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

Academic publisher recognized for outstanding workplace culture 

San Diego, CA – November 21, 2022 – For the sixth consecutive year, Cognella has received a Top Workplace designation by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The list of award-winning workplaces is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey sent to employees uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“Cognella has an incredible culture that we’ve all built together, something of which we are all very proud,” said Cognella Founder and CEO Bassim Hamadeh. “It’s not easy to build and maintain a strong sense of connection with a now primarily remote workforce. Regardless from where we work, we do our best to maintain a collaborative work style, make sure everyone has a voice at the table, and live true to our unique mantra of brains plus heart to propel us forward. It’s very special to receive continued public recognition for the passion that we exhibit every day at Cognella, something that is so integral to who we are. I’m both proud and humbled we’ve been awarded a Top Workplaces designation for the sixth consecutive year.”

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
