SAS named a Best Workplace in Technology
Analytics leader’s exemplary workplace culture appeals to choosy tech workers
A shortage of analytic talent has heightened competition to attract and retain employees within the technology industry. As a workplace culture pioneer, SAS knows a creative and innovative environment paired with work/life balance can be a big advantage. As evident with the latest recognition by Great Place to Work® and Fortune as one of the 10 Best Large Workplaces in Technology, SAS’ company culture continues to inspire technology employees and motivate other companies to do the same.
SAS joins Google, Twitter and Workday on the list, which ranks companies based on employees’ assessments of their experiences.
SAS’ conviction that culture directly affects employee creativity feeds a growth strategy that helps knowledge workers thrive. “At SAS, our people make the difference,” said SAS Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Jenn Mann. “They’re the ones talking to customers, solving problems and writing software code. When they feel nurtured and supported, it helps them stay motivated and innovative.”
According to Great Place to Work, the foundation of a superior workplace culture is trust. “These companies are great because they invest in trust. They stand on trust. They use trust as a competitive differentiator,” said Chinwe Onyeagoro, business strategy expert and Executive Vice President of US Consulting at Great Place to Work.
A constant on Fortune’s list of Best Companies to Work For in the US, SAS believes that encouraging employee creativity drives the innovation that helps SAS and its customers succeed. Recognized regularly as a Best Place to Work in IT by Computerworld, SAS has been named a best workplace for millennials and recent graduates, as well as working parents, women and single fathers. SAS not only invests in employee career development, but also health and well-being through an array of services, programs and benefits.
