Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that Fortune and Great Place to Work have honored the company as one of the 2022 100 Best Companies to Work For. This is Cadence’s eighth year in a row being named to this prestigious list, coming in at #38 this year. Cadence is recognized as one of the best companies to work for thanks to its outstanding people-first culture, history of delivering essential technology innovation and adaptive, inspired leadership.
The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® award is based on an analysis of survey responses from more than 4.5 million current U.S. employees. In that survey, 91% of Cadence employees said Cadence is a great place to work, and 93% said they are proud to tell others they work there.
Anirudh Devgan, president and CEO of Cadence, said, "Maintaining a high-performing and inclusive culture is a top priority at Cadence. This culture allows our employees to do meaningful work in a supportive environment tackling some of the industry's hardest design and technology challenges. It's an honor to be recognized for the eighth year in a row as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, and this is truly a testament to our One Cadence—One Team culture. I want to thank our employees for their unwavering commitment to our customers, fellow employees, and broader communities."
“Best Companies’ leadership has never been more necessary,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “As workers struggle with the Great Resignation, burnout and COVID-19 disruptions, these exceptional companies offer workplace experiences as strong as prior to the pandemic. These companies get that 'place' is wherever their employees are sitting or standing, and they are committed to make that place equitable, safe and productive. Their commitment to genuinely care for their people through trust, inclusion, purpose and meaningful flexibility for life circumstances goes beyond surface-level perks and is a model for the market to follow.”
The Fortune 100 Best list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
Cadence has been recognized as a 2021 World’s Best Workplace and a Great Place to Work in a number of regions around the world including Asia (overall), Brazil (Minas Gerais), Canada, Europe (overall), France, Germany, Greater China, India, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Singapore, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
An attorney at DesignCon? I wasn’t sure I heard that right either, but it’s true. I sat down for an interview with international trade lawyer James Kim of ArentFox Schiff LLP. James was at the show to present a session entitled “Chips, Batteries & Charging Stations,” which highlights the Biden administration’s steps to secure the supply chain for the EV industry. James gave me a quick primer on international tariffs and trade laws, and much more.
Every year or so, I like to chat with my friend, M&A expert Tom Kastner of GP Ventures. I know he has been busy the past few years, so I was anxious to find out more about it. He is the one person I know who really has his finger on the pulse of the industry. Tom has always been a great source of information for me and the industry as a whole.
It’s a well-known fact that if your company is not growing and moving forward every single day, it is dying. The same rule applies to technology companies: To stay alive, you must grow your technology by keeping up with your customers’ product technology needs. Too many printed circuit board fabricators are dying a slow death because they are not willing or able to invest the time, energy, money, and passion to always work on their technology.
When it comes to business-to-business (B2B) customer service, it is often the little things that matter. While many companies focus on the big things, they ignore the little "softer things" that really create a great customer experience. I truly believe that the higher the technology a company produces, the lousier its customer service. It's as if those companies producing the highest tech products feel they deserve a pass for the easier, always important but more mundane, aspects of customer service.
