Buffer Named One Of Inc. Magazine's Best Workplaces of 2018

Buffer is one of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee engagement

Buffer is grateful to be recognized as one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication’s third annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.

The award is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies.

“We’re honored to be receiving this award from Inc. At Buffer, we’re focused on cultivating a positive, inclusive, inspiring and supportive culture. I’m proud of our team for living up to our values. Our goal is to create a workplace of the future, an organization with trust and freedom. We’re delighted to receive this recognition.” -Joel Gascoigne, Buffer CEO

The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. Each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count.

“By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.”- James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief.
