Charleston, S.C. (September 12, 2022) — Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, has been named to Quartz’s ranking of the Best Companies for Remote Workers 2022. Blackbaud is one of the top 20 large companies that made the list and is the largest company on the list.
“Blackbaud officially transitioned to a remote-first workforce approach in November 2021, so we are thrilled to receive this recognition ahead of our one-year mark,” said Margaret “Maggie” Driscoll, chief people and culture officer, Blackbaud. “Together, with our customers, the work we do impacts millions of lives. That’s why we work so hard, and why it’s so important to us that our culture is one that promotes success for all.”
"Companies at the vanguard of remote work helped show everyone else how to do it. Now we are seeing their best practices replicated across industries, at companies of all sizes," said Quartz executive editor Heather Landy. "The companies on our ranking are putting their remote policies to use as a recruiting and retention play, as a tool for diversifying their talent pool, and as a performance strategy. Our second annual ranking honors businesses that have gone above and beyond in ensuring that their remote workers have the tools they need, from technology stipends to wellness perks, to do their jobs effectively."
Blackbaud’s remote-first workplace culture is focused on:
- Enabling people who want to drive impact for social good, alongside colleagues and customers who are working together to build a better world
- Encouraging the continuous ability to learn, evolve and grow, whether that’s taking on new challenges, exploring opportunities or gaining skills, regardless of location
- Embracing diverse perspectives and experiences that help the company deliver all it can for its customers
- Supporting employees’ personal and professional wellbeing, providing the flexibility and resources people need to attend to the things that matter most to them
Over the past year, Blackbaud has also been named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek, one of America’s Best Mid-Size Employers by Forbes, and one of America’s Best Employers by State by Forbes.
