SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gigamon, the leader in cloud visibility and analytics, is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work®. This prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Gigamon. This year, 89% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 30% higher than the average U.S. company.
Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Gigamon is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
“This certification reflects our commitment to putting employees first in line with our company beliefs,” said Paul Hooper, Chief Executive Officer at Gigamon. “We are committed to fostering an unparalleled employee experience and it is an honor to receive this recognition, especially after navigating the past fifteen-month pandemic. We celebrate and thank our employees for their dedication to Gigamon and to our culture.”
At Gigamon, employees come first. To foster a positive working environment, Gigamon offers initiatives including GigaWomen, a group of women and allies who collaborate to empower all women, and Gigamon Giving, a program that encourages employees to give back by matching both donations and volunteer hours.
Additionally, in response to the pandemic, Gigamon created resources and virtual opportunities to enable their employees to engage in meaningful ways while working remotely. This includes ongoing mental health support where Gigamon implemented regular company-wide ‘down days’ and provided free access to self-development training courses. Each of these programs supports the Gigamon unified community and enables powerful collaboration among diverse minds.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid well, earn a share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
