Thousands of companies were considered for Inc.’s Best Workplaces 2019, only 346 made the list – and Stoneridge Software was one of them! Stoneridge Software has received recognition by several regional best place to work programs, but this is the first national contest the company has participated in.
“Stoneridge Software could not be more proud of this distinction! As our team has grown significantly, we have had to find talent in areas outside of our core office locations,” said Chief People Officer Briana Scearcy. “Today we have team members in 23 different states! This award is a reflection of the genuine care we have for our team members across the country. We make a conscious effort to reflect on the information provided from these employee surveys to ensure we continue to create a best place to work at a national level.”
To participate in the program, employees at each nominated company are sent an anonymous confidential survey link with a set of questions asking for feedback about company culture and work experience. Now in its fourth year promoting the Best Workplaces, Inc. magazine surveyed 139,251 employees around the country. According to compiled survey results, some of the top perks of contest winners are paternity leave, unlimited vacation, paid sabbaticals, profit sharing and more.
Why does our team think Stoneridge Software is a best place to work?
Stoneridge Software puts culture first by turning the traditional employee experience upside down, focusing first on employees, as the driver of that performance. We offer a relaxed office with beer and snacks, weekly engagement surveys, quarterly themed potlucks, weekly all-company meetings, and benefits including free health insurance (and dental), unlimited vacation time, $2,500 per year to use toward continued learning and development, and up to 12 weeks of 100 percent paid leave for new moms and dads.
