Wind River Named A Bay Area Top Workplace for 8th Consecutive Year

ALAMEDA, CA — August 23, 2021 — Wind River®, a global leader in delivering software for intelligent systems, has earned a Bay Area Top Workplaces 2021 honor for the eighth year in a row. Winners were determined based on employee engagement survey results, which uniquely measure 15 workplace culture drivers that are critical to an organization’s success. This announcement follows its Top Workplaces USA award earlier this year.

“Maintaining a highly engaged workforce during the pandemic has both challenged us and allowed us to grow in new ways, and this latest workplace honor underscores the strength of our ‘One Wind River’ culture,” said Wind River President and CEO Kevin Dallas. ““I’m extremely proud of our team for making our cultural attributes of customer focus, growth mindset and diversity and inclusion a truly lived experience at Wind River. Our company has now become a destination for talent that want to bring their true self to the hybrid office and realize the digital future of the planet.”

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces drew on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”  

“We are honored to once again be recognized as a top workplace, especially because it reflects our employees’ own feedback,” said Wind River Chief People Office Terese Lam. “Wind River has a passion for investing in our employees – offering an inclusive, collaborative environment that fosters a sense of belonging and encourages growth. We are committed to recruiting the best talent, which enables us to continually innovate for our customers and the future.”

Wind River is playing a leadership role in helping customers on their journey towards an intelligent systems future. For 40 years, the company has been an industry innovator, playing key roles on the Mars rovers, the world’s first successful 5G data session, and in building one of the largest Open RAN networks in the world. Earlier this year, the company introduced Wind River Studio, the industry’s first cloud-native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems from devices to cloud.

The Top Workplaces honor is awarded by Energage LLC, a purpose-driven organization that helps organizations turn employee feedback into useful business intelligence. Top Workplaces awards are based solely on employee feedback on culture markers such as alignment, execution and connection.

The Bay Area Top Workplaces 2021 recognition is the latest in a series of Wind River industry accolades, which include being a 2021 Best Places to Work, 2021 American Business Awards® Bronze Stevie® Winner, a TMC Communications Solutions Product of the Year and a top Public IoT AceTM MVP Ranked Company.
