Justworks, the fastest growing HR technology company, was recognized today as one of Fortune Magazine's Best Small & Medium Workplaces in 2018. In collaboration with Fortune, Great Place to Work,® a research and consulting firm, analyzed anonymous survey feedback from nearly 112,000 U.S. employees across 50 distinct elements of their experience on the job. Rankings are based on employees' feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
Surveyed responses covered the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Justworks' values-based culture secured the 53rd spot on the 2018 list, making this the company's third appearance in just as many years.
"Earning a spot on this list for three years running is no small achievement, especially for a six-year-old company," said Kirsten Behncke Colyer, Vice President of People & Talent at Justworks. "Ranking in 2018 feels particularly important because of our rapid growth. Even as we've expanded offices, hired more than 200 new people, and rolled out new processes at scale, the fact that 96% of our team gave us top marks as part of the survey is a testament to our values of camaraderie, openness, grit, integrity, and simplicity grounding everything we do — starting with how we take care of our people. By fostering a transparent, open, and motivated environment for employees at all levels and across teams, we've built a culture that resonates with the modern workforce. Being recognized again as one of Fortune's Best Small & Medium Workplaces is a real validation of our approach."
This year, Justworks was recertified for the fourth time as a Great Place to Work (2018-2019), named a Best Workplace in Technology, selected as one of Mogul's Top Workplaces for Millennial Women, and ranked #2 on the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For in 2018 list. Last year, Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE ranked Justworks in 2017 as a Small & Medium Workplace, a Best Workplace in New York, and a Best Workplace in Technology.
"When it comes to revenue growth and innovation, the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces continue to outperform their peers making these companies more competitive and helping them secure their position in the marketplace," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "What these companies do differently than their peers is that they offer a great workplace for all employees, regardless of role or personal traits."

For the boss you loved, the coworker you hated, and everyone in between
Two things are inevitable when someone leaves your team at work: there will be an abundance of sweet treats (I'm partial to those giant cookie cakes from the mall) and there will be a card passed around for everyone to scrawl the professional version of sweet nothings in. Depending on the "importance" of the person, you may get the bonus activities of farewell gifts and/or an all-team champagne toast.
If you are a New York based tech professional and you'd like to attend this event, please email your name and LinkedIn URL to email@example.com.
Whether you are a software engineer, fitness enthusiast or both, you won't want to miss PowerToFly's evening of product demos and networking with the women tech leaders and allies at Peloton.
Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. In their words, "We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home."
This event is your chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make their revolutionary products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible. We'll be devoting a large portion of the event to taking your questions and I know the Peloton team wants to hear from you!
The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.

How This Sales Coach Found Success—And A Career Path—at the Intersection of Tech, Construction, & Sales
A few months ago, Lily Zintak found herself at a crossroads.
She'd been working as a Sales Development Representative in construction management software company Procore Technologies' Austin, Texas office for the better part of 18 months. She'd watched the office grow from less than 200 people to more than 400—and even cut the ribbon when they opened a new floor of offices. She'd made 50-plus sales calls a day, honed an approach to prospecting and connecting with clients that worked for her, and found success. It was at this point in her career, where she had to make a tough decision.
