95% of Thoughtworkers agreed with the statement, “Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work.”
Thoughtworks, a global technology consultancy that integrates strategy, design and engineering to drive digital innovation, has been recognized for its outstanding workplace culture by being placed on Great Place to Work® Australia’s 2022 Best Workplaces list in the medium sized companies category for the second year in a row.
The Great Place to Work List identifies the top organizations that create great workplaces through well researched metrics and is one of the longest running recognition programs when it comes to workplace culture.
“To be featured not once, but twice in a row among Australia’s best workplaces is a wonderful recognition,” said Kristan Vingrys, managing director at Thoughtworks Australia.
“Our purpose centers on empowering the world through a collaborative culture and technology excellence. It’s our extraordinary people who sit at the core of our success and we aim to foster a genuine sense of belonging that enables us to grow and evolve together, as we meet every new challenge.”
With roots in custom software and agile software delivery, since its inception over 27 years ago, Thoughtworks has been committed to helping organizations solve their most important problems with technology as the differentiator.
The business has grown its cross-functional teams, comprised of strategists, developers, data engineers and designers to over 12,000, and has 50 offices spanning 17 countries. In Australia, Thoughtworks employs around 400 people and in 2021 established its First Nations Delivery Centre as the cornerstone of its commitment to providing greater opportunities for First Nations technologists.
Thoughtworks continues investing in its culture to help build inclusive and empowering workplace experiences, and earlier this year introduced a new Belonging Lead to foster a culture of inclusivity, creating a safe environment where people are able to thrive and be themselves.
Pallavi Johnson, head of People at Thoughtworks Australia said, “We’re incredibly proud to once again be included in Australia’s Best Workplaces List. It’s a true testament to our continued efforts in making Thoughtworks the place for employees to make their mark through lasting impact and career defining experiences.”
