We’re thrilled to share that the Austin Business Journal recently named Bloomfire one of their 2021 Best Places to Work in Central Texas. This is the fifth time we’ve been recognized in the annual awards program (which was formerly the Best Places to Work in Austin).
The Austin Business Journal selected their Best Places to Work honorees by soliciting nominations and anonymously surveying the employees of all nominated companies. Employees were asked to grade their employers across six key areas, including trust in leadership, collaboration, and communication.
“We’re honored to be named one of the Best Places to Work in Central Texas for the fifth time in the last seven years. This award is especially important because it’s based on the feedback of our team,” said Mark Hammer, our CEO. “Our amazing team worked hard over the past year to maintain and grow our company culture, and we had the best financial year in company history. Our team’s success is a testament to the importance of culture on company growth.”
Like many companies, Bloomfire has been operating remotely since March 2020 and will be implementing a hybrid work approach, in which employees can choose to work from home or the office on a flexible schedule, going forward. Feedback from many Bloomfire employees highlights the value of a strong company culture in a year of remote work.
“Bloomfire’s pandemic response emphasized making everyone feel safe and valued with a swift move to remote work, policies that put employees and their families first, plenty of opportunities to maintain social bonds remotely, and constant reminders to take care of ourselves,” said Bheeshmar Redheendran, Principal Implementation Engineer at Bloomfire. “I am so grateful to work at a place that genuinely takes such good care of its people. It’s no wonder that we feel it’s the best place to work!”
Bloomfire has previously been on the Best Places to Work list in 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019. Our company has grown a lot in that time, and we look forward to maintaining and strengthening our company culture as we continue to grow!
