LINDON, Utah, Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BambooHR, the leading software provider powering the strategic evolution of HR in small and medium businesses, today announced it has been named as one of the 2017 Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE for the second consecutive year. BambooHR ranked #20 among the winning organizations in its group.
This ranking surveyed 74,000 employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. BambooHR earned a spot on this list based on co-workers' assessment of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace.
"As a company rooted in the business of empowering organizations' most valuable asset, its employees, maintaining a positive workplace environment continues to be a top priority for us," said Ben Petersen, CEO and co-founder of BambooHR. "Our incredible growth wouldn't be possible without our dedicated employees, and we're extremely proud of what this recognition symbolizes."
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
"The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

About the Best Small & Medium Workplaces
The ranking was based on anonymous feedback from more than 74,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Employees completed a Trust Index™ survey with more than 50 questions assessing pride, camaraderie, executive effectiveness, innovation, benefits, professional development and other elements of a great workplace. Scores also considered organizations' performance relative to their size and industry, as well as their ability to provide a great workplace for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do. Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level.
