All Pinger employees surveyed gave high ratings to Pinger’s culture, traditions and collaborative work environment

SAN JOSE, Calif., August 11, 2022— Pinger, the company behind the popular TextFreeSideline and Sideline PRO communications apps, has been rated 9th in U.S. as the Best Small Workplace in the country by Great Place to Work. The award recognizes the best-of-the-best small companies.

The award was based on the Great Places to Work-Certified survey, which enables employees to share quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization’s culture, including its spirit of trust, respect, credibility, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

In determining the national awards, Great Places to Work analyzed survey responses from more than 30,000 employees across the country. Participation in the survey was voluntary and confidential. A full 100 percent of Pinger employees who answered the survey rated the company as a “great place to work.” This is more than 40 percentage points higher than the average U.S. company. Pinger earned an average rating of 97% across all survey questions.

“We are grateful to our dedicated employees who make Pinger a great place to do meaningful work,” said Greg Woock, CEO of Pinger. “Since day one of the company we have focused on our culture and environment. We care about each other and about our customers, and it shows.”

The Great Places to Work Certification is the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company’s culture. The certification is the global benchmark for identifying and recognizing outstanding employee experience.

This is the third such recognition Pinger has received in less than a year. Great Places to Work named the company one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area last fall. And Fortune Magazine named Pinger one of the 100 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area this year.

In addition to its collaborative, supportive culture, Pinger provides competitive salaries and a host of benefits such as unlimited time off, work-from-home flexibility and 100% coverage of health insurance premiums.
