On the 2nd March, The Sunday Times in the UK published its annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For 2014. This was the first year we’ve been listed and we’re proud to place 43rd in the ‘Mid Company’ category. If you’d like to take a look at the full list you can find it here.

Best Companies' methodology, BCI Measure, is widely recognized as one of the most academically rigorous measures of workplace engagement. Data is collected from over 1.5 million employees, exploring workplace performance areas such as personal growth, wellbeing, leadership and team work. In essence it‘s recognition by your own employees about how they view the company.

We’re particularly pleased as we’ve worked hard to build our culture in tandem with our focus on creating a fast growth company that has expanded significantly geographically.

Taking a break: Mimecast Developer Azam Khalidi on the office pool table

We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining the most talented people to Mimecast which is why we invest heavily in training, mentoring and recognition in new and innovative ways. From the yoga studio in our Boston office to our ergonomically designed meeting pods in London, Mimecast pushes the boundaries for progressive working environments both physically and in the work we do.

As we look to our future, we realize that to fulfill our aspiration of being the largest and safest repository of human-generated data, we need a special team of the most talented people to achieve this right across our business from engineering to sales.

Which is why it was so great to be recognized last week – it’s a step in the right direction to forming the best company to deliver on this ambitious goal.
