Return Path Ranked No. 2 on FORTUNE Magazine’s “25 Best Medium-Size Companies to Work For” List

Marketing analytics company applauded for balancing rapid growth and family friendly policies

New York — Sep. 18, 2014 — Return Path today announced that it has been ranked No. 2 on FORTUNE Magazine’s “25 Best Medium-Size Companies to Work For” list. The company’s capacity to maintain a highly transparent operating system and a flexible, people-first culture during a period of accelerating growth and expansion was cited atop a number of reasons for its inclusion on the 2014 list. This is Return Path’s third consecutive appearance on the FORTUNE list, and a climb from its #4 ranking in 2013.

“Return Path was built on the idea that giving people an environment where they can manage their lives and work the way they want to will free them to achieve extraordinary things. We face a constant challenge to recruit employees to support our growth, and our ability to find exceptional people and deliver great results is a testament to that founding principle,” said Matt Blumberg, CEO of Return Path. “How you treat people matters. Beyond the perks and the policies, we succeed by making sure that every single one of our 400-plus employees around the world has the information he or she needs to feel included and involved in every major decision we make – to think like an owner.”

FORTUNE also noted Return Path’s support for local volunteerism, offering paid time off to allow employees to contribute to charity events and projects wherever the company has an office. As an example, employees cited the company’s response to severe flooding in Colorado’s Boulder County. The company immediately declared volunteer days, encouraging its entire area workforce to contribute to the effort as paid time off. Return Path’s annual Dream Fund — an employee-directed grant to support local charities — was allocated toward clean-up efforts, too.

Return Path is headquartered in New York City with offices in Broomfield, CO, Austin, TX, and Sunnyvale, CA. The company is currently recruiting for positions in sales and business development, client services and account management, and technology and operations teams. For more information visit

About FORTUNE’s 50 Best Small and Medium-Size Companies to Work For

To pick the 50 Best Small and Medium-Size Companies to Work For (25 Best Small Workplaces and 25 Best Medium Workplaces), FORTUNE partners with the Great Rated! and the Great Place to Work ® Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. More than 10 million employees at participating companies responded to a survey created by the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The remainder of the score is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. The list and related stories will appear in the September 22, 2014 print edition of FORTUNE Magazine, and are available now at:
