The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Names Big Nerd Ranch an Atlanta Top Workplace for 2020

April 20, 2020  (ATLANTA, GA) – Digital product development and training firm Big Nerd Ranch has been awarded a spot on the Top Workplaces list by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC). This marks the third award for BNR.  

For the 2020 awards, 2,956 Atlanta companies submitted applications and 68,123 employees were surveyed. In the end, only 150 companies were chosen as Top Workplaces. Big Nerd Ranch placed 12th out of 65 small companies (149 or fewer employees). They additionally placed #1 in the work/life balance award. 

“It’s such an honor to be recognized by our employees and the AJC as a Best Place to Work,” said Stacy Henry, CEO of Big Nerd Ranch. “Big Nerd Ranch is a great company with a strong culture based on our core values of being brilliant, hard-working and kind. These values, along with a continued focus on learning, allow us to Build Brilliance for our clients and students. We’re proud to bring the same passion that we have for our culture to each and every project we work on.

The list of winners is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey and administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“For more than a decade, the Top Workplaces award has helped organizations stand out among their competitors to attract talent,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s tight labor market. No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”
