ALAMEDA, CA — August 27, 2020 — Wind River®, a leader in delivering software for the intelligent edge, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by Bay Area News Group for the seventh consecutive year. Showing leadership during challenging times, Wind River stood out among its peers with its management practices, overall benefits, and company culture that comprises attributes of customer focus, growth mindset, and diversity and inclusion.
“In an increasingly volatile world, organizations that elevate their employees as well as their strategic business priorities rise above the challenges. The Top Workplace designation reflects not only the strong Wind River culture, but also our employees who make Wind River such a great place to work and have a shared passion for helping our customers succeed in this digitally transforming world,” said Wind River President and CEO Kevin Dallas. “While 2020 has brought unique challenges across the globe, our company and employees continue to lean into our innovative, collaborative spirit to redefine how software is built at the intelligent edge and prepare our customers for the AI-first and 5G digital world.”
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
Recently recognized as #1 in edge compute OS platforms, Wind River boasts a proven talent base developing a comprehensive software portfolio for the intelligent edge. Secure, AI-infused, autonomous edge systems will continue to grow in significance as 75% of all data will be processed at the edge as soon as 2025, creating a deluge of data and a need for devices that can handle this scale and complexity. Reinforcing this trend, a Wind River study conducted in April found that the COVID-19 pandemic is prompting tech leaders to further accelerate their focus on digital transformation and increase investment in technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and cloud native.
The annual Top Workplaces award lists the top employers in the Greater Bay Area. The rankings were determined by a voluntary employee survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection.
The 2020 Top Workplaces award is the latest in a series of Wind River industry accolades, which include the Bronze Stevie Award in the New Product – Cloud Infrastructure category, People’s Choice Stevie Award for Favorite New Product, 2020 Communications Solutions Product of the Year, and Leading Lights Finalist standing for Most Innovative 5G Technology.
