The Philadelphia Inquirer Names Linode a Winner of the Delaware Valley Top Workplaces 2019 Award


PHLADELPHIA, March 5, 2019 – Linode, the leading cloud for developers, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Philadelphia Inquirer. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

“There is an undeniable link between employee experience and customer experience,” said Director of Human Resources, Vincent Palochko. “For the last 15 years, Linode has led the market, fueled by our passion for the developer community and our award-winning customer service. None of this would be possible without our commitment to our employees and creating a collaborative work experience filled with learning and growth opportunities.”

Linode was also recently awarded a Bronze Stevie® Award for Customer Service Department of the Year – Computer Services, alongside recognized leaders like Mailchimp and BambooHR.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
