O’Reilly Named to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces List for 2023

May 9, 2023

SaaS-based online training and learning provider achieves pinnacle recognition for exceptional workplace culture among American businesses

BOSTON—May 9, 2023O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced it has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. One of the most prestigious national workplace recognition programs, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility.

”Engaged, motivated, and fulfilled employees aren’t just nice to have—they are absolutely vital to business success,” said O’Reilly CPO Jeanne Cordisco. ”At O’Reilly, we’re proud to put our people first and prioritize creating an environment where meaningful work that drives genuine impact can take place.”

Cordisco explained, ”Our learning platform is built on cutting-edge business and technology knowledge, which we equip our employees with and encourage them to apply in their job. This empowers teams to challenge the status quo and make valuable contributions to O’Reilly’s growth and continued evolution. This emphasis on valuing individual skills, talents, and traits is how we've remained an innovative and evolving organization for over four decades.”

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 591 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

”Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim,” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. ”Proving to the world that you’re a magnet for talent and have a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement.”

True innovation relies on engaging with individuals from diverse backgrounds and fostering an inclusive work culture. To achieve this environment, O'Reilly has set ambitious corporate goals to boost diversity within its workforce, resulting in 66% of new hires in 2022 coming from underrepresented groups. Additionally, women make up 45% of its current employees.

”Tech has a diversity problem, and at O’Reilly we are committed to doing our part to mitigate that. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it makes us better,” said Cordisco.

Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces list will be featured in the May/June 2023 issue, hitting newsstands on May 16, 2023, and will also be prominently featured on Inc.com.
