CHICAGO, August 31, 2022 — Great Place to Work and PEOPLE magazine have named Sprout Social as one of the 2022 PEOPLE Companies that Care. The Companies that Care award is based on over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees. In that survey, 96% of employees said Sprout Social is a great place to work, which is 68% higher than the average U.S. company.

Companies were only considered for the PEOPLE Companies that Care List if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization, and this year marks Sprout Social’s fourth consecutive year as a certified company. With a team of more than 1,000 people worldwide, Sprout is focused on building a sustainable culture where all employees can bring their full selves to work—whether that means supporting a distributed work environment, providing comprehensive parental leave benefits or creating space for team members to connect with like-minded colleagues through Community Resource Groups.

“Our placement on this year’s list is unparalleled compared to the gratitude we feel for our team who made this accomplishment possible,” said Rachael Pfenning, who leads Sprout’s People and Operations teams. “It’s been a rewarding experience to see our team celebrate the changing landscape of distributed work, support one another and continue to do exceptional work as we continue to grow and expand our talent base globally. I am honored to see our team and culture recognized on this highly competitive list.”

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“Caring isn’t about being ‘nice,’” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s about understanding the real needs of your people, of your community and of the world—and showing up in ways that make a meaningful impact. These companies make that kind of caring for people, and even the environment, part of their daily fabric.”

Sprout Social also ranked #6 on the list of Best Workplaces in Chicago™ this year, and in 2021, on the list of Best Workplaces in Technology™, Parents™ and Millennials™. Learn more about Sprout’s workplace accomplishments here.
