Oct 18, 2018
SILICON SLOPES — Pluralsight, Inc. (NASDAQ: PS), the enterprise technology learning platform, today announced it has been named one of the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. Pluralsight ranked number 9 on the list, improving from its number 80 ranking in 2017.
“Incredible people create a great workplace. It’s these people that are helping individuals and organizations close skills gaps and drive us towards our mission to democratize technology skills,” said Aaron Skonnard, co-founder and CEO of Pluralsight. “It’s gratifying to know our team is so highly satisfied in their work and connected at a deep level with our values. We are honored to be recognized as a great place to work and excited for what’s in store for the future as we continue to create an experience for our team members that allows everyone to bring their best, authentic self to work.”
This ranking considered more than 112,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses in all sectors of the economy. Pluralsight earned a spot on this list based on team member assessment of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities within Pluralsight.
“Compensation, benefits, and rewards are all important to supporting a fulfilling experience, but what really matters is that our team is deeply connected to our mission, vision and values, and that drives them to do the best work of their life,” said Anita Grantham, chief people officer at Pluralsight. “Central to our values is our belief in supporting a culture of lifelong learners and empowering our team members to take risks and not fear failure. Through this autonomy, our team is not only highly engaged and satisfied in their work but firing on all cylinders to democratize technology skills.”
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
“When it comes to revenue growth and innovation, the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces continue to outperform their peers making these companies more competitive and helping them secure their position in the marketplace,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “What these companies do differently than their peers is that they offer a great workplace for all employees, regardless of role or personal traits."
