BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - October 12, 2016) - Limeade, a corporate wellness technology company, was listed as one of Fortune's 2016 Best Small and Medium Workplaces, ranking #64 in the Best Medium Workplaces category. This is the second consecutive year Limeade was ranked as a Best Small and Medium Workplace by Fortune and Great Place to Work®. A summary of the results can be viewed on the company profile.
"At Limeade, our mission is to measurably improve well-being in the world, which means we must start with our own employees," said Dr. Laura Hamill, Limeade Chief People Officer and Research Director of the Limeade Institute.
"We know that 99 percent of employees with high well-being and organizational support say their employer is a 'great place to work.' We're continuously testing and trying out new things to bring our intentional culture to life. This not only makes Limeade a coveted and desirable place to work, but helps our teams be more productive and excited about working at Limeade."
Limeade won this accolade based on employees' anonymous responses to an extensive survey about levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
"There's a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces -- one that has a measurable return," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. "Whether it's funding employee 'passion projects' or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue."

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces:
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all -- not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
