We’re excited to announce that PubMatic India is recognized among “India’s Best Workplaces in IT & IT-BPM 2019” as one of the top 75 companies and workplaces. This is a particularly great honor as this recognition is only for the “best-of-the-best” and it comes after only two years of participating in the larger Great Place to Work (GPTW) certification.

This award was possible only due to our employees who participated in the survey and made this happen. The survey response rate was a whopping 96% and our employees rated the company high on all the five parameters, including: Credibility of Management, Respect for People, Fairness at the Workplace, Pride, and Camaraderie between People. It was encouraging to see our collective efforts validated and laurelled by the employees themselves. With that said, we won’t stop investing in our culture and people; we know that we need to continually improve and this is just the beginning.

Certification Steps & Process

Participation in the study was simple and straight forward. However, when the time came to fill in the “Culture Audit,” consisting of 16 different areas of people practices, it made me reflect on the enormous impact all of the various conscious and unconscious team efforts and institutionalized processes have made on our company and people. When I really think back on what contributed to this success story, two compelling reasons came to mind – our “Commitment to Excellence” and our focus on the “Employee Experience”.

At PubMatic, our cultural principles and company values guide our actions. Globally, we value innovation, collaboration and teamwork, action, and hard work. Each employee is held to these standards and individually strives to over-deliver whenever possible. This has created a strong cultural foundation that we have been building upon in each of our 13 offices.

We continue to invest in our people and technology through regular weekly trainings, budget for external education opportunities, annual and global hackathons, machine learning courses and certification, and more. Our practices around top-down and bottom-up communication, cross-functional collaboration and global connections, rewards and recognition, plus learning and development create a supportive and inclusive work culture allowing us to celebrate and learn together. These are the building blocks of our great workplace. It instills a sense of belonging and pride in me to work with such influential leaders and great people. I am thankful to be a part of this team and am excited to see the ways we will continue to grow in India and globally.

The Significance of Being a Great Place to Work

A compelling study by GPTW shares what differentiates employees in a “Prisoner at Work” zone as against those that report a “High-Trust Retention” experience. The analysis reveals that employee perception in the areas of Fairness, Career Growth and Management Reliability clearly stand out as differentiating areas. It also talks about what differentiates “The Best” from the “The Rest”. The study said that Best Workplaces make a conscious effort to ensure that the employees are valued and are compensated for their talent and effort. The Best Workplaces ensure that there is an equitable distribution of profits and they care for the financial wellbeing of their employees.

Their study also emphasizes that Best Workplaces have been able to design and implement unique programs and practices in areas like Developing, Thanking and Celebrating which have enhanced employee experiences.
