SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), today announced that it has been named 21 on the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list from the Great Place to Work® Institute. Cadence is one of only 25 companies selected for this list from over 1,100 corporations worldwide. Selection for this prestigious recognition is acknowledgment for the high levels of commitment and engagement of the global Cadence team of over 6500 employees and the company's commitment to its One Cadence—One Team culture.
Cadence is comprised of a diverse team of employees who say they are given the opportunity to innovate and partner with the world's most exciting technology companies to build products that are transforming lives.

"The Cadence culture is a competitive differentiator worldwide and this 'World's Best' ranking confirms what we already know – that innovation starts with our people and our employees' commitment to our culture drives our success," said Tina Jones, senior vice president of Global Human Resources at Cadence. "Operating globally as one team, Cadence employees are passionate about collaborating to develop innovative technologies, and we are proud to work for a company that provides us with opportunities for personal growth and such meaningful work."
The Cadence one team approach can also be seen in its employee commitment to giving back to the communities where they live and work. Employees are inspired by the Cadence community programs, which include a global matching gift program, a community portal providing volunteer opportunities to employees and a global Volunteer Time Off benefit, which provides employees five paid days off to volunteer. Cadence's commitment to communities can also be seen through its University Donation Program where the company donates software to over 1000 universities around the globe.
