Marqeta wins Fortune Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™ award
We’re proud to share that Marqeta has been named one of Fortune’s 2022 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™. We landed the #23 spot on the list of the top 75 small and medium-sized companies in the Bay Area. The Fortune Best Workplaces in the Bay Area list is highly competitive and selected using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization and headquartered in the Bay Area.
Fortune selected this list based on employee feedback collected through employee survey responses and data, which represented more than 6.1 million U.S. employees. In 2021, we were certified by Great Place to Work (GPTW) and received valuable insights into how employees felt about working at Marqeta. In that survey, 92% of our employees said that Marqeta is a great place to work, compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. You can see more of our results on our GPTW company profile.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“As employee demands and expectations have dramatically changed over the past year, these companies have risen to the occasion—and it’s not been easy,” says Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Global Recognition, Research & Strategic Partnerships at Great Place to Work. “Their hard work and dedication to listen to and care for the well-being of every employee, and support them in a way that’s meaningful to all, is the standard all organizations will be held to.”
We wouldn’t be where we are without our people and we are so honored to be recognized for this award in the Bay Area, where we established our roots over 10 years ago. See the full list of awarded companies.
