To help identify what makes a great workplace, the Chicago Tribune surveys tens of thousands of employees each year and uses their responses to build a list of the best places to work in Chicago. Sprout Social is honored to be included on the list for the third year in a row, ranking No. 4 on the list of midsize companies for 2017. This recognition is particularly meaningful because it is based on employee feedback regarding several aspects of workplace culture.

“We take an inclusive approach to everything we build, including our culture,” said Maureen Calabrese, Chief People Officer. “It is wonderful to see these efforts recognized by the Chicago Tribune and we continue to work to ensure that the culture we create is fueled by our employees and feels authentic to the team we’ve built.”

By encouraging the intersection of personal interest and professional experience, Sprout’s culture has been able to grow and flourish organically. Team members know they can come here to work, learn and collaborate with the best in the business, all while feeling supported to pursue their own passions, both within and outside of our walls.

Employees are empowered to identify and implement programs that feed them. Over the years, this has expanded to include an annual hackathon, day of service, summer canoe trip, monthly happy hours and employee development trainings, among other opportunities.

Thank you to every member of Team Sprout for their steadfast dedication to building great products and creating a workplace where all people and perspectives are welcome.
