Stok Makes Inc. Magazine’s 2023 Best Workplaces List

San Francisco, CA (May 9, 2023) — Stok has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list! 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, virtual, or hybrid capacity. 

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

“When we created Stok, we set out with the strategic goal of creating a space for our team members to align their passions and strengths to ultimately make their work feel like play,” said Burke Pemberton, Chief Financial Officer at Stok. “A Best Place to Work recognition was the benchmark we chose to strive for to measure success towards that goal, so achieving it is an incredible honor.” 

Stok team members are passionate about the company’s purpose and take pride in being a people- and culture-driven organization; this is why a focus on Culture is Stok’s number one priority. The Inc. Best Workplaces list offered an opportunity to measure Stok’s team member experience and benchmark it against peer organizations. Through this process, Stok identified key priorities to build a best-in-class, self-managed culture that energizes the company’s vision and truly deserves recognition. These culture promises are grounded in Stok’s commitment to flexibility, connection, recognition, and growth. 

“We are thrilled to validate something that we’ve believed in for so long – that Stok is a best place to work,” said Jacob Arlein, CEO of Stok. “We’re excited to celebrate this significant milestone in our company culture, and have every member of the Stok team to thank for their role in shaping what it feels like to be part of this company every day.” 

“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.”
