EventBooking named as one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2020
EventBooking, a venue management software company, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s “Best Workplaces for 2020”, which singled out 395 winning companies from more than 3,000 submissions. This is the second consecutive year EventBooking has received this recognition.
EventBooking will be listed among the final “Best Workplaces” in the May / June 2020 issue of Inc. magazine. That list is also currently showcased as the main feature on the Inc.com homepage. The results come from a comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
Each nominated company took part in an anonymous employee survey on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analysed and audited the data, then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.
According to survey data, 96% of EventBooking employees consider themselves to be “highly engaged” with the company, and when prompted to describe the work environment in one word, the top adjective submitted was “collaborative.” Employees were also invited to provide optional comments, which were also anonymous.
In one response, an employee shared:
By leaps and bounds, this is the best place I’ve ever worked. We have a true “no blame” culture that seeks to figure out how to avoid issues in the future rather than figuring out who gets thrown under the bus. People care about one another and are willing to go out of their way to help. These attributes come from the top down.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritise 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.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. saw distinct themes:
100 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
Inc. magazine editor-in-chief, Scott Omelianuk, said:
Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership. 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.
Founder and CEO of EventBooking, John Platillero, also commented:
Now more than ever, what defines a workplace is far beyond the brick and mortar facility. It is and has always been about the people. I am so proud of and grateful for our team and how everyone has adapted so quickly in recent times. They’ve barely skipped a beat to continue to serve our clients with the same care we also strive to show each other at EventBooking.
