Code42 Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2022

Minneapolis —

Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list for the third consecutive year. Featured in the May/June 2022 issue, now on newsstands and prominently featured on, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility.

Creative thinkers with diverse insights are the people who power Code42’s innovative data protection solutions, which are built with the modern-day collaborative culture in mind. Tracking activity across computers, email and the cloud, the company’s SaaS-based Insider Risk Management solutions, Incydr and Instructor, surface and prioritize file exposure and exfiltration events that represent real business threats, need investigation and response. The culture at Code42 fosters collaboration, engagement, inclusion, professional and personal development and the opportunity to make an impact. Code42 is based in Minneapolis and has about 500 employees across the U.S. and in Europe.  

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

“We are honored that our employees’ feedback has earned us this recognition from Inc. for a third time,” said Joe Payne, Code42 president and CEO. “At Code42, we strive to innovate across our company – from the Insider Risk Management solutions we deliver and professional development we promote to the culture we nurture through our corporate values, and affinity and philanthropy programs. We take seriously our responsibility to leave the world a better place while creating a work environment where top talent can thrive and stay connected in a hybrid work environment." 
“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
