Veracyte Named a San Francisco Bay Area “Top Workplace” For Sixth Consecutive Year

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Veracyte, Inc. (VCYT), a leading genomic diagnostics company, announced today that the company has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by the Bay Area News Group for the sixth consecutive year. The annual award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous, third-party survey.

“I am so proud of our more than 300 employees and their contributions in creating and sustaining a positive culture at Veracyte, especially as we’ve grown and commercialized five products since our founding in 2008,” said Bonnie Anderson, Veracyte’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Being one of very few companies to receive this prestigious award six years in a row is an honor and reflects our employees’ dedication and commitment to improving the lives of patients and to each other.”

The Top Workplaces award winners are determined by results of a survey administered by Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based engagement tools. The survey measures several key aspects of workplace culture, including organizational alignment, effective execution and meaningful connection with employees.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, chief executive officer of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

The Bay Area News Group published the complete list of 2019 Top Workplaces on Sunday, June 23. The list of winners is available at the Bay Area News Group website.
