Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, has been named #12 on Fortune’s 2020 list of Best Workplaces in New York. This is the fourth time that Yext, founded in New York City in 2006, has made the distinguished list.
To determine the ranking, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm Great Place to Work® to analyze confidential survey feedback about perceptions of trust, employees’ ability to reach their full potential, and other work quality dimensions from approximately 45,000 employees from different companies in the New York tri-state area.
“We’re honored to be named a top workplace in the city where we planted our roots,” said Brian “Skip” Schipper, Chief People Officer at Yext. “While Yext has grown considerably, we have stayed committed to a workspace that inspires creativity and collaboration.”
A global company with 18 offices worldwide, Yext recently moved from its New York City headquarters in the historic Metropolitan Life Insurance Clocktower. The company hopes to begin occupancy in The Yext Building, a nine-story, newly constructed building in Chelsea’s Meatpacking district near tech peers like Google and Apple, before the end of the year.
Until then, as Yexters work remotely to wait out the COVID-19 pandemic, Yext continues to focus on fostering the best possible virtual workplace for its more than 1,200 employees around the globe.
Yext has also been named a Best Workplace in Technology, Best Medium Workplace, Best Workplace for Parents, and more by Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
