Kitware was ranked #21 on Fortune magazine’s Best Workplaces in New York™ list

Clifton Park, N.Y. (June 15, 2022) — Kitware has been recognized by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in New York. This is Kitware’s first time being named to this prestigious list, coming in at 21st place. With headquarters in New York, Kitware is honored to be identified as one of the best companies to work for in the state.

The Best Workplaces in New York award is based on employee feedback collected through America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study of over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees. In that survey, an impressive 99% of Kitware’s employees said it is a great place to work compared to 57% at a typical U.S.-based company.

“We are grateful for our employees who have made us a part of this list,” said Lisa Avila, co-founder and CEO of Kitware. “Their passion and desire to make the world a better place inspires us every day. We are committed to maintaining an excellent work environment for all our employees, in every position and at every stage of their career.”

The Best Workplaces in New York list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the winners using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies are considered only if they are already a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization and headquartered in New York.  Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in the U.S. that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a positive work culture that cuts across demographics such as race, gender, age, disability status, and position.

In addition to being included on the Best Workplaces in New York™ in 2022 list, Kitware has been Great Place to Work-Certified™ for two years in a row.
