Everything that tech leaders have ever known about company culture has been put to the test throughout the start of 2020.

 

With so much uncertainty right now, the best tech companies are redefining what it means to be a top workplace and showing that they’re investing in their No. 1 asset: their people.

“Company culture is the #1 reason tech professionals choose their employer”

People are looking to work for a company that aligns best with their values, recognizes their achievements, but most importantly, they want to work with people they enjoy.
