April 29, 2016
Hearsay Social has been chosen as one of the
Bay Area’s best places to work for the second year in row, and we are honored for the award! The San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal revealed the “Best Places to Work” list last week, and Hearsay Social was ranked 7th of all companies in the mid-sized company category–up from 8th last year.
Companies on the “Best Places to Work” 2016 list are ranked based solely on employee satisfaction surveys in areas such as employee engagement, work satisfaction, employee recognition, professional development, organizational leadership and management practices.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition; it’s a wonderful validation of our commitment to our team at Hearsay Social,” said Patty Buckley, VP of Operations, People and Culture. For one, “we’ve put in a lot of work in our professional development program, giving people a strong sense of ownership and supporting them in their endeavors to grow at Hearsay. We’ve also launched some great programs that highlight our team’s skills beyond their day-to-day work. For example, Hearsay Talks gives folks the chance to share their expertise on any subject that’s important to them. It connects us as people, not just co-workers, while also showcasing people’s individual talents and interests.”
