VANCOUVER, Wash., June 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DiscoverOrg has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. Of the 200 companies that earned the distinction, DiscoverOrg is among the top 50, scoring higher in most categories of Inc.’s employee survey than other software and information technology companies of the same size.

The Inc. list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.

Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace, Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.

"This honor is a reflection of the culture we've worked hard to create at DiscoverOrg," said Henry Schuck, DiscoverOrg CEO. "Our entire team is committed to a singular purpose of accelerating growth-- both for our customers and our employees.  We recognize that every single employee is an integral part of the company's overall success."

While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop including “Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance” and “When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged.” This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.

Within the survey, DiscoverOrg employees said the company’s leadership encourages them to learn, grow, and become better in their roles, while at the same time treating them with dignity and fairness and providing ample and ongoing training. Employees consistently cited a collaborative environment of mutual care and respect, inclusivity, and the feeling of being valued as an employee and a human. The top term that emerged from DiscoverOrg’s “culture cloud” within the survey was “fun.”

The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
