Five9 Receives a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2022
The recognition follows two additional honors the cloud contact center provider received at the end of 2021: Ranking #1 on Battery Ventures’ Highest-Rated Public Cloud-Computing Companies to Work for List and becoming certified as a Great Place to Work - USA.
SAN RAMON, Calif. – January 12, 2022 - Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of the intelligent cloud contact center, today announced that it has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2022.
Now in its 14th year, The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review on Glassdoor, the worldwide leader in insights about jobs and companies. When sharing a review, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, along with key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, diversity and inclusion, and work/life balance.
Five9’s Glassdoor reviews also earned it the #1 spot on Battery Ventures 2021 Highest-Rated Public Cloud-Computing Companies to Work for List. Battery Ventures is a global investment firm that backs cloud companies, and it uses data from Glassdoor to compile its annual list of public and private cloud companies where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at work, where inclusive cultures and growth opportunities are present and encouraged, and where employees feel supported by dedicated leadership teams.
These factors are increasingly important as organizations grapple with the “Great Resignation,” which saw 4.5 million US workers quit their jobs in November alone.
“Five9 is proud to be recognized for our outstanding culture, particularly at a time when so many workers are reevaluating their needs and expectations for the workplace,” said Genefa Murphy, CMO, Five9. “Being an advocate for customer experience, also means being an advocate for employee experience, and we are committed to learning, empowering, advocating, allying and supporting each other within our own walls and communities. Five9 embraces authenticity and trust and leads with transparency, empowering our employees to have a voice that's heard.”
