Wind River Earns 2018 'Best Places to Work' Recognition
Wind River was once again named one of the Bay Area’s ‘Best Places to Work’ by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal based on the company’s corporate philosophy, work culture, management practices and overall benefits. Rankings were unveiled at a San Francisco gala earlier this week, where Wind River received the workplace award in the large company category and was also ranked #1 for Wellness.
“It is an honor to earn the Best Places to Work designation as it celebrates our company culture, which values and empowers our employees,” said Jim Douglas, president of Wind River. “This recognition is especially meaningful given it is based on feedback coming directly from our employees, whose dedication, spirit of collaboration and commitment to ensuring our customers’ success are what contribute to making Wind River such a great place to work.”
The annual Best Places to Work awards lists the top employers in the Greater Bay Area, and winners are known for recruiting and retaining the best talent. The rankings were determined by a voluntary employee survey, which assessed values such as trust in leadership, collaborative culture, personal engagement and satisfaction of individual needs through great benefits and perks. Results were tabulated by research firm Quantum Workplace.
