Built In, an online community for tech companies, announced that for the second year in a row, Dataminr has been named to its esteemed 2022 Best Places To Work Awards. Specifically, Dataminr earned a place on Built In’s Best Places to Work in New York City, Best Large Companies to Work For in New York City, and Best Benefits in New York City.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Built In for the second year in a row. In a decade already defined by its volatility, it is an honor for Dataminr to be recognized not just as a great place to work, but a workplace that invests in and truly values its global community.” said Whitney Benner, Dataminr Chief People Officer. “Our talent is our greatest asset. That’s why we’ll continue to prioritize their health and overall wellbeing, as well as their professional growth at Dataminr.”
Dataminr, the leading real-time information discovery platform, offers a wide range of competitive benefits and perks including 100 percent coverage of family health care plans, expansive mental health offerings, and equity compensation. In addition to long-standing benefits, this year Dataminr enhanced global employee benefits with more inclusive offerings such as a comprehensive fertility program that provides equal access to fertility care regardless of gender, sexual orientation, fertility diagnosis, or geographic location. Taking into consideration the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19 in households, they also expanded their mental health and wellbeing benefit programs.
“It is my honor to extend congratulations to the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “This year saw a record number of entrants — and the past two years fundamentally changed what tech professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and companywide programming. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.
Dataminr conducts internal surveying for employee feedback, which has resulted in the investment to forge a more connected company culture with comprehensive diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. These DEI inclusions are woven into the company’s business strategy to ensure that every employee feels accepted, valued and has a sense of belonging. For example, this year, Dataminr launched the new Balance@Dataminr ERG to provide support, reduce stigma, raise awareness—and foster healthy dialogue on issues, challenges, and solutions regarding mental health, neurodiversity, differently-abled, and the chronically ill.
