Leadership and Workplace
Inc., Great Place to Work®, and Ripplematch recognized Yext for its excellent management, culture, and benefits available for employees — including parents and Gen Z'ers.
Since its founding, Yext has been led by its Founder and CEO Howard Lerman, who has grown the company to 1,300+ employees in offices around the world and turned an initially small team into a publicly traded company. While building an innovative AI search platform, Lerman and his leadership team also worked to cultivate a workplace where employees of all backgrounds could thrive personally and professionally. This included seven Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) dedicated to parents, LGBTQ+ employees, employees of color, and more that remain active today.
"This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable mid-sized companies, both public and private, often founder-led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business," said Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. magazine. "With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities."
"Congratulations to Great Place to Work's Best Workplaces for Parents™," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. "The pandemic presented parents with unique challenges that impacted their work- and home-lives. But these companies paid close attention to the experiences of their working parents and ensured that they didn't have to choose between a thriving career and being present for their children."
