The search company racked up four accolades across the two platforms, including for its San Francisco Bay Area office.

Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, today announced its placement on best workplace lists by Fortune, in collaboration with global people analytics and consulting firm Great Place to Work®, and tech recruiting platform Built In.

Fortune honored Yext as the #37 best workplace in the Bay Area this year, while Built In named the company to its 2021 Best Places to Work in San Francisco, Companies with the Best Benefits in San Francisco, and Best Large Companies to Work For lists.

The Fortune ranking considered more than 44,000 employee surveys from companies across the region, and evaluated more than 60 elements of the employee experience such as trust in leaders, respect of others, fairness of workplace decisions, and team camaraderie.

Built In determined winners algorithmically by evaluating a company's score in several categories, including compensation, benefits, programs, remote culture, and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

"We're proud to have our workplace and benefits be recognized as being among the best," said Brian "Skip" Schipper, Chief People Officer at Yext. "We work hard to empower our team with the resources and environment to be collaborative and productive — whether in-person or remote — to build products and a platform that enables great customer experiences."

A global company with more than 1,200 employees and 18 offices worldwide, Yext offers a comprehensive benefits program, holistic wellness program, flexible vacation, six Employee Resource Groups, and much more. It has garnered several awards, including being named a best workplace in New York, in technology, and for parents.

"Talented people in the Bay Area want to work for organizations where they can be part of something innovative and impactful," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Organizations like Yext are attracting these candidates because of their great workplace culture where employees feel like their job is meaningful and that they can maximize their human potential."

"These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees," says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer of Built In. "The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We're thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners."
