We are honored to share that WorkBoard is a 2021 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ award winner!
WorkBoard ranked No. 162 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America. Our company grew 829% over this period!
“Each year the Technology Fast 500™ shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silvergate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
Winners are ranked by their percentage of revenue growth over that three-year period. Overall, the 2021 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 212% to 87,037% over the three-year time frame, with a median growth rate of 521%. Among companies led by a woman, WorkBoard ranked the fastest growth company in Silicon Valley's Bay Area and 6th fastest on the Fast 500™ North America list.
WorkBoard CEO and co-founder Deidre Paknad credits the company’s 829% revenue growth to WorkBoard’s ability to meet customers' urgent need to align, measure and drive transformative strategies cohesively across a widely distributed workforce.
“Leaders face a trifecta of challenges now: Transform business models, adapt to rapid market changes, and purposefully engage distributed team members. It’s impractical to iterate rapidly on strategy and engage the organization in its achievement using pre-pandemic methods and tactics,” she says. “WorkBoard's proven solution provides a digital operating rhythm and rituals to align OKRs, simplify business reviews and scorecards, focus weeklies on outcomes, and leverage analytics at a time when virtually every company must accelerate the rhythm of business and operate as a digital enterprise.”
WorkBoard Chief Revenue Officer Abbie McBride says “We are thrilled to be recognized for fast year-over-year growth, particularly since half of our sales each year come from existing customers adopting WorkBoard more widely across their organizations.”
“It’s a privilege to help high growth companies like Zendesk, Zuora, Toast, Guild and others sustain their growth speed at increasing scale and enable high-scale customers like Walmart, 3M, Ford, IBM, AstraZeneca and others to increase their agility and speed.”
Now in its 27th year, Deloitte’s leading technology award honors the fastest growing public and private companies across the technology ecosystem. The program provides annual rankings in three regions to celebrate innovation and rapidly growing companies around the world.
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across healthcare, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500™ is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
We could not have said it better.
