"This recognition from FORTUNE magazine is all about our employees, who bring a passion and an energy to work that creates an environment where innovation thrives," said Tom Georgens, president and CEO of NetApp. "Building the best team in the industry and creating a culture that inspires employees is a key component of NetApp's business strategy. It directly contributes to driving growth and success for us, and for our customers and partners."
According to the Great Place to Work Institute, creating a great workplace is one of the best investments a company can make, leading to better recruitment, lower turnover, greater innovation, higher productivity, stronger employee satisfaction, and, most importantly, more loyal customers and higher profits. It is NetApp's commitment to creating a model company that has been a core element of the company's strategy of creating more innovative products, a terrific work environment for employees, and more satisfying relationships with customers and partners around the world.
This last year has been an exciting time for NetApp as the company celebrated its 20th anniversary, joined the FORTUNE 500 list, and grew to nearly 13,000 employees. This ranking follows NetApp's #3 World's Best Multinational Workplaces ranking, and is evidence of NetApp's thriving culture.
