34 Strong Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on INC. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2021

34 Strong is a 2021 Best Workplace as well as in the Established Excellence: 5-14 years in business, and Micro: Employee size 10-49 Categories


[SACRAMENTO, CA] (May 12, 2021) – 34 Strong has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”

The very first “Best Workplace” that 34 Strong built was our own! Everything starts with three core values, which are repeated and built on at every staff meeting: strong spirit, grateful attitude, and courageous heart. Every team member plays to their strengths, stays resilient, and strives to do their best work. They validate each others’ contributions, recognize each others’ needs, and negotiate working relationships that work for everyone. By putting people first, we create the loyalty and drive that other organizations dream of.
