Featured in Inc. magazine’s 2019 issue, Praetorian is one of the highest-scoring businesses for trust in leadership, team dynamics, and personal engagement categories.
AUSTIN, Texas, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Praetorian, a leading provider of enterprise cybersecurity solutions, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019. The award follows numerous honors from Inc. magazine, which last year named Praetorian for the fifth consecutive year on its 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
Hitting newsstands May 28 in the June 2019 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the Best Workplaces list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.
“At Praetorian, we are fiercely protective of the camaraderie and culture that we believe has led to our success,” says Praetorian founder and CEO Nathan Sportsman. “We believe Praetorian’s culture is one of our competitive advantages, and our core values are our north star for decision making.”
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then it ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine Editor in Chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
