Return Path Named to Crain’s New York Business’ Best Places to Work for Third Consecutive Year

Employees cite culture of transparency, open communication as top reasons for company’s ranking.

NEW YORK – December 16, 2014 – Return Path today announced that the company has again been named one of the best places to work in New York City by Crain’s New York Business. The annual compilation ranks Return Path #24 on its list of the city’s 100 best workplaces, based on an anonymous employee survey conducted with the Human Resource Association of New York, the Society of Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. This marks Return Path’s second major employer award in 2014: In September FORTUNE magazine ranked the company its #2 medium-size company to work for in the U.S.

Crain’s cited Return Path’s commitment to maintaining a culture of transparency as a key reason for the company’s ranking. Anonymous employee feedback, on which the Crain’s program is based, praised Return Path CEO Matt Blumberg for openly sharing minutes and notes from quarterly board meetings. All Return Path employees also see regular reports on revenue and sales pipeline vs. budget, product roadmap initiatives, and updates on funding – including the company’s recent $35 million investment led by Vista Equity Partners. Founded 15 years ago this month in New York, Return Path has grown into a global company with offices in London, Paris, Hamburg, Sydney, and Sao Paulo, and more than 400 employees worldwide.

“As a New York-based company it’s especially gratifying to win this honor once again from Crain’s. We compete for talent with some of the best companies in the world here, and to consistently rank among the top employer brands in New York shows that Return Path’s focus on creating a winning culture is paying off,” said Matt Blumberg, CEO. “We are committed to living our values, and nothing is more important to our success than building a people-first organization. Our employees know they’re trusted and empowered to drive results, and that translates into high performance and great results for our clients and our investors.”

In addition to appearing on the Crain’s New York Business list for the past three years, Return Path has been nationally ranked by FORTUNE magazine as a Great Place to Work for three consecutive years and by ColoradoBiz magazine as one of Colorado’s best places to work for five consecutive years.
