RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 12, 2021 AgBiome, a leader in developing innovative products from the Earth’s microbial communities, announced the company has been recognized by Inc Magazine as a Best Place to Work for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.
Each year, Inc Magazine, an online and print publication for executives and entrepreneurs, facilitates an online survey of company employees. This year, the Best Workplaces survey was sent to all AgBiome employees — containing 30 scored items across six categories designed to measure employee engagement and other workplace factors including: communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in leadership.
“We’re very pleased to be ranked among some of the most respected companies,” said Elizabeth Claypoole, Chief People Officer at AgBiome. “AgBiome’s founders knew exactly what type of company culture they wanted from the beginning. We’ve cultivated and maintained a unique commitment organizational structure and collaborative culture.”
“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
“AgBiome’s ability to imagine a new future and execute that vision is made possible by a highly committed and purpose-driven team,” continued Claypoole. “We’ve built a unique culture and organizational structure that values workplace happiness as essential for high productivity and thrives on constant learning, transparency, respect, creativity, decisiveness, self-management, and above all, trust.”
