For the Seventh Consecutive Year, Cognella Named Top Workplace by The San Diego Union-Tribune

Academic publisher recognized for outstanding company culture 

San Diego, CA – December 11, 2023 – For the seventh 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 uniquely measures 15 cultural drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“Within the past few years, Cognella has transitioned to a hybrid workplace, added to our team, and initiated new and exciting strategic initiatives within the academic publishing space,” said Cognella Founder and CEO Bassim Hamadeh. “Throughout it all, our company culture has remained strong. It isn’t an exaggeration to say it’s been the bedrock of our success. I couldn’t be prouder to work with an experienced group of professionals who trust and care about each other and bring their very best to work each and every day.”

“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.”
