This is the fourth year in a row WP Engine has been named to the prestigious list, ranking 27th on the list of 50 companies headquartered in Texas.
The Best Workplaces in Texas award is based on employee feedback collected through America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study of more than 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees.
In that survey, 91% of WP Engine’s employees identified the company as a great place to work. This number is higher than the average U.S. company.
“One of the things that make WP Engine such a special place is the emphasis we put on our core values and the direct link we see between those values and our workplace culture,” said WP Engine Chief People Officer Annette Alexander.
“Our culture is our core values in action, and this external recognition is a validation of our employees’ commitment to those values, which make WP Engine a great place to work for everyone, every single day.”
The Best Workplaces in Texas list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified organization headquartered in Texas.
Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, is the only company culture award in the U.S. that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“As employee demands and expectations have dramatically changed over the past year, these companies have risen to the occasion—and it’s not been easy,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president of global recognition, research & strategic partnerships at Great Place to Work.
“Their hard work and dedication to listen to and care for the well-being of every employee, and support them in a way that’s meaningful to all, is the standard all organizations will be held to.”
WP Engine has been recognized by Great Place to Work numerous times since 2017, and that recognition now spans all of the company’s global locations, from the UK and Ireland to Australia, Poland, and beyond!
Most recently, WP Engine Ireland was named a Best Workplace in Tech (for the second year in a row) and WP Engine Poland was recognized as both a Great Place to Work-certified organization, as well as a Great Place to Work for Millenials.
