Fortune and Great Place to Work® Name Ontic One of the 2022 Best Small Workplaces™

August 8, 2022

Ranks 10th among small-sized companies nationally

AUSTIN, August 8, 2022 – Ontic, the protective intelligence software innovator, today announced it has been recognized as a 2022 Best Small Workplace by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work®, ranking 10th among the top 100 nationally recognized small workplaces (Ontic currently has 104 employees in the U.S., having grown 10.6% since this survey was taken in May.) 

“We are honored to be named a top 2022 Best Small Workplace,” said Lukas Quanstrom, CEO of Ontic. “At Ontic, living our mission of keeping people safe requires a culture of empathy and trust, and we are proud that our values and commitment to continue building this culture has helped us achieve this important recognition.” 

To determine the Best Small Workplaces list, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 30,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with 10 to 99 U.S. employees. In that survey, 99% of employees at Ontic said the company is a great place to work as compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are evaluated 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 then analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce makeup, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry.

“It’s not the size of an organization that makes it great, but how the organization treats its people,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “And these small workplaces have proven that the inspiring cultures they’ve created go head-to-head with those of any large corporation. Leaders at these companies put their people first, and in return, achieve stronger business results than the average workplace.”

In addition to being named a 2022 Best Small Workplaces, Ontic has been recognized as a Best Workplace in Texas for 2022 by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work, Built In Austin’s Best Places to Work (2022, 2021) and received Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces 2021 Award.
