SAN FRANCISCO, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fleetsmith, the management and security platform for Apple devices, has been recognized by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of its Best Places to Work in the Bay Area for 2020. Among peer companies ranked in the Small Workplace category, Fleetsmith was recognized for creating an exceptional workplace highly valued by its employees.
The award is special because employees decide the winners—Fleetsmith employees voluntarily completed an assessment that measured their satisfaction in leadership and collaborative culture, personal engagement, compensation, and benefits. Companies were evaluated across those categories by the San Francisco Business Times and its independent research partner, and the award recognizes companies whose employees rated them the highest.
In the current uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Fleetsmith is more committed than ever to being a Best Place to Work. Fleetsmith has continued supporting its now fully remote employees with mental health resources and work from home stipends, hosting virtual happy hours, coffee chats, and seminars, and giving teams flexible hours to balance new pressures when working from home.
"This is more than an award for us; it's a reflection of our culture and values and how hard we work to bring them to life every day," said Zack Blum, co-founder and CEO of Fleetsmith. "We stand out to job seekers and employees not only because of our ambitious mission, but also because of our focus on our people. I'm proud of the transparent, collaborative, and compassionate workplace we've built. Especially during these trying times, we're doing everything we can to ensure that our employees are healthy, feel valued, and are excited by the work they do."
