SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medallia, Inc., the global leader in customer and employee experience, today announced the company was recognized in all four categories of Comparably’s latest Annual Best Places to Work Awards. Medallia was listed among the best companies for diversity, culture, and women, and CEO Leslie Stretch was named among the Best CEOs for companies with more than 500 employees.

“Our mission is to help organizations create a culture that values every person and every experience. But to do that, we know it has to start internally here at Medallia,” Stretch said. “We encourage people to bring their whole selves to work each and every day, and these awards are an incredible testament to the company and culture our people have built.”

Medallia ranked fifth on the overall list for Best Companies for Women, eighth for Best Companies for Diversity, and 10th for Best Company Culture, while Stretch ranked 19th on the list of Best Company CEOs. Rankings were based on anonymous ratings and feedback provided by employees over the past year.

“As employers look to attract new talent and retain their current workforce, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are vital to building a workplace culture where people feel valued and supported,” said Mary Ainsworth, Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer for Medallia. “At Medallia, we don’t just accept our differences, we celebrate them and know they are what make us a stronger company.”

As an example, Medallia sponsors nine officially chartered employee resource groups (ERGs) that help ensure every voice is heard in an effort to truly foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Our communities include [email protected] (Asian Pacific Islanders at Medallia), BAM (Black at Medallia), Latinx, Medley (our cross-functional global community), [email protected], Q-Field (LGBTQ+), [email protected] (U.S. and international Veterans at Medallia), WIT (women in technology), and [email protected] (women at Medallia).
