Lattice Ranks #47 on the PEOPLE and Great Place to Work® Companies that Care®

Excited to announce another award win for the year that is especially close to our hearts: Great Place to Work and PEOPLE magazine have named Lattice as one of the 2022 PEOPLE Companies that Care! Each year, this list recognizes Great Place to Work® certified companies who stand out for how they support not only their employees but their surrounding communities as well.

Lattice has been committed to giving back to our community from our founding, with a focus on initiatives and organizations that center on diversity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace and the world. The heart of our volunteering efforts as a company is LOVE (Lattice Opportunities for Volunteering and Education), an ERG formed in 2020 and committed to investing in our communities through volunteering to drive education, environmental stability, diversity and inclusion, and more. 

Since 2019, Lattice has donated over $216K in funds and free use of our product, supporting organizations including The Innocence Project, the NAACP, Equal Justice Initiative, the Hispanic Federation, and the Asian Pacific Fund, among others. Last year, Lattice as an organization donated over $18K as part of campaigns around Black History Month, Pride Month, Asian-American History Month, and Hispanic Heritage Month through company matching donations and ERG-led efforts. We also encouraged our customer community to contribute by providing donation incentives in return for completing surveys or participating in feedback sessions.

The Companies that Care award is based on over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees.

“At Lattice, volunteer work and giving back to the community is another way we put our beliefs and values into action as a company,” said Jamie Edwards, Global Workplace Experience Manager at Lattice. “And all of our volunteering efforts are tied closely to our employee ERGs groups and LOVE, so that the causes we support are meaningful to our people and really bring our global Lattice community together. In our new remote-forward world, we’re also increasingly focused on meeting our employees where they are – seeking out digital volunteer opportunities like online donation drives to be inclusive of Latticians wherever they’re working from.”

“Caring isn’t about being ‘nice,’” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s about understanding the real needs of your people, of your community and of the world—and showing up in ways that make a meaningful impact. These companies make that kind of caring for people, and even the environment, part of their daily fabric.”

Really, this award belongs to the Latticians who spearhead our volunteer efforts every day and dedicate their time and energy to give back to their communities – and we are so proud to support them in these efforts.

“As I’ve been working in tech over the last several years, I’ve learned that everyone has a set of company values. These values are usually listed on the company’s site, accompanied by great graphics- and they’re fantastic to read,” shares Kathleen Nolan-Raygoza, a recruiter here at Lattice. “However, very few companies actually dedicate time and resources to live them out, or give their employees the means to do so. Lattice truly cares about the world beyond itself. While our mission is to make work meaningful for everyone, I think a real overarching theme of working here is “be a good human, and leave it better than you found it”. I’m so thrilled to be a part of LOVE, where I can find opportunities to volunteer, get involved with causes that matter to me, and to bond with my coworkers through a shared commitment to community service!”

Lattice Makes Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the 3rd Year In a Row

We’re excited to announce that today, Lattice was named to Inc. Magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing, privately-owned companies in America for the third time, ranking 613 overall (#95 in California and #72 in Software).

This annual list represents the top .007% of companies in terms of overall business growth, and in a time of global challenges – the ongoing pandemic, supply chain issues, social and labor unrest, inflation, to name just a few – we are extremely proud of the hard work our team has done to keep Lattice growing and successful.

“The past couple of years have been incredibly volatile, and we’ve undergone a major transition from in-office to remote and hybrid work. The result is that the relationship between employees and companies has meaningfully changed, and businesses need to adopt modern, people-centric approaches to the way they do management,” said Jack Altman, CEO and co-founder of Lattice. “We’re so thrilled to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 again this year as a testament not just to our business growth, but to the critical importance of what we empower our customers to do every day: Build cultures designed around people success.” 

The Inc. 5000 is an annual review of private American companies and represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. A number of industry-defining brands including Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many others gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

This honor comes on the heels of Lattice making the Forbes Cloud 100 for the first time, along with other culture- and growth-focused accolades including ranking highly on Great Place to Work and Fortune’s Best Workplaces, Best Workplaces in the Bay Area, and Best Workplaces for Millennials lists.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.” 

To earn a spot on the competitive list, a company must be US-based, privately held, and bring in a minimum annual revenue of $2M or more. Growth is measured in terms of revenue and employee growth – and as the HR sector has become more crowded and employee expectations around what makes up a people-centric culture continue to rise, Lattice’s continued success required dedication, collaboration, and alignment of the entire team behind a shared goal: making work meaningful. 

Lattice has had a significant year of momentum ahead of this exciting recognition: As of July, Lattice serves over 4,500 customers and has more than doubled its headcount from this time last year. Lattice closed out 2021 reporting over 110% year-over-year ARR growth, and in January 2022, the company closed its Series F fundraising round at $175 million led by Tiger Global, bringing the company valuation to more than $3 billion. 

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including methodology, company profiles, and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc.

Welcoming Lexi Reese To Lattice’s Board

I am absolutely thrilled to announce today that Lexi Reese, who was most recently COO of Gusto, is joining Lattice’s Board of Directors. Before Gusto, Lexi was an executive at Google, Facebook, and Amex.

Lexi brings an incredible range of experiences to Lattice. Besides what you can see on paper, one of the notable things about Lexi is how structured a thinker and leader she is. She truly has a battle-tested framework for everything, a well-thought-out point of view, a relevant slide, a poignant article. Speaking personally as someone who tends to be a little bit more spontaneous in my decision-making, I feel grateful to be supported by someone like Lexi who has such depth of experience of structure of thought.

More importantly than any particular set of experiences, Lexi has an outlook on the world that I know will help us further our mission to make work meaningful. She cares deeply about the human side of work, which came through in every conversation we’ve had.

She’s also very committed to the ideas of performance and personal growth. I knew we had a match when she told me that she wanted to have a performance review plan for herself and all board members going forward. Music to my ears!

Lattice was founded on the idea that people-centric leadership is the key not only to happier employees, but more successful companies. Lexi has lived and breathed this philosophy at some of the best organizations in the world, and I’m so grateful to have her leadership on our board as Lattice enters its next stage of growth.

Lattice Recognized on the Forbes Cloud 100 for 2022

We’re thrilled to announce that Lattice has made the annual Forbes Cloud 100 for the first time this year, ranking #62 on this definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world. The list is published each year by Forbes in a partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized on the Forbes Cloud 100 List for the first time this year. It’s a huge testament to the scale of the opportunity and to all the hard work our team has put into building our products and culture,” said Jack Altman, CEO and co-cofounder of Lattice. “We believe the future will be led by companies who prioritize people success, and we’re thrilled to be building a platform to help companies put their employees first. We’re grateful for all the growth we’ve had from customers who believe the same thing, and we’re excited to work hard to keep scaling with them.”

To develop the final list, the Cloud 100 team reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership, estimated valuation, operating metrics, and people & culture. For the market leadership section, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers. Highlights from this year’s list will also appear in the August/September 2022 issue of Forbes magazine.

Lattice has had a significant year of momentum ahead of this exciting recognition: As of this summer, the company serves over 4,500 customers and has more than doubled its headcount from this time last year. Exiting the fourth quarter of 2021, Lattice reported over 110% year-over-year ARR growth and increased our customer base by more than 40%, including Calm, Imperfect Foods, and Article. In March of 2021, Lattice closed its Series E fundraising round, bringing the company to unicorn status, and less than 10 months later in January 2022, Lattice closed its Series F fundraising round at $175 million led by Tiger Global, bringing the company valuation to more than $3 billion. 

Lattice has also recently received accolades for its culture and teams despite a tumultuous year: The company was profiled as one of Inc’s Best Places to Work, received Stevie Awards for excellence in Sales and Customer Service, and was ranked by Great Place to Work and Fortune as the #1 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area, the #2 Best Workplaces for Millennials and #4 on the overall Best Medium Workplaces national list. 

More in the words of the team behind this year’s list…

“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this fast-growing sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes. “Every year, it gets more difficult to make this list — meaning even more elite company for those who do.”

“The public markets may be in turmoil, but the private valuations of the Cloud 100 continue to rise. All of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees, again, have reached the $1 billion valuation milestone, and the average Cloud 100 valuation has skyrocketed to $7.4 billion,” said Mary D’Onofrio, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Despite the market correction in 2022, our confidence in the cloud economy continues to grow—today over 70% of the 2022 Cloud 100 Honorees have reached or exceeded $100 million in annual recurring revenue making them cloud Centaurs. An additional 10% of the list is expected to hit this milestone by the end of the year, furthering our conviction that this years’ honorees truly represent the best cloud companies globally.”

“Great companies are born out of all environments, and it’s exciting to see the continued momentum in the cloud sector,” said Alex Kayyal, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. ”The companies on this list have gone through a rigorous selection process, and join an esteemed alumni list of Cloud 100 companies. As the need for digital transformation continues to drive innovation and efficiencies across industries, we can look to these companies as the absolute best in cloud computing.”

Latticed Ranks #4 On National List of Best Workplaces from Fortune and Great Place to Work® 

Lattice’s mission is to make work meaningful, and that extends to our own culture. That’s why we’re so thrilled to announce that Great Place to Work® has honored Lattice with a place on their national list of Best Medium Workplaces!

Ranking #4 on this list of companies around the country who strive to be cultural leaders underscores our people-centric approach, and we are so excited to be considered one of the best workplaces in the country: As part of our Great Place to Work Certification™, 99% of employees say Lattice is a great place to work.

To determine the Best Medium Workplaces list, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 200,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with 100 to 999 U.S. employees. 

“We recognize that as much as our culture comes from our mission, values, and benefits, it is also built and strengthened every day by our employees,” said Cara Brennan Allamano, CPO at Lattice. “Especially for a company like Lattice, where we have grown and evolved so much in the last year. I’m grateful to the Latticians who continue to consistently make this such a great place to work – this recognition really belongs to all of them.”

Lattice is continuously evaluating new ways to take care of its people and build a culture where employees are supported and empowered. In the last year, the company has rolled out 401K matching, expanded parental leave benefits, leased new office space in New York, provided financial advisory services to all employees, and expanded WFH and grocery/food stipends across the business, among other changes as the company scales and the needs of employees continue to evolve. 

The Best Medium Workplaces list is highly competitive: Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm Great Place to Work® to determine the list using their proprietary For All methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, based on over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million employees this year alone.

“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 medium 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.”

So far in 2022, Lattice has ranked highly as a Best Workplace for Millennials™ and was ranked #1 on the list of Best Workplaces in the Bay Area™.
