Forbes, Fortune and Great Place to Work® honour Highspot for the second consecutive year
LONDON, 11th Aug. 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Highspot, the sales enablement platform that increases the performance of sales teams, today announced another year of top-tier recognition for its business growth and culture. Highspot has been named to the Forbes Cloud 100, the annual definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world. In addition, Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work® recognised Highspot as one of 2021’s Best Workplaces.
“People are at the heart of every great company,” said Robert Wahbe, CEO, Highspot. “Over the course of the last year, our employees demonstrated resilience and innovation in the face of uncertainty. Every day, we work to create an inclusive culture where our employees show up for each other in the best possible way. The end-result is a company that is more diverse, innovative and customer-centric.”
The Forbes Cloud 100 is published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. The official Cloud 100 judge panel, composed primarily of public cloud CEOs, weighted four factors in the evaluation process: market leadership (35 percent), estimated valuation (30 percent), operating metrics (20 percent) and people and culture (15 percent). Highspot climbed 52 spots to number 46 on this year’s Cloud 100, one of the biggest gains for this year’s honourees.
The Best Workplaces award is based on an analysis of survey responses from employees. In that survey, 97 percent of Highspot’s employees said Highspot is a great place to work compared to 59 percent of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
The recognition continues a record-breaking fiscal year for the company as companies such as Aetna, a CVS Health company; DocuSign, General Motors, Nestle, Verizon Media and hundreds more adopt Highspot to drive consistent sales performance and build a scalable, repeatable revenue engine in dynamic market conditions.
As global demand for sales enablement continues to rise, Highspot is scaling internationally across its North America and EMEA operations to support hundreds of customers and accelerate its platform development. Amidst its growth, Highspot is continuing its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, aspiring to reflect the diversity of the communities in which it operates and create an environment where every employee brings their true and unique selves to work. As part of this mission, the company is pursuing aggressive hiring targets for under-represented groups and partnering with organisations dedicated to diversifying the technology space, including Ada Developers Academy, Technology Access Foundation and Year Up.
