by Mike O’Donnell, Chief Talent Officer at Khoros
It’s always an exciting time to be a Khorosian. We’re continually learning, growing, and ideating new ways for brands to better connect with their customers. However, there’s never been a more exciting time than right now.
Recently, Built In — an online community for startups and tech companies — released their list of the Best Places to Work1 in 2020, and we, Khoros, were recognized as the #1 overall Best Place to Work in Austin. Out of the thousands of tech companies in Austin, we are number one!
As thrilled as we are to get the external recognition, it really just validated what we’ve been feeling internally. We’ve worked really hard in the last year to get the right people on our team, find the right space to support them, and create a culture that makes us uniquely Khoros — and it’s paying off. There is so much great energy in the halls of our new Austin campus and in our other offices throughout the world (Portland, San Francisco, New York, London, Bangalore, Paris, Sydney, Hamburg)!
People are a company’s greatest asset, and at Khoros, it’s no different. We have a deeply talented team with a diversity of ideas and experience, and to leverage that strength, we built into our company’s DNA the core value that “we win and grow as one team.”
And while we take our work seriously, we value the whole person. Did I mention we were also named the #3 company with the Best Perks and Benefits in Austin? From catered lunches to weekly fitness classes to quarterly local volunteer opportunities, we offer multiple ways for our people to engage with each other and our communities in different ways. Finally, we empower individual development with investments in training, mentoring, and career development for our teams.
As we forge forward into 2020, we are going to continue to make Khoros a phenomenal place to work. With a solid foundation beneath our feet, we’ll continue to enhance our commitment to our employees and foster our inclusive workplace and wonderful culture, to strengthen our company and propel us to the next level.
So, with that said, thank you to my fellow Khorosians for everything you do, and here’s to a bright future ahead!
