Cognella Named a Top Workplace by The San Diego Union-Tribune for the Fifth Consecutive Year

Academic publisher recognized for outstanding workplace culture

San Diego, CA – December 6, 2021 – Cognella has been awarded a 2021 Top Workplaces 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 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“I couldn’t be prouder that Cognella has been named a Top Workplace for the fifth consecutive year,” said Cognella Founder and CEO Bassim Hamadeh. “Though the Cognella team has faced a number of changes and challenges over the past year, we’ve also proven how powerful and resilient we can be when we work together, value what each individual member brings to the team, strive for innovation, and care deeply about each other. I’m grateful to work with an incredible group of people each and every day.”

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
