MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#insiderriskCode42, the Insider Risk Management leader, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for the second year in a row.

Code42 is a cybersecurity company based in Minneapolis. Employee feedback on the Inc. Best Workplaces survey ranked Code42 highly for employee engagement, development opportunities and collaboration. Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the forefront of Code42’s operation, with strategies for broadening talent pools, curating safe spaces for underrepresented groups and leading conversations important to diversifying its employee base, perspectives and contributions to the community. The company has initiatives that enrich employee communities, invest in employee mind and body wellness, enable technical collaboration and business operations, advance progressive thinking and innovation and promote transparent communications across all levels of the organization.

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.

“Like many businesses, this past year challenged us to rethink how we create a work environment where top talent, regardless of race, gender or age, can thrive and stay connected while working virtually,” said Joe Payne, Code42’s president and CEO. “At Code42, we believe in the relentless pursuit of better and leaving the world a better place. To that end, this past year we expanded our affinity and philanthropy programs and added new DE&I initiatives. These types of programs are helping our employees grow professionally and personally through diversity of thought and a greater understanding and sense of empathy for their peers and larger communities. Being honored for the second year in a row on Inc.’s esteemed list of Best Workplaces, based on our employees’ feedback, validates we are taking the right actions.”

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
