SendGrid, Inc. (NYSE: SEND), a leading digital communication platform that drives engagement and growth, was recently named one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Orange County. The county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county’s economy, its workforce and businesses.
“SendGrid’s Orange County presence has continued to grow at a steady pace as we continue to invest in our Irvine office located at the heart of the region’s rapidly growing technology center,” said Pattie Money, Chief People Officer at SendGrid. “Without question, we attribute this award to our commitment to creating an environment where we are able to do our best work and raise the bar at SendGrid every day. We are honored to be recognized for our dedication and efforts in making SendGrid a Best Place to Work and appreciate all of our Gridders who are also committed to ensuring we’re a great place to work. It’s a true team effort.”
SendGrid opened its new Orange County office in March 2018, nearly tripling the footprint of the previous office. Located at 400 Spectrum Center Drive in Irvine, CA, the new office design incorporates input and feedback from existing employees. The space features an open floor plan design, floor-to-ceiling windows, pairing rooms for engineers to code together and many collaborative workspaces.
Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Orange County and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
The ranking of the winning organizations was released via a special section of the Orange County Business Journal’s July 23 issue.
