Alida, the creator of the world’s first CXM & Insights Platform, announced that it has been selected as a 2021 “Best Career Growth” Winner from Comparably, ranking #1 out of the top 50 small/mid-sized companies in North America. In addition, Alida’s CEO, Ross Wainwright was awarded as one of the Best CEOs for Women and Best CEOs for Diversity, ranking #6 on both lists.
Comparably analysed over 10 million anonymous employee ratings across 60,000 North American companies and determined those highest rated for career growth in 2021. Final rankings were based on sentiment ratings regarding professional development opportunities for employees and the company’s overall workplace culture score.
Comparably’s “Best CEOs for Women” and “Best CEOs for Diversity” awards were determined from employee sentiment ratings from women employees and from employees identified as being from diverse backgrounds, respectively. Every CEO on both of these lists is in the Top 5% of all CEOs rated by female employees and employees of colour.
“It is an honour to receive the 2021 Comparably awards for Best CEO for Women and for Diversity. I am so proud to work with dedicated and passionate employees from diverse backgrounds who add so much value to our culture,” said Wainwright.
“Our employees are encouraged to bring their true selves to work everyday — to be bold, empathetic, curious and authentic — and this is what makes Alida the best place for career growth. Through the past year, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) has remained a top priority and we are committed to being better and doing better as we continue on this journey.”
Comparably CEO Jason Nazar said: “As the world was plagued by the pandemic of the past year, employees needed executives who could lead with strength and compassion.”
“Alida’s multiple award wins is a testament to the strong CEO they have in Ross Wainwright and how committed the organization is to diversity and career growth.”
