12 January 2021, San Francisco: For the first time, Granular, a subsidiary of Corteva Agriscience, has been named one of the best places to work in the San Francisco Bay Area by Built In.
Granular, the world’s leading farm management software platform, received the 2021 Best Places to Work and Best Midsize Companies to Work For by Built In this week thanks to its innovative approach to the industry (agriculture), company culture and benefits, and growth opportunities for its employees.
The annual awards include companies of all sizes, from startups to the enterprise, in the eight largest tech markets and nationally.
Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and cultural programs. To reflect the attributes candidates are searching for on Built In today, this year’s program weighted criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity and inclusion.
“We are proud to receive this award in a region that’s as competitive as the Bay Area,” said Jennifer Trendler, Vice President of Human Resources at Granular. “Our employees and their talent are Granular’s greatest asset. Throughout an incredibly challenging 2020, our priority was to ensure our team could succeed and thrive, feel supported, and continue driving our mission forward to put technology in farmers’ hands to help them run stronger businesses.”
Throughout 2020, Granular introduced a number of innovative programs to foster teamwork, family time and keep employees engaged while working remotely. New initiatives included ‘Granular Supports You,’ an initiative designed to ensure all employees felt supported mentally and physically throughout the pandemic, Recharge Wednesdays, employee care packages to replicate the in-office experience, and virtual events designed for both employees and their families.
“We know Granular is a special place to work with best-in-class talent, and our team is solving some really important challenges facing farmers today,” said Tamar Rosati, CEO of Granular and President of Corteva Agriscience Digital Business Platform. “We’re thrilled Built In recognized our team and our culture, and are honored to be a Best Place to Work alongside some of the most forward-thinking companies in the country. The Granular team is driven by our mission, and with that commitment comes building a team of happy and innovative people to work with our farmer customers. These honors are really a testament to our team and the positive environment they foster for one another.”
