CIENCE Achieves Great Place to Work® Certification™ by Employees

Based on CIENCE employee feedback on the Trust Index® Survey, CIENCE has been recognized as a Great Place to Work®-Certified company. This award validates how the CIENCE employee experiences have built a great workplace culture. 

This year, 97% of employees participating in the survey said the company is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. 

“It is a great honor to be certified as a Great Place to Work by our employees,” said Cindy Sanborn, Head of U.S. Human Resources at CIENCE. “It is our privilege to continue to provide a culture that allows our employees to be acknowledged, celebrated, and grow. We appreciate them every day! The leadership team could not be more proud.“ 

Company Culture at CIENCE

The achievement was based entirely on what employees revealed about their experience working at CIENCE and how consistently they encounter a high-trust work environment. At least 65% (7 out of 10) of a company's current employees must state that it’s a great workplace—CIENCE well-exceeded this average. 

The survey was measured by a sixty core Trust Index® that compares CIENCE employees’ comments to responses from the best workplaces in the country. The results came from a detailed understanding of the employee experience, organizational strengths, and opportunity areas. 

“We are delighted CIENCE is recognized as a great place to work. Our people are the heart of our workplace,” said Michele Crocker, Chief Operating Officer at CIENCE. “We are committed to their ongoing development and our team members are empowered to own their growth. Our strong leadership team lives and acts on our core values to ensure CIENCE continues to be the employer of choice. We are truly grateful to our amazing, talented, and engaged people.” 

CIENCE received tops marks in areas of leadership, innovation, and engagement, aligned with its core values that have built trust with its employees.
