Overall ranking: #8
Name: Rackspace Technology
Organisation size: Enterprise
Strongest award element: Culture
Rackspace Technology embrace engagement opportunities to empower their community to deliver on internal, and external goals.
A small insight into this Inspiring Workplace…
‘Our organization’s purpose is to empower the world’s inspiring missions. We deliver on this by rallying around our company’s
mission: embrace technology, empower customers, and deliver the future.
This sense of purpose is deeply embedded in our culture. It starts on day one as our employees (whom we call Rackers) learn about our employee value proposition, which states that “Rackers are valued members of a winning team on an inspiring mission.”
And it comes to life through the Fanatical Experience™ we provide to our customers — whether internal or external, the Racker Experience we build through communications and programs, and the ways we recognize and reward Rackers for living our Core Values and business priorities.
To help Rackers realize their own inspiring missions, we invest in Racker careers and growth through robust, comprehensive technical certification programs. We encourage Rackers to invest at least 52 hours every year on intentional growth and learning.
We focus the third Thursday of every month on innovation, inviting Rackers to spend time away from meetings to explore new, creative approaches to work and customer problems. We give Rackers at least 40 hours of paid time off per year to invest in community organizations and causes they care about.
These efforts are recognized and appreciated by Rackers, as Rackers understanding of how their work contributes to achieving
Rackspace Technology’s goals (Contribution) and belief that the work they do is meaningful (Purpose) both scored in the top five categories on our most recent Employee Engagement survey.’
