San Diego Union-Tribune Names Wrike a Top Workplace for 2019

November 18, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 18, 2019--

Wrike, the most versatile collaborative work management platform, has been recognized as a Top Workplace by the San Diego Union-Tribune. The award comes less than a year after Wrike expanded its San Diego office to accommodate the rapid growth of this regional staff, which has since doubled in head count. Wrike San Diego’s sales and customer success teams have been instrumental to the company’s revenue growth, helping to land the company on the Deloitte Fast 500 list of the fastest growing companies in North America for the fifth consecutive year.

“We chose San Diego as part of our first expansion in 2016 because we knew its talent pool of enthusiastic professionals would be a vital resource for Wrike and the city has definitely delivered,” said Wrike CEO and Founder Andrew Filev. “We knew tapping into this pool would require building a great workplace comprised of diverse, purpose-driven individuals committed to achieving our business goals as well as their own professional development. This award is a testament to those efforts and helps position us as a top destination for talent and even greater growth in 2020!”

In addition to being named as a Top Workplace by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Wrike has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by the San Diego Business Journal, Silicon Valley Business Journal, and as a Top Workplace by the Bay Area News Group for five consecutive years. The company now has more than 1,000 employees worldwide in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

Wrike Vice President of Human Resources Megan Barbier attributes the organization’s award-winning culture to its core values: collaborate, execute, and grow. “We believe the strength and spirit of our staff is rooted in our support of each other’s efforts, a laser-focus on helping our customers succeed, and an openness to finding new avenues for learning and growth,” said Barbier. “We’re honored to be recognized for this culture that is at the heart of all our success.”

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
