Cognella Named a Top Workplace for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Academic publisher honored for exceptional workplace culture

San Diego, CA – November 16, 2020 – Cognella has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Top Workplace in San Diego for the fourth consecutive year, especially in the face of constant change and new challenges,” said Bassim Hamadeh, founder and CEO of Cognella. “This year has proven that the team at Cognella is something special. We’ve come together like never before to support our company mission, remained flexible, put innovation first, and most importantly, never let our support of students, authors, instructors, and the greater academic community falter. I couldn’t be prouder of the exemplary, resilient, and fun-loving culture we’ve all built together at Cognella. Congratulations to the whole team.”

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
