OAKLAND, Calif. – January 14, 2021 – Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored Fivetran as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™.
The ranking considered more than 44,000 employee surveys from companies across the Bay Area. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job.
These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
“We’re proud to be acknowledged as a workplace leader in the Bay Area. Building a strong, people-first culture is one of our most important company values and something we work diligently to grow every day,” said Abdul Zedan, vice president of global people operations at Fivetran. “Now more than ever, fostering a strong, supportive environment for our employees and their families is paramount to our company’s success.”
The Best Workplaces in the Bay Area stand out for excelling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces. Within the past year, Fivetran created innovative ways for its team to stay connected and foster a positive, collaborative environment while employees work remotely.

About the Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™
Great Place to Work based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to confidential Trust Index™ survey responses from more than 44,000 Bay Area employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry and in the Bay Area.
The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.
To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard. To ensure companies had a sufficient Bay Area presence, a minimum of 10 people from the Bay Area needed to respond to the survey and at least 5% of the survey respondents at large companies and at least 20% in small and medium companies needed to be from the Bay Area. Companies with 10 to 999 people were considered for the small and medium category; companies with 1,000 employees or more were considered for the large category.
