KnowBe4 ranks number three overall; recognized for outstanding work environment and corporate culture
KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has earned a 2021 Top Workplaces USA award, issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces. This is the inaugural year for Top Workplaces USA, built on the program’s 14-year history surveying more than 20 million employees across 54 markets for the regional Top Workplaces awards.
KnowBe4 placed number one for top workplaces in technology and top workplaces for communication. It also placed number three for top workplaces for top leaders and clued-in leaders. KnowBe4 was recognized with an additional award for top workplaces for innovation.
Top Workplaces USA offers national recognition for large organizations, those with more than 150 employees, and those that may have operations in multiple markets. Several thousand organizations from across the country were invited, and more than 1,100 participated in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage. Results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 Culture Drivers that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
“KnowBe4 is a great place to work because fun is part of our core values,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Our employees love to work here for several reasons, mainly because they are engaged on a daily basis and valued as stakeholders of our organization. From company outings to in-house celebrations, we are always looking for ways to encourage a positive, thriving working environment and we have a team dedicated to making this vision a reality. To be ranked as a top workplace on a national best workplaces list speaks volumes and will help us continue to recruit top talent.”
