Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Answers company, today announced that it has been named one of the Best Workplaces in New York™ in 2022 by Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine, ranking #15 for large-sized businesses.
This year's Best Workplaces in New York award is based on employee feedback collected through America's largest ongoing annual workforce study of over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees. In that survey, 89% of Yext's employees said Yext is a great place to work. This number is 32% higher than the average U.S. company.
"We're incredibly proud that our efforts to create an inclusive, collaborative, and fun work environment continues to be recognized," said Brian "Skip" Schipper, Chief People Officer at Yext. "We're grateful to have a team of smart, capable employees who care about one another's success."
The Best Workplaces in New York list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization and headquartered in the New York metropolitan statistical area.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
"As employee demands and expectations have dramatically changed over the past year, these companies have risen to the occasion — and it's not been easy," said Kim Peters, EVP of Global Recognition, Research & Strategic Partnerships at Great Place to Work. "Their hard work and dedication to listen to and care for the well-being of every employee, and support them in a way that's meaningful to all, is the standard all organizations will be held to."
In 2021, Yext also ranked as a Best Workplace in the Bay Area™ and a Best Workplace for Parents™. Learn more about Yext and explore open positions here.
