Applause Named One of Boston’s Top Places to Work for Fourth Straight Year; Wins Multiple International Awards

Company recognized for winning culture, innovation and product excellence

Applause, the worldwide leader in enabling digital quality, today announced it has been named one of the Boston Globe’s best workplaces for the fourth straight year.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 363 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.

“The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and the companies that embraced that change, and put their employees’ needs first, really stood out,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.

Applause’s company culture was also recognized on a national stage by both Built In and Inc. Magazine earlier in 2021 on their lists of the United State’s top workplaces.

The company’s commitment to excellence extends beyond internal culture to its best-in-class testing solutions, enterprise-grade platform, continuous innovation, global community and customer focus. That’s why the Boston Globe, Built In and Inc. Magazine honors were just three of 10 awards Applause won in 2021. Other notable honors include the Stevie People’s Choice Award for Favorite Company, Germany’s CX1 Award for CX Enabler, a gold ranking for Best DevOps Solution along with two bronze honors in the International Business Awards, and a silver ranking for Most Innovative Enterprise Product at the 2021 Best in Biz International Awards.

“Applause’s culture is built on a foundation of customer obsession, open and honest communication, and a ruthless focus on digital quality,” said Bradley Batchelder, Applause’s SVP of People. “These global awards demonstrate that we are making an international impact in helping the world’s leading brands deliver uncommonly great digital experiences to their end users. And we are doing so while providing a world-class and award-winning employee culture that is driven by empowerment, recognition and reward.”
