With a growing workforce Calix continues to climb in multiple rankings—including best company for culture, best company for women, best company for diversity, and best CEO—based on analysis of employee ratings on Comparably
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Based on input from its expanding workforce, Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) continues to receive accolades from Comparably, winning recognition for creating one of the best company cultures in the United States. Calix continues to evolve the “better, better, never best” culture and attract the best and brightest to further its status as a platform and cloud leader in the booming broadband industry. Calix ranked in the top 20 for company culture (#16), with an A+ rating, among large companies in the United States. Calix also ranked in the Top 20 for Best Company for Diversity (#2), Best Company for Women (#14) and Best CEO (#17).
The annual Comparably Workplace Culture Awards are based on anonymous sentiment ratings submitted by employees over a 12-month period (December 2021 through December 2022). For large companies—those with more than 500 employees—at least 15 percent of employees are required to participate to validate a company’s ratings. Calix saw its rankings rise significantly in four categories of the Comparably Q4 Workplace Culture Awards this year.
- Best Company Culture (#16). Even as Calix expanded its global workforce, its culture ranking from Comparably climbed from #21 to #16. This puts Calix ahead of numerous tech giants, including Google and IBM.
- Best Company for Diversity (#2). For diversity, Comparably ranks Calix above tech companies like Concentrix, HubSpot, and IBM. Calix rose to #2 from #27 in 2021—an amazing jump of 25 places on the list and a confirmation of how highly Calix values diversity in the workplace. Diverse team members at Calix consistently give the company an A+ rating.
- Best Company for Women (#14). This is a significant jump from a previous ranking of #69. Calix offers programs that extend resources, foster community, and explore challenges and opportunities facing women in the telecommunications industry. Women hold top positions on the Calix Executive Leadership and Governance teams.
- Best CEO (#17). Michael Weening, who joined Calix in 2016 as executive vice president of global sales, and was promoted to CEO in 2022, ranked #17 on the Comparably list of Best CEOs.
Earlier this year, employee feedback on Comparably propelled Calix into the top echelon of companies with the brightest long-term outlook for success and world-class engineering. As a leading provider of cloud and software platforms to the broadband industry, Calix has invested more than a decade and over $1 billion to develop these innovations. Thanks to this commitment, broadband service providers (BSPs) of any size can simplify their businesses, offer new services that excite residential and business subscribers, and grow the value they provide their communities. Calix and its BSP customers play a transformative role in connecting communities and closing the “digital divide” by bringing differentiated managed services to areas that would otherwise remain unserved or underserved.
“Success starts with people—team members, customers and partners—as our leaders live the mantra of ‘invest in the success of others to be successful,’” said Weening. “A new board member recently stated that Calix is the coolest cloud company that he had never heard of in Silicon Valley. It’s great to see that changing as our evolving culture gets recognized for the special workplace that it is. This starts with purpose, where every team member is asked to know their purpose and how they will help broadband service providers of all sizes leverage our platforms to simplify, excite, and grow their business and community. We then follow that with a ‘better, better, never best’ mindset, where we ask team members to ensure that we are continually changing and improving the culture and company. I look forward to our ongoing improvement as new team members join to support our growth journey.”
