CHICAGO and CHENNAI, India — August 2, 2021 — FourKites®, the world’s leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, today announced that it has been named a Great Place to Work® by the Great Place to Work (GPTW) Institute, an independent research and consulting firm. This award marks the third consecutive year that FourKites has received certification as a Great Place to Work.
GPTW Certification is awarded to organizations that are building a top-performing culture with a high degree of employee trust. More than 10,000 organizations from over 60 countries seek certification from the GPTW Institute each year. In 2021, FourKites received this distinction alongside leading global companies including Salesforce, Adobe, Cisco, Ericsson, DHL and ADP.
“Certification as a Great Place to Work is truly a gold standard, and is one of the most definitive employer-of-choice and workplace quality recognitions that an organization can receive,” said FourKites’ Founder and CEO Mathew Elenjickal. “This certification endorses our commitment to build a global organization with a larger purpose of social responsibility to our employees, while maintaining our hyper-growth and commitment to customer success.”
Companies are granted GPTW certification based on a proprietary Trust Index formula, which takes into account factors such as credibility, respect, pride, camaraderie and fairness. Additionally, company employees are asked to carry out a culture audit, designed to evaluate their company’s performance in each of nine major categories, including inspiration, speaking, listening, thanking, developing, caring, celebrating, sharing and hiring.
“It truly does take a village to run a high-performance workplace,” said Neeraj Sharma, Vice President, Human Resources at FourKites India. “Achieving certification as a Great Place to Work is one of the highest bars any company can reach, and it is a tremendous honor to have achieved that distinction for the past three years.”
