Employee experience technology leader believes delivering for customers starts with its own employees
Bellevue, Wash., September 21, 2020 — Today employee experience software company Limeade celebrated its most recent company culture awards. The company was certified by Great Place to Work for the fourth time, named one of Washington’s 2020 Best Workplaces by the Puget Sound Business Journal for the seventh time, and one of Washington’s 2020 Best Companies to Work For by Seattle Business Magazine for the fourth time.
“Culture is a board-level strategy at Limeade and we are extremely intentional about how we define, build and nurture it,” said Dr. Laura Hamill, Chief People Officer and Chief Science Officer at Limeade. “Over the years, high growth, acquisitions and changes in the market have tested the strength of our mission, culture and values – and 2020 has been no exception. We are continuing to learn and grow every year and feel honored to see our hard work recognized again in 2020.”
According to the Great Place to Work survey, 99% of Limeade employees say people care about each other, 98% say employees are made to feel welcome and 96% say management is approachable and easy to talk to.
As an employee experience technology leader, Limeade aims to show every employee that their company cares. It starts internally with a gold standard culture based on core values and fueled by its own science-backed Well-Being, Engagement and Inclusion solutions. Well-being means helping employees feel good and live with purpose — and Limeade systematically delivers organizational support for employees through manager support, executive champions for well-being, employee networks and the tools to care for our people at scale. Limeade also infuses its six core values into every aspect of the overall employee experience.
Limeade is also committed to evolving as an inclusive workplace. Internal initiatives include the Kaleidoscope Council, an employee taskforce focused on making inclusion pervasive across the global Limeade workforce, an Anti-Racism Committee and employee resource groups including Women in the Workplace, African Americans, Developing Professionals and Working Parents & Caregivers. Additionally, Limeade fuels inclusion through Limeade Cares, an employee giving initiative focused on creating giving habits and providing support for employees to care for others. Limeade is also part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the Hispanic Promise, the Paid Leave Pledge and more.
Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation. Certification is a significant achievement – using validated employee feedback gathered with Great Place to Work’s rigorous, data-driven “For All” methodology, certification confirms that employees have a consistently positive experience at Limeade.
The Seattle Business Magazine Best Companies to Work for list is based on the scores of confidential surveys that asked employees to report on 10 categories: corporate culture, executive leadership, responsibility and decision-making, benefits, workplace environment, communication, training and education, hiring and retention, performance standards and rewards and recognition. The highest scores earned by companies across all 10 categories determined who made the list.
The Puget Sound Business Journal surveyed businesses and organizations to find those that have discovered the key to being among the area’s best places to work. Readers were asked to nominate their own or other companies between November 2019 and April 2020. During May 2020, employees of nominated companies answered surveys conducted by Quantum Workplace. Each company was ranked according to its composite score, and the Business Journal chose to honor the top 20 or 25 scoring companies in categories based on company size.
