Valtix Named an Inc. Magazine Best Workplace for 2022
Employee survey results reflect a best-in-class virtual workplace that enables innovation and team cohesiveness while supporting rapid growth in the fast-moving cloud security market
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 10, 2022 -- Valtix, the industry’s first multi-cloud network security platform as a service, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. The list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility.
Valtix was founded on innovative technology to enable pervasive workload protection, across every major cloud. Today, the platform supports security for workloads running in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), and Oracle Cloud (OCI). Workplace innovation has also always been a top concern for the founding team. And while many companies have had to sustain culture during the pandemic, Valtix has a more unique challenge in that more than 50% of employees were actually hired during the pandemic.
“The pandemic obviously presented a number of challenges for all organizations, but we also took advantage of the opportunity to optimize our culture for remote work,” said Douglas Murray, CEO at Valtix. “We see building a best-in-class virtual workplace as a competitive advantage. We get the best talent, regardless of location and employees get more flexibility, which drives creativity. Additional benefits were aligned to break down organizational silos, drive informal interactions, and alleviate some of the strains that can be challenges in a virtual workplace.”
Among other things, Valtix benefits include weekly company lunches where lunch is delivered to every employee. Monthly mental health days known as Valtix First Friday (#valtixfirstfriday) are provided to enable employees to recharge and pursue activities outside of work.
After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.
“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.
