Workiva One of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For

Below is an article originally written by Marty Vanderploeg at PowerToFly Partner Workiva, and published on March 05, 2020. Go to Workiva's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Workiva is honored to be recognized for the second time by FORTUNE® magazine as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For®. We are grateful to be listed alongside some of the most successful and forward-thinking companies—many of whom are our customers—in this prestigious group.

Our mission at Workiva—to build trust in the global economy—is supported by our company values: customer success, innovation, trust, integrity, inclusion, collaboration, and accountability. To understand why Workiva is such a special place, simply take a closer look at what our values mean to us.

Customer success: We are successful because we put our employees first, listen to their voices, and respond to their needs. This extra level of care gets passed on to our customers every day, which leads to some of the highest customer satisfaction scores in any industry.

Innovation: Keeping our customers on the cutting edge of technology requires talented and dedicated employees, who are given the resources and freedom they need—backed by a culture of collaboration and diverse thought—to keep breaking new ground.

Trust: Our Workiva platform helps our customers all over the world sleep better at night, knowing that their data is connected in one place and their business decisions are based on reports that are secure, transparent, and accurate. We provide thousands of companies and government agencies with the tools they need to collaborate and connect their data in a secure, cloud-based environment. We also rely on each other. Employees can use paid time-off to help each other in times of need or volunteer in their communities.

Integrity: We communicate honestly and openly with our employees and our customers. This year we will eliminate single-use plastics in all our offices because it's the right thing to do. We only have one home, and we want to take care of it.

Inclusion: We foster a work environment that values all backgrounds, beliefs, and interests, and we recognize this diversity as an important part of our innovation and success. Our culture is so strong that it has its own tagline: "My Voice. My Company." It reflects how our employees are empowered to speak openly through frequent town halls, live Q&As with executives, employee surveys, and digital-chat channels.

Collaboration: We encourage people to truly support each other at work, through peer recognition, employee resource groups, and culture events. We are constantly connecting with each other through internal communication channels.

Accountability: Workiva is a digital workplace with flexible work hours because sometimes real life happens between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Our cloud-based platform makes it possible for our employees to seamlessly work with team members, regardless of location. Our commitment to communication—through one-on-one meetings, video conferences, and digital chatrooms—keeps Workiva teams connected and focused on achieving business goals and objectives.

We made FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies to Work For list because our values guide us in everything we do. They shape how we treat one another, how we serve our customers, and how we support the communities where we live and work.

Our mission gives us purpose, our company values guide everything we do, and our culture connects us in a workplace where we all belong.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

If you told Paula Manchester that you weren't good at math, she wouldn't believe you.

"That's a global indictment," she says. "'I'm not good at math' implies that you don't have the ability to nurture that muscle. And then I'd ask what kind of math? There's a lot to math."

When Anuja Chaven turns on a fan in her house in Jersey City, she can't help but think about how every piece of it works.

"There are an extensive amount of things that have to go perfectly at the same time," says the former engineer (and current product manager at live event ticketing platform SeatGeek).
