At DigitalOcean, love is at our core—and love has also landed us on Newsweek’s 2022 Most Loved Workplaces List for the second year in a row. DigitalOcean ranked 32nd on the list of the top 100 companies, as determined by employee sentiment.
Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces List surveys employees across the country on select criteria such as the level of trust, respect, collaboration, care, and recognition that they experience at their companies. These scores culminate in an overall “Love Index” score for each company, as measured in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI). This year, more than 1.4 million employees across the U.S., from small, medium, and large companies alike, participated.
“The companies on this list represent the best at placing love at the center of their employee’s experience,” said Louis Carter, CEO of the Best Practice Institute and Most Loved Workplace Founder. “The number of applications this year and analysis of survey data reinforces our original findings that love is the strongest predictor of the strength of a company’s culture, employee engagement, and satisfaction.”
DigitalOcean received particularly high sentiment scores in categories such as trust, inclusivity, and our employees’ overall vision of the future.
Trust (Score: 4.7/5)
DigitalOcean cultivates trust among employees through a commitment to transparency and open communication at all levels. DigitalOcean employees are encouraged to ask questions of executives at company-wide All-Hands, and individual departments will also host regular All-Hands and AUAs (Ask-Us-Anythings) to ensure teams are aligned with overall business and organizational goals.
Inclusivity (Score: 4.6/5)
At DigitalOcean, one of our core values is that “our community is bigger than us”. This value ensures that our teams work toward inclusivity not only among employees, but across our larger developer, entrepreneurial, and open source communities as well. Internal events such as those put on by DigitalOcean’s ERGs help build inclusive communities internally, while externally, employees are encouraged to get involved with the organizations and nonprofits of DO Impact via volunteer opportunities, or contribute to open source events such as our yearly Hacktoberfest.
Positive Vision of the Future (Score: 4.6/5)
Employees also reported having a strong “positive vision of the future” at DigitalOcean. Since helping builders chase their dreams is at the core of our work at DigitalOcean, our global employee base thrives on fostering innovation and inspiration. The spirit of helping entrepreneurs and small businesses achieve their goals resonates with our employee experience internally as well.
