At Outreach, employees' happiness and sense of belonging are a priority. Communications from our CEO cover topics like burnout and loneliness, and frequent online hangouts build a network of mutual support among a geographically dispersed team. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is confirmed by our majority-female leadership in a male-dominated industry, classes on unconscious bias, and a hiring process that does not ask candidates about visa requirements.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

There's a huge diversity and inclusion culture here. We don't just talk the talk, but we walk the walk. Having a female CEO in tech is not only rare, but she sets a great example of what great heights an inclusive company can reach. Our CEO believes that diversity of all kinds makes the team stronger and provides a competitive advantage. PagerDuty frequently hires minority groups into visible leadership roles and offers numerous channels for frank discussions about what the team is and is not doing well when it comes to inclusiveness.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We believe that Palmisano is a "Best Place to Work" because our team enjoys coming to work. Perks are nice, but the people really make the work place amazing. We believe work should be an enjoyable experience, we spend too much time at the office to have it any other way. Challenges are easier to navigate when you have a great team. Company social events are regularly well attended, and teams request to increase the events. To an outsider, looking in on a Palmisano employee event, you would think it was a party with close friends, not a work function.
