Minneapolis — Jun 20, 2018 

Code42, a leading provider of information security solutions, has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. A complete list of those selected is available at StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2018 and will also be published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 24.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 27-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota, based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 71,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, formerly WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

Code42 was ranked 14 on the midsize company list.

"We’re thrilled to be ranked among Minnesota’s top employers and thank our employees for the comments that led to this honor. While it’s a very competitive labor market in high tech, we are fortunate to continue to attract the best of the best," said Joe Payne, president and chief executive officer of Code42. "The dedication and hard work of our employees enables us to fulfill our number one mission each day—protecting the ideas of our customers from the rising threat of cyber attacks."

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, "The companies in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies."

Code42’s information security solutions protect critical data for over 50,000 organizations worldwide, including seven of the world’s 10 largest tech companies, 13 of the top 20 most valuable brands and seven of the eight Ivy League schools. The company offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes flexible work schedules; health, disability and life insurance; paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave; competitive PTO policy, including paid volunteer days; and a 401(K) match, among others.

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,400 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
