CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 24, 2020 - Quickbase, the leading low-code platform for operational agility, today announced that it has been recognized by Comparably as a 2020 Best Company for Professional Development. The company ranked in the top 5 percent of similar-sized companies for professional development, as well as among the top 5 percent of companies in Boston.
“At Quickbase, we believe in empowering our people to grow their careers the way they desire,” said Amy Cohn, chief human resources officer. “This award is a recognition of our commitment to building a dynamic and supportive work environment that makes it possible for employees to learn and grow quickly, catapulting their careers forward. We’re very proud to say that, as a result, more than one-third of Quickbase employees are in a new role today than they were in just a year ago.”
One such employee is Tanya Fox, manager of enterprise sales, who started at Quickbase over four years ago on the small business team. “At Quickbase, both internally and with our customers, we empower those closest to the work to drive the change we need to be successful. I was given the freedom to innovate with a fail-fast mentality, which resulted in early success that led me to be promoted four times in just a few years.”
Another example is Ryan Murray, senior product owner, who joined Quickbase five years ago on the support team. “We have an amazingly open and supporting culture that encourages employees to move into areas where they feel that they can positively impact the business and fulfill their own personal growth goals. And because Quickbase is a growing company, there are always opportunities to move up or around the organization.”
Quickbase offers a wealth of professional development opportunities for its employees. Examples include:
- Partnering with institutions of higher education like Northeastern University to place students in co-op opportunities across the business. Over 50% of our co-ops are hired after graduation and have moved into a new role or been promoted within 18 months of starting.
- Quickbase’s Tuition Assistance Program, which offers up to $5,000 per year in reimbursement for employees pursuing continued education to further their career development.
- An ongoing commitment to giving high-potential employees opportunities by providing a supportive path to learn and grow quickly into expanded and new roles.
