Audigent is Named a “Small Company Standout” as Part of Fast Company’s List of the 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators

Audigent, the leading data identity, curation, and activation platform, has been named a “Small Company Standout” by Fast Company as part of the publication’s fourth annual Best Workplaces for Innovators. The list honours organisations and businesses that demonstrate a steadfast commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.

Audigent was one of 11 honourees with fewer than 100 employees that was featured by Fast Company’s judges as having created impressive cultures of innovation. The New York City-based company was singled out for its considerable efforts to promote employee mental and physical health. This includes wellness benefits and biweekly small-group counselling sessions offered to all employees.

“This is a great honour because it speaks not just to the innovative products that we are able to bring to market, but to the ways that we strive to care for our employees and build high performing teams,” said Drew Stein, CEO and founder of Audigent. “Too often, investment in ‘innovation’ is only focused on products and technology alone - especially at a moment in time when the “how” and “where” we work has been completely disrupted - investing in our people and in our workplace has been key to our success.”

Audigent was founded on the principle of giving every employee a voice and running a flat organisational hierarchy.  A core mantra is “great ideas come from anyone, anytime and from anywhere within the organisation.” The company holds weekly Friday all-hands meetings - creating a public forum for everyone’s ideas as well as bi-weekly small group meetings that focus on positivity and productivity.  Beyond that, the company offers work from remote and unlimited PTO for its employees as well as having an in-house mentor (chief people officer, Scott Elias) who works with individual employees on performance planning and driving teamwork.  The results speak for themselves as Audigent was just named to the INC 5000, debuting as the 17th fastest growing tech company in NYC, 29th fastest growing tech company and 249th fastest growing company in America.  

Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2022 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, engineering, diversity, sustainability, B2B, and consumer products and services. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers worked together to score nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies. The 2022 awards feature workplaces from around the world.
