SYRACUSE, N.Y. (May 5, 2020) – Terakeet, a global leader in enterprise search engine optimization technologies, today announced it has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2020, the publication’s fifth annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. A prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.

“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”

Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then they ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work. Terakeet is proud to have exceeded this with 98.9% of their employees responding that they are engaged by their work, 83.6% of respondents stating they are “highly engaged.”

The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”

"This award makes our team very proud, particularly in the face of this global pandemic when nearly every workforce at every company faces so much uncertainty. We have said for a long time that our number one asset at Terakeet is our people and we have invested heavily in recruiting, hiring, and training people who are 'better than the best'.  To find out that our employees feel this way about our workplace is both humbling and energizing," said MacLaren (Mac) Cummings, CEO and co-founder of Terakeet.

All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:

  • 100 percent provide health insurance.
  • 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
  • 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge. 
  • 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
