DENVER, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SendGrid, the leading delivery platform for customer communication that drives engagement and growth, is proud to announce research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune have named SendGrid one of the Bay Area's best workplaces. SendGrid is headquartered in Denver, Colorado but has a strong presence in the Bay Area with nearly 30 employees and several open positions available.
"SendGrid's 4H culture of being happy, humble, hungry and honest has undoubtedly been a key driver in our success in Redwood City and our continued growth," said Pattie Money, Chief People Operations Officer at SendGrid. "I'm inspired every day by the level of commitment from each employee to uphold our values across our offices and we're honored to be recognized as a Great Place to Work in the Bay Area."
In January 2017, SendGrid was recognized as a Great Place to Work with 98 percent of employees responding that their workplace is great. SendGrid came in number twelve on the list of small and medium employers. The rankings considered surveys from more than 220,000 co-workers who assessed their organizations' fairness, management, camaraderie and other factors crucial to a high-performance workplace.
At the top quartile of surveyed organizations including SendGrid, employees were more likely than those at peer companies to say:
- Managers involve people in decisions
- Promotions go to those who best deserve them
- They receive a fair share of their organizations' profits
