Fortune and Great Place to Work Name Cadence One of the World’s Best Workplaces in 2022October 14, 2022 | Business Wire
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work® have honored the company, ranking it #19 on the 2022 World’s Best Workplaces™ list. These 25 global leaders were selected from organizations that participated in Great Place to Work’s employee survey process, representing the voices of 14.8 million employees worldwide. The 25 World’s Best Workplaces stood out for creating globally exceptional employee experiences, high-trust relationships and workplaces that are fair and equal for all.
Dr. Anirudh Devgan, president and CEO of Cadence, said, “It’s an honor that Cadence is being recognized as a World’s Best Workplace for the seventh year in a row. This award is a testament to our employees’ commitment to excellence and our One Team culture. Over the past year, we have enhanced our positive impact on the global community by creating the Cadence Giving Foundation and aligning the company behind our aggressive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. I want to thank every employee for their determination to accelerate innovation and exceed our customers’ expectations, to support our communities and to celebrate diversity.”
“For companies with a global workforce, achieving a consistent experience for every employee is exponentially more difficult—and impressive,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Despite the many challenges facing global businesses in 2022, these companies have put the well-being of their people first. Their success is proof positive that when companies do right by their employees, no problem is too great to overcome.”
The Fortune World’s Best Workplaces 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.
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in the world that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on their ability to create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status or any aspect of employee identity or job role.
In 2022, Cadence also ranked as a Great Place to Work in France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom, as well as in the United States, where the company was named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. Cadence also achieved regional recognitions as a Best Workplace in Asia and a Best Workplace in Europe.
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.
New Report Suggests India Can Expand Role in Global Semiconductor Value Chains with the Right Policies02/14/2024 | SIA
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) and the India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) today welcomed the release of a report evaluating India’s existing semiconductor ecosystem and policy frameworks and offering recommendations to facilitate longer-term strategic development of complementary semiconductor ecosystems in the U.S. and India.
What often surprises me when working with contract manufacturers (CMs) is that many of them, especially the ones earning less than $25 million a year, have not done much planning for more business and their futures. I’ve realized that many started to build a specific sub-assembly as offshoots of a larger company.
I’m writing this in Santa Clara, California on the last day of DesignCon. It was nice to get out of Atlanta, which was 28 degrees when I left. It’s a little rainy here, but it’s been in the 60s all week, and I’ll take that kind of weather any day. In this week’s must-reads, we have a little bit of everything, including sad news about the passing of our columnist Michael Ford. Everyone who knew him just loved the guy.
My first semester of college included a course on engineering fundamentals that focused on teamwork, problem-solving, ethics, and, of course, coding. I had no experience in coding. In fact, downloading the program to my laptop alone almost required visiting the IT department. This class was my second course on my first day of school. Shortly after the introductory speeches, we were asked to write a “simple” code that output the phrase, “Hello World.” Instant panic sets in as my other three team members started typing away. Was I supposed to have learned this in high school?
