LINDON, Utah, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BambooHR, the industry's leading software provider dedicated to powering the strategic evolution of HR in small and medium organizations, today announced that Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have named it one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Women. This comes on the heels of FORTUNE and Great Place to Work naming BambooHR a Best Small & Medium Workplace for the third consecutive year, and naming it a Best Workplace for Millennials and one of the 40 Best Workplaces in Technology earlier in 2018.
"Since we started BambooHR, our goal has been to put people first, both within our product strategy and within our company," said Ben Peterson, CEO and co-founder of BambooHR. "With a focus on overall life balance, we're proud to have an environment where women, millennials and employees across the board can come to work, feel engaged, and make a difference in people's lives. We also believe in growing from good to great and are committed to further improving our workplace in the future."
Known for its workplace initiatives, BambooHR places a strong emphasis on its employees having a genuine work-life balance. In addition to core benefits, the company also provides ways for its employees to better themselves and thrive in their personal lives as well as their professional lives, such as paying them $2,000 to go on vacation (paid paid vacation), paying them $100 to complete a financial education course, and offering a parenting class that's hosted through a local university.
"BambooHR has a great focus on personal growth and leading from where you are within the organization," said Melissa Dameron, product manager at BambooHR. "I have always felt empowered to lead and grow in my role, receiving encouragement, support, and celebration every step of the way."
In addition to being named to four of the Fortune and Great Place to Work lists this year, BambooHR also made the Utah Business Best Companies to Work For list for the fourth year in a row in December 2017 and is one of only four medium-sized companies (125 to 399 employees) that have gone four-for-four in being named a Top Workplace by The Salt Lake Tribune since its program began in 2014.
