Apptio Honored as Bronze Winner in 2021 Stevie Awards for Great Employers

Apptio lauded for delivering career growth, employee support, and CEO office hours

Bellevue, WA – September 7, 2021 Apptio has been named the Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the Employer of the Year category for computer software companies with more than 250 employees in the sixth annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements, and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work.

Judges applauded Apptio’s commitment to transparency and employee engagement with regular CEO office hours and face time between top-level leadership and employees. Paid volunteer time, “exhale days” (additional days off given to all employees) and employee resource groups demonstrated “commitment and care for employees.” Judges also noted that Apptio “takes important steps to prevent silos within its organization with mentorship opportunities and resources for communications.”

“Everyone connected to Apptio is proud to be recognized for something we already knew—Apptio is a great place to work,” said Chief People Officer Missy Waggoner. “I’m thrilled that the judges called out our commitment to career development. When you join Apptio, you aren’t just starting a job; you are building a career.  Employee wellbeing is always our number one priority—never more so during a tough year.  Exhale days coordinate company-wide time off so there is no email backlog to fret over while you are taking a day to recharge. Employee resource groups support personal or career development and ensure we are focused on fostering an inclusive environment.”

More than 70 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“In the sixth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by all of the nominees, who – during the crises we’ve confronted this year and last – continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We look forward to celebrating the Stevie winners’ achievements during our November 17 virtual awards ceremony,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.
