Reston, Va. — Great Place To Work® and Fortune magazine have selected Public Interest Registry (PIR) for the 2023 Fortune Best Small Workplaces™ List. This is PIR’s first time being named to this prestigious list. Earning a spot means that Public Interest Registry is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
“It’s a great honor to be named one of Fortune’s 2023 Best Small Workplaces,” says President and CEO Jon Nevett. “Everyday the PIR team goes above and beyond to provide a stable online platform for mission-driven organizations and individuals around the world to do incredible work. We celebrate them for their unwavering commitment to PIR’s culture of excellence.”
The Best Small Workplaces list is highly competitive. To determine the Best Small Workplaces list, Great Place To Work analyzed the survey responses of over 32,000 employees from Great Place To Work Certified™ companies with 10 to 99 U.S. employees.
Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifier.
“Any organization can be great, no matter the size of their payroll or the size of their bottom line,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “These remarkable companies know that the high-trust culture they’ve built can
compete with companies of any size.”
Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell says, “Fortune congratulates the companies on the 2023 Best Small Workplaces List, whose business practices prove that it doesn’t take a big headcount to make a big impact.
