Cupcakes with sign of Top Work Places for 2021

SAN MATEO, Calif. – August 23, 2021 – Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today announced it has been named a winner of the Bay Area Top Workplaces 2021 award by Bay Area News Group.

Selection as one of the Bay Area Top Workplaces 2021 is based solely upon anonymous employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner, Energage LLC.  The research-backed employee engagement survey captures responses regarding company culture in the areas of alignment, connection, coaching, and performance. The survey also measures employee engagement, leadership and basics such as pay and benefits.

"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."

“Receiving a Top Workplaces award again is particularly gratifying this year, given the challenges that our team members faced as we implemented changes to our processes and operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” explained Ben Thacker, Senior Vice President, General Manager at Kensington. “Kensington strives to continuously improve our culture and put our employee base in a position to win and be challenged, to be happy and healthy, all in the framework of a can-do, entrepreneurial yet collaborative team culture. We strive to provide an environment where new ideas are welcomed and where our passion for customers, value-add products and solutions, and customer support can be on display.  This award validates our efforts to create a culture and work environment that employees embrace and that produces growth and results for our company.”
