The Boston Globe Names Wasabi Technologies a Top Place to Work for 2022
BOSTON — December 1, 2022 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 15th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2022 issue publishes online at Globe.com/TopPlaces on the night of Wednesday, November 30 and in Globe Magazine on Sunday, December 4.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more. Wasabi placed in the top 20, ranking 18th in the medium category.
With headquarters in Boston, Wasabi was founded in 2017 by Carbonite founders David Friend and Jeff Flowers with a singular focus: to store the world’s data. The newly-minted unicorn now has more than 250 global employees as the demand for cloud storage thrives despite the world’s current economic challenges. Employees benefit from the creative and collaborative environment Wasabi has built even as a fully remote company, with unparalleled work-life flexibility, unlimited PTO, corporate social responsibility initiatives, and top notch health and financial benefits.
“Wasabi is as successful as we are because of our employees. The culture we have established allows our team to feel ownership of their work and to prioritize their personal lives. The results speak for themselves,” said David Friend, CEO, Wasabi Technologies. “To be once again named a Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe speaks to the level of enthusiasm, ingenuity, and pride Wasabi employees bring to the company every single day.”
“The pandemic has changed the way we work, and the employers who topped the list understand it goes far beyond the remote vs. in-office debate,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “Workers want flexibility, of course, but they also want more support, more humanity, and a greater sense of purpose.”
The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 90,000 individuals at 381 Massachusetts organizations, the most companies ever surveyed in the state. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.
