Seismic Ranked on 2017 Top Company Cultures List Presented by Entrepreneur and CultureIQ

SAN DIEGO, February 21 – Seismic, the leading enterprise grade sales enablement platform, was recently ranked on Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with culture management software and service provider CultureIQ®. The Top Company Cultures list has placed Seismic as the 18th top culture in the Large Company category. Seismic is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.

The recognition follows Seismic being named a Best Place to Work by both the San Diego Business Journal and the Boston Business Journal two years in a row. San Diego and Boston are home to Seismic’s two largest offices, and the company also has offices in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Melbourne, Australia.

“Seismic employees come to work with a sense of purpose – that what we do directly impacts our customers’ lives by helping them reach the top levels of their job performance,” said Doug Winter, Seismic co-founder and CEO. “This is a main reason why Seismic continues to be recognized for our culture, and it is an honor to now be included in this list of great companies from around the country that strive to make employee satisfaction a top priority.”

“Great company cultures don’t happen on their own. They’re the result of great leadership, and a conscious effort to make everyone on a team feel engaged and important,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “The honorees on our 2017 list are proof that strong cultures make even stronger companies. Entrepreneurs at all levels can draw inspiration from them.”

The full list, presenting a total of 153 companies categorized as small, medium-sized or large companies—with 25-49 employees, 50-99 employees and more than 100 employees respectively— is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.

“A high-performance culture leads not only to employee engagement but also to measurable business results,” says Greg Besner, founder and CEO of CultureIQ.  “These organizations show us that great companies start with great culture.”

The rankings for all companies were determined using CultureIQ’s methodology for measuring high-performance cultures. Employees at each company received a survey of multiple-choice questions and the answers were used to assess a company’s strength across 10 core components of culture–collaboration, innovation and communication to name a few. The companies with the highest scores became the Top Company Culture list in ranking order. To be considered for the ranking, a company must have at least 25 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2015 and be headquartered in the U.S.
