Award highlights Apptio’s exceptional company culture

Morrisville, NC, July 27, 2021Apptio, Inc., a leading provider of technology business management (TBM) solutions that help organizations analyze, plan, and optimize technology spend, announced it has been named one of the Triangle Business Journal’s 2021 Best Places to Work honorees. Apptio was awarded this recognition due to high marks in areas such as team effectiveness, trust with co-workers, manager effectiveness and work engagements.

“Our people—we call them Apptians—are our most important asset,” says Missy Waggoner, Chief People Officer at Apptio. “With the challenges of the past year, our dedication to upholding a culture that employees value has only become more important. We believe in transparency, personal development, professional growth, wellness and fostering an inclusive environment where Apptians are empowered to be their authentic selves at work.”

Apptio supports employees’ professional development and wellness through efforts such as its mentor program and eMindful, which delivers live, virtual mindfulness sessions with experts to guide employees through stressors such as anxiety, mindful parenting, working with remote teams, and more.

Employees can also join Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which serve as safe spaces for employees who share a common identity to meet and support one another in building their community and sense of belonging at the company. ERGs include Asian and Pacific Islander Alliance, ApptioPRIDE, Black Inclusion Group, and Women@Apptio.

“At Apptio, we are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse company culture that allows everyone to feel safe and provides opportunities to grow and advance their career,” Waggoner says. “This commitment to inclusion starts at the top and continues throughout our organization. I’m proud that we have diverse representation in our executive leadership team.”

The winners were chosen based on an employee-survey process conducted by Quantum Workplace. Once nominated, a company had to meet a threshold in employee participation – a percentage that varies based upon the size of the company – to be eligible to be honored.
