We are pleased to announce that SADA has once again been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the 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.
“We are incredibly honored to be named to Inc.’s list of Best Workplaces for the third time,” said Orkideh Shahidi, Director of People Operations at SADA. “We are so proud of the exceptional work environment we’ve built for our growing and talented employee base, and we remain dedicated to continuing to build a positive and inclusive culture to ensure our clients are engaging with the cream of the crop.”
SADA maintains an exciting work culture thanks to various events and initiatives organized by SADA’s People Operations Team. Happy hours, charity and community events, the annual kickball game and ping pong tournaments, Tea Cart Tuesdays, and a Wellness Week complete with a yoga break and an on-site chef are just a few of the many exciting activities hosted to show appreciation to employees and to keep them engaged. In addition to a great culture, SADA also offers a wide range of competitive benefits such as 401K matching, paid parental leave, catered lunch daily, unlimited PTO, professional development reimbursement, profit sharing, insurance, disability, flex spending accounts, and other employee assistance programs.
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
