These days, finding work is a full-time job for thousands of struggling Central Texans. Some of those people might want to check out 10 employers from the Austin area that were just named among the country’s best workplaces.
On May 5, Inc. magazine revealed the 395 employers in the U.S. that made its 2020 list of the best workplaces. In all, 30 employers in Texas ranked among the country’s top workplaces.
To develop the ranking, Omaha, Nebraska-based Quantum Workplace surveyed employees from more than 3,000 companies in the U.S. on topics such as trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Quantum based the final list on a composite score of survey results.
Austin employers that appear on the 2020 list are:
- 9Gauge Partners, a business management consulting firm
- Abilitie, a provider of simulation-based learning tools
- AlertMedia, a provider of emergency notification software
- AllPro Hospitality Staffing, a staffing service for hotels and caterers
- OJO Labs, a maker of AI-powered software for homebuyers and home sellers
- Personiv, an outsourcing company
- Pushnami, a provider of digital marketing software
- SourceDay, a maker of supply chain management software

Round Rock-based Jacaruso Enterprises also showed up in the ranking. It offers sales training, technology, and consulting for hotels.
David Lesniak, CEO of Personiv, says people are the company’s most important asset.
“When it comes to the core cultural pillars here at Personiv, taking care of our people is key to the way we work and the exceptional quality we provide to our customers,” Lesniak says in a release.
Pushnami CEO Emerson Smith credits his company’s Inc. ranking to a focus on acceptance, positivity, and people over profit.
“There is no doubt that our team is at the core of Pushnami’s success. It’s wonderful to be recognized by Inc. for our commitment to our culture,” Smith says in a release. “This is particularly meaningful as this acknowledgment comes from feedback by our own employees — who are the heart and soul of what makes Pushnami unique.”
