LOS ALTOS, Calif., May 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Contrast Security, a leader in application security, is pleased to be named one of Inc. magazine's "Best Workplaces" for 2020. Hitting the newsstands on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the annual list of winners will be featured in Inc. magazine's May/June 2020 issue, and will also be included in a prominent Inc.com feature.
The prestigious list recognizes the top U.S. private companies that have created exceptional cultures through their profound workplace experiences, employee engagement, and far-reaching benefits. Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. selected 395 companies that embody America's best and brightest cultures.
"During times of uncertainty, maintaining corporate culture is essential to keeping our employees engaged and happy," said Babak Dehnad, vice president of People at Contrast Security. "This, in turn, translates into a greater focus on delivering great products and experiences for customers, which are critical measurements for us. Empowering our employees to work collaboratively and innovate without constraint is a critical business enabler during any economic climate. Our dynamic workplace culture translates into continuous communications and performance feedback and improvement, whether our employees are in one of our physical office locations or in a home office setting."
Inc.'s 2020 Best Workplaces is a series of rankings conducted by Quantum Workplace. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey on topics, including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Great workplaces demonstrated positive reviews on performance management, employee recognition, and diversity. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees indicated they are engaged by their work, with the strongest engagement scores coming from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work.
"Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership," says Inc. magazine Editor-in-Chief Scott Omelianuk. "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."
Contrast Security is pioneering a transformative approach to application security (AppSec), and its workplace culture is a critical enabler of its success. Being named an Inc. Best Workplaces builds on previous recognitions that include making Forbes' "Next Billion-Dollar Startups 2019 List."
