DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored SendGrid, Inc. (NYSE:SEND), a leading digital communication platform that drives engagement and growth, as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Millennials for the second consecutive year. The ranking considered input from more than 434,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies.
Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experiences on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
“Millennials want to work for a company that is committed to creating an environment where people feel valued and can make an impact,” said Pattie Money, chief people officer at SendGrid. “At SendGrid, we follow a servant leadership model that focuses on managers serving the people in the organization in ways that enable them to achieve their full potential. When we think about organizational structure, we think of the leader being at the bottom of the organizational chart, rather than the top. It’s a visual that keeps us grounded in our servant leadership model. This type of thinking has proven to be especially attractive to this demographic and has helped our business remain strong while attracting great talent at every age.”
“Great Place to Work is proud of these Best Workplaces that give their Millennial employees the tools they need to succeed,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like SendGrid set the bar for other workplaces seeking to retain and develop the next generation of leaders, and prove that giving Millennials jobs with purpose and meaning drives them to give their best at work, benefiting the company as a whole.”
SendGrid offers a wide range of personal and professional benefits from in-house professional growth initiatives, tuition reimbursement, flexible work schedules and much more, to ensure its employees maximize their productivity and achieve a harmonious work-life balance that leads to good health and well-being. These benefits along with semi-annual retreats, team-bonding activities and collaborative work environments provide an appealing workplace for Millennials today.

Since then, it has been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in the Bay Area in April 2017, one of the Best Workplaces for Millennials in June 2017, one of the Best Workplaces in Southern California in October 2017, one of the Best Medium Workplaces in October 2017 and one of the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in Technology in January 2018.
