. This year companies were evaluated on their ability to create a collaborative and supportive work environment for in-person and remote employees as a result of the pandemic.
Deepgram is honored among 475 companies that were selected based on the quality of employee responses to an independent survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. Each company submission was evaluated based on a number of categories, including company culture, management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth.
"We're proud to receive this recognition from Inc. Magazine for the second year in a row," said Scott Stephenson, CEO and co-founder of Deepgram. "As of March 2022, Deepgram's team has grown 60% YoY, and this acknowledgment is a testament to our commitment to maintain and even improve our culture as we grow. Our mission at Deepgram is to power the next generation of voice experiences, and we know prioritizing our people is critical to achieving that vision."
As a remote-first company, Deepgram believes that great talent can be found anywhere. While most employees work out of their home offices, Deepgram understands the benefit of in person collaboration and facilitates opportunities to leverage the power of in person connection. Through flexible schedules, unlimited PTO and sixteen weeks of fully paid family leave, the company encourages employees to take the time they need to rest and recharge.
"At Deepgram, we emphasize curiosity, growing together, and being human," said Jenny Draxl, Head of People at Deepgram. "Our culture, like our product, is constantly learning and evolving. We believe that diverse perspectives foster a healthier work environment and enable us to find the best solutions for our customers. We strive to nurture a culture that empowers employees to find balance."
In addition to Inc's Best Workplaces for 2022, Deepgram has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including:
