Confirm BioSciences Named Among Best Places to Work of 2018 by Inc Magazine

Confirm BioSciences is one of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee

San Diego CAConfirm BioSciences is named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018. This announcement follows a string of recognition for the company’s culture and growth. Confirm BioSciences is not only the Winner of San Diego Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” award for 3 years in a row; they’re also an Inc. “Honor Roll” recipient for being one of “The Fastest Growing Private Small Companies” for 5 consecutive years.

Inc. Magazine’s “Best Places to Work” Award is the result of a vastly comprehensive assessment of private American companies with vibrant workplace cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefit packages.

Partnered with Omaha-based Quantum Workplace, Inc. Magazine hovers a magnifying glass over the innovative ways companies raise the bar to hire and retain top talent.

What does it take to become a business that workers want to support? Inc. Magazine believes it takes more than good pay and perks; it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership to inspire teamwork.

“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as of one the ‘Best Places to Work’ in 2018”, said Zeynep Ilgaz, President and CEO of Confirm Biosciences. Zeynep is one of many leaders who understand the positive correlation between investing in people and scaling a business. “It has always been our priority to foster a positive company culture where our team members can shine and grow while producing meaningful work, which this recognition exemplifies,” she continued.

Inc.’s “Best Workplaces” Award screens over 8,000 organizations on the basis of offered benefits, as well as employee responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by every company that applies.

Responses are evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. Business size is factored to level the playing field between small and large organizations. To qualify for the award, companies must achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Additional criteria includes a minimum of 10 active employees, U.S. foundation, private holding, and independent ownership (not subsidized or divided).

While researching entries, Inc. and Quantum notice the emergence of distinct themes:

  • Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
  • Workers for the best companies don’t view their employers as “sugar daddies”. They aren’t mesmerized by giveaways or fads—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
  • When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proves to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
