Awarded on the heels of Series B funding, continued growth, and staff expansion
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vendr, the world’s first SaaS buying platform, today announced that it has been named a Certified™ Great Place to Work® for the first time this year. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation. The prestigious award is based entirely on current employee experiences working at the organization, with 88% of Vendr employees deeming the business a great place to work – 31 points higher than the average U.S. company.
The news comes on the heels of the company’s recent $150MM Series B––which brought the company into Unicorn status and continues to enable Vendr to hire extraordinary people across the U.S.––and its acquisition of SaaS management company, Blissfully, earlier this year.
“As Vendr gears up for another year of success in the SaaS industry––made possible by the growth of our incredible team––we’re pleased to officially be Great Place to Work-Certified™,” said Vendr CEO and co-founder, Ryan Neu. “We consider employee wellbeing and overall job satisfaction to be our top priority and owe our continued success to our workforce. As we head into 2023 with the goal of further expanding our team, Vendr pledges to be an inclusive work environment that celebrates every employee, because we simply could not achieve this level of success without them.”
Vendr prides itself in empowering employees to work from anywhere in the U.S. with the option of working in-person in either Boston, Mass. or Charleston, South Carolina office location. Vendr continuously places great importance on mental health and understands that the wellbeing of the team is critical to the organization’s success. As such, Vendr offers an annual company-wide week-long shutdown every summer, 12 paid company holidays, a wellness/gym reimbursement, paid Calm app subscription, virtual “Wellness Wednesday Yoga” sessions, and more.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Vendr is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
