The certification from the Great Place to Work Institute recognizes Renaissance’s culture of continuous improvement and ongoing DEI efforts
BLOOMINGTON, MINN. (May 25, 2023) – Renaissance, a leader in pre-K–12 education technology, announces that the company has been recognized as a 2023 Great Place to Work by the Great Place to Work Institute. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experiences working at Renaissance. Overall, 90 percent of employees said Renaissance is a great place to work—33 points higher than the average U.S.-based company.
“At Renaissance, we recognize that to accelerate learning for all students, we need to build a company culture that supports all employees,” said Kim Mitchell, Chief People Officer at Renaissance. “Each one of our employees plays a crucial role in helping us support educators all over the world. We put people first—and it is incredibly rewarding to hear those efforts resonate across our team of more than 2,000 employees.”
The Great Place to Work Certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience. Certification is a two-step process that includes surveying employees and completing a short questionnaire. Because anonymous employee feedback and independent analysis determine the scores, certification helps job seekers identify which companies genuinely offer a great company culture.
“Each one of our employees makes us who we are as a company,” said Chris Bauleke, Chief Executive Officer at Renaissance. “Renaissance has seen tremendous growth over the years, and our employees remain at the center of what we do. The recognition from the Great Places to Work Institute is a direct reflection of that.”
Recognizing the company’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), 94 percent of Renaissance employees shared that when they joined the team, they felt welcome.
In addition, Renaissance employees shared:
- Leaders at Renaissance are understanding, with 95 percent of employees noting that they can take time off work when it’s necessary.
- The company empowers employees to do their best work—92 percent of employees shared that people are given a lot of responsibility.
- Renaissance is a mission-driven organization. Ninety-two percent of employees feel proud to tell their friends and families they work for Renaissance.
“The Great Place to Work Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Renaissance stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees.”
Renaissance continues to prioritize the importance of DEI in its culture, work, and products. From Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to providing training to all employees on topics such as managing unconscious bias and addressing microaggressions, Renaissance is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace where ongoing evaluation, accountability, and action are woven into every corner of the company’s culture—creating an environment where employees grow and evolve together.
