EVANSTON, Ill., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Katalyst Technologies is one of the 2016 Best Workplaces for Asian Americans, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
Katalyst Technologies ranked first on the list, which is based on employees' assessments of workplace fairness, opportunities for training, and access to senior leadership, among other factors.
"We have always considered Katalyst to be an open environment where employees' nationalities can be celebrated," said Rahul Shah, founder and CEO of Katalyst Technologies. "In addition to our quarterly potluck lunches where employees bring food that's common to their home country, we also celebrate Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, with all of our employees."
"We congratulate this year's winners for showing that diverse workplaces are good for ALL employees," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Bottom line?

About The Best Workplaces for Asian Americans
Published together with our partner, Fortune, The Best Workplaces for Diversity ranking is based upon feedback from 448,456 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies who completed our Trust Index© Employee Survey. Employees from all backgrounds answered 58 questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, considering everything from how comfortable they are being themselves, to the degree of favoritism or insider politics they observe in the workplace, the fairness of promotions, the feeling of honest connection with co-workers, their access to senior leadership, and who receives information and professional development and who doesn't.
To determine the winners, Great Place to Work analyzed how positively women, minorities and LGBTQ employees reported experiencing their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where these employees tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues. Rankings take into account how favorably women, minorities and LGBTQ employees experience their workplace relative to their male, Caucasian and heterosexual colleagues' experiences. The list also considered the degree of representation women and minorities enjoy within the workforce as a whole, as well as in management and executive roles. Organizations needed to have at least 50 employees to be considered and were compared to peers of similar size.
