Workiva Named One of the 2020 Best Workplaces in Chicago by Great Place to Work for the Third Time

May 21, 2020

Great Place to Work® today released its annual list of the Best Workplaces in Chicago. Workiva, (NYSE:WK) ranked #12 out of 40 Best Large Workplaces. 

To determine the 2020 Best Workplaces in Chicago, Great Place to Work® analyzed confidential survey feedback from over 27,000 employees in the Chicago Metro.

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. 

According to a press release issued by the organization:

The list publication comes amid the COVID-19 crisis, which has disrupted daily life and business operations. The ranking of the Best Workplaces in Chicago is based on data collected prior to the novel coronavirus outbreak. But organizations on the list are leading the way amid the pandemic. They are taking care of their employees, their customers, and the Chicagoland community.

“The Best Workplaces in Chicago have built powerful foundations of trust and human connection to help carry their organizations through stressful and uncertain times,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but to do well for their businesses and for Chicago.”

"At Workiva, we are doing everything we can to protect our employees and their families during this uncertain time," said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. "We place a high priority on employee engagement—through one-on-one virtual meetings, video conferences, frequent livestreams and other digital channels—to keep our teams constantly connected and focused on achieving our business goals and objectives."

This is the third year Workiva has been placed on the list of Best Workplaces in Chicago, and the 13th recognition from Great Place to Work, including two consecutive years on the 100 Best Companies to Work For® list published in FORTUNE magazine.
