Comparably releases fourth annual rankings for small and midsize businesses
At Vena, we believe that a positive company culture is key to success, so we are honored to be the recipient of three 2020 Comparably Awards for Small and Midsize Businesses in the following categories: Best Company Culture, Best Companies for Women and Best Companies for Diversity. Comparably, a workplace monitoring site, honors companies with Best Places to Work Awards as rated by their own employees, which makes our recognition in these categories particularly rewarding—it’s a result of feedback from our Venanites.
“We are proud of the culture we are building and thrilled that our team members believe in the work we are doing on behalf of our customers,” said Hunter Madeley, CEO, Vena. “Our success and growth is a direct result of our employees’ ability and willingness to bring their full selves to work. We are grateful for the trust and openness we have across every function and at all levels. We’ll continue to work hard every day to support our employees’ ability to bring all of their talents and experiences to bear here at Vena and are honored to receive this recognition.”
At Vena, we lead a variety of pro-diversity and inclusion initiatives to improve corporate culture. Our employee resource groups, for example, support, promote and advocate for a diverse and inclusive culture within the workplace. Vena’s DIBs (Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging) group aims to create the space and freedom for Vena employees to be themselves and to celebrate their differences. Our N4W (Network for Women) group addresses the interests, challenges and hurdles women+ from different backgrounds experience in the tech community workplace. And our accessibility group, Va11y, works toward actualizing barrier-free access to Vena for everyone, no matter their unique needs or learning style. Vena also actively supports a variety of partner initiatives, including bootcamps for Women In Tech Sales, as well as networking events and hackathons with Black Professionals in Tech Network, Elle Hacks, SheHacks and WomenHack.
The Comparably Awards are derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com during a 12-month period (December 1, 2019 to December 1, 2020). Comparably compiled feedback based on how employees answered several questions across different key metrics, such as career growth, leadership and work-life balance. The data is based from 10 million compiled ratings across 60,000 U.S. companies. Of surveyed companies, Vena ranked 6th in Best Companies for Diversity, 8th in Best Companies for Women and 14th in Best Company Culture.
