Waggl has been named a Gold winner by the Best in Biz Awards 2019

“We are honored to be recognized by Best in Biz, alongside some of the most innovative and successful companies in the United States,” said Michael Papay, Co-founder and CEO, Waggl.

Waggl, the leading platform for real-time feedback powered by Employee Voice, today announced that it has been named a Gold winner in the Local Company of the Year category in Best in Biz Awards 2019.

Best in Biz Awards is the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications, including Associated Press, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired, and more. Award winners span the spectrum from blue-chip companies that form the bedrock of the world economy through mom-and-pop shops and Shark Tank sensations to some of today’s most innovative start-ups.

“We are honored to be recognized by Best in Biz, alongside some of the most innovative and successful companies in the United States,” said Michael Papay, Co-founder and CEO, Waggl. “We view this accolade as another significant validation of the value of elevating Employee Voice in the workplace. In order to truly engage people in the workplace, organizations need to include everyone’s voice about topics that matter (e.g. values, culture, strategy, change, process improvement, etc.). In an inclusive culture, people feel free to express their ideas and know that their opinions matter, and in turn, they feel connected to the organization and empowered to drive change.”

Each year, Best in Biz Awards assembles a top-notch judging panel to review and score all awards submissions. Having researched and covered countless successful companies, products, and dynamic business personalities, the judges are well positioned to objectively evaluate the entry pool to determine the top submissions. However, what truly sets Best in Biz Awards apart is that instead of being members of one editorial team of one particular publication, the judges hail from a wide variety of top-tier publications. From Associated Press to Yahoo Tech’s David Pogue – and including Businessweek, CNET, Consumer Affairs, Fast Company, Financial Times, Inc., Forbes, Fortune, Network World, PC Magazine, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Wired and more – Best in Biz Awards each year is judged by a who’s who of prominent reporters and editors from the most respected publications. Structured this way, the panel is even more independent and the scores and eventual results even more objective.

Waggl recently placed #15 on the San Francisco Business Times Fast 100 list and ranked 151 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the United States, with three-year revenue growth of 2482 percent, placing 26 within California-based companies, 19 within software companies, and 10 within San Francisco companies. The company was also named as “Employee Engagement Vendor of the Year” by the 2019 North American Employee Engagement Awards, recognized as a Top Workplace of 2019 by the Bay Area Newsgroup, and by San Francisco Business Times/Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work, earning the #2 ranking for wellness and the #10 spot for smallest companies.
