BlackLine Inc. was recognized by Newsweek magazine and Best Practice Institute on their 2022 Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces list. The Woodland Hills accounting software developer was ranked at No. 56 on the annual list compiled by the weekly news publication and Best Practices Institute, a leadership development and benchmark research company based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
“Folks here know where they stand,” Newsweek wrote in its coverage of BlackLine. “Managers and employees meet on a regular basis to discuss goals and achievements. Better yet, the company offers unlimited paid time off. See you in Bali.”
Susan Otto, BlackLine’s chief people officer, said that the company’s culture is focused on its people and providing the tools and support for them to succeed.
“We aim to offer everyone the opportunity to do great work, develop their career and find their purpose,” Otto said in a statement. “We are honored that our employees told Newsweek they love BlackLine.”
The list recognizes companies that put respect, caring and appreciation for their employees at the center of their business model and, in doing so, have earned the loyalty and respect of the people who work for them, according to a release from BlackLine.
The results were determined after surveying more than 1.4 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000, the company’s release said.
In addition to BlackLine’s strong culture, career-development opportunities and unlimited paid time off, some of the other benefits the company offers include an employee stock purchase plan, annual tuition reimbursement, a match of up to $250 a year for employee donations to nonprofits, and extended maternity coverage and paid parental leave, the release added.
Other Los Angeles area companies making the list were ZipRecruiter in Santa Monica at No. 7, restaurant chain Sweetgreen in Crenshaw at No.33, UCLA Health in Westwood at No. 82 and East West Bank in Pasadena at No. 99.
