Terakeet Named a Best Small/Medium Workplace by Great Place to Work® and Fortune


SYRACUSE, NY (October 16, 2020) — Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored Terakeet as one of the 2020 Best Small & Medium Workplaces™. The ranking is based on confidential survey feedback representing more than 189,000 employees working at small- and medium-sized businesses in the United States.

Great Place to Work®, a global people analytics and company culture research firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.

Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies that best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Terakeet took the 54th spot on the list among 100 medium-sized companies. This is the first time Terakeet has secured a spot on a national Fortune list. The last time they were recognized was in July 2020, when they were named in the top 5 Best Workplaces in New York State by Fortune and Great Place to Work®.

Lynn Fraas, Chief People Officer remarked, “The team here is really working to incorporate employee feedback into our workplace and hiring practices. To receive an award like this one on a national scale, specifically during one of the toughest years in recent memory is validation that we’re headed in the right direction, and that our people feel they have picked an award winning place to build their careers.”

She continued, “We are implementing specific programs geared towards increased flexibility for non-traditional career paths, as well as operationalizing a robust framework for diverse, equitable and inclusive hiring practices. We want Terakeet to be a workplace that supports all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.”

The Best Small & Medium Workplaces stand out for excelling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces.

“Best Workplaces like Terakeet have built dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces founded on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but also to do well for their businesses.”
