Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of Best Workplaces For 2020

SourceDay is one of the highest-scoring businesses, with standout employee engagement

AUSTIN, Texas — SourceDay has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent feature, the 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. 

SourceDay’s supplier collaboration software brings people, data, and processes together to modernize how companies work with their suppliers to make and ship orders on time. SourceDay’s customers range from medical device, outdoor grill and jet bridge manufacturers to global beauty brands. All use SourceDay to save money and ensure they never miss their customer commitments. To meet these expectations, SourceDay’s culture is centered on hiring the best talent and creating a work environment where employees can thrive. 

Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.

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 is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”

“‘Be the best,’ or #BtheB, is a saying that permeates daily conversation here at SourceDay. This motto is at the heart of our culture and serves as the foundation for everything we do. It drives how each of us does our job each day, how we serve customers, and how we treat one another,” said Tom Kieley, CEO, SourceDay. “Living up to this motto is how we put culture first, and we’re incredibly honored to be recognized by Inc. for the ways that we prioritize our people.”

“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”

While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:

  • 100% provide health insurance.
  • 50% allow employees to bring pets to work.
  • 62% take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.  
  • 20% offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
