SAS recognized as a Top Technology Company to Work for
Trust is key to SAS workplace culture
As the demand for analytic talent grows, companies must remain competitive to these job seekers. Company culture plays a large part in attracting such talent. Already a constant on Fortune’s list of Best Places to Work in the US, SAS has just been recognized as a Best Technology Workplace by the Great Place to Work Institute.
SAS joins Google, Twitter and salesforce.com on the list of the top 20 technology workplaces, issued today by Great Rated, the new survey-based workplace review web site from Great Place to Work.
According to SAS Vice President of Human Resources Jenn Mann, SAS culture directly impacts employee creativity and innovation, which is very important to knowledge workers. “At SAS, our goal is to offer meaningful work for our employees, an empowering management philosophy and a world-class work environment. This allows them to be motivated, creative and innovative in our software development.”
Trust is also a key factor in attracting, and maintaining this talent. China Gorman, Global CEO of Great Place to Work, added, “Each technology firm has its unique company culture that makes it successful. However, one common theme we saw across all of the companies that were surveyed is trust in the workplace.”
The 20 winning companies were selected based on the average scores of nearly 50,000 employees who were surveyed using the Trust Index©, the Great Place to Work employee assessment survey. Great Rated!™ People’s Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Technology marks the first published list since the official launch of Great Rated!™, the site that gives job seekers the inside scoop on companies and their cultures.
