AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AgileCraft is proud to have been ranked #1 in the FORTUNE 50 Best Small Companies to Work For® list, compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute, in our inaugural year of participation.
“I am really proud of the team and culture we have built at AgileCraft. To have 100 percent of our employees say it’s a great workplace is truly unique,“ stated Steve Elliott, Founder and CEO of AgileCraft. “We are honored to earn this recognition as it showcases the challenging and fulfilling jobs, a fun workplace, healthcare coverage, healthy lifestyle incentives, paid sabbaticals, company trips and more. Personally, I see this award as praise for the incredible work ethic and comradery every employee contributes on a daily basis. ”
At AgileCraft, employees are the core of the company. They are what makes AgileCraft great. We give our people the freedom and flexibility to achieve goals each and every day. From speed of delivery to customer focus - our values help to accelerate our company forward and are the main drivers to our explosive growth over the past year.
“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
AgileCraft won this accolade based on employees' anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces:
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
