We have exciting news to share: Actian has been named a finalist in two categories for Tech in Motion’s 8th Annual Timmy Awards! We’ve been selected as top contenders in both the “Best Tech Enterprise Employer” and “Best Tech Work Culture” categories.

Since the Timmy Awards launched in 2015, their mission has been to celebrate the best places for tech professionals to work. Today, the Timmy’s honor excellence across six best-in-tech award categories: best tech startup, manager, work culture, enterprise employer, workplace for diversity, and tech for good. The program has become a highly sought-after recognition for companies of all sizes, celebrating the continual evolution of the technology industry and the gold standard for employee experience.

The “Best Tech Work Culture” award is claimed by companies that successfully uncover employee potential through community and shared mission. These companies also inspire high-performance levels and recognize valuable contributions at every level. Recipients boast an exemplary tech work culture – across office, in-person, and hybrid – that encourages diversity, inclusivity, technical creativity, learning and meaningful recognition. One of Actian’s initiatives that displays our unique and truly special culture – and helped us stand out from the competition – is our IMPACTIAN program. We kicked off IMPACTIAN earlier this year to drive impact at Actian and beyond, focusing on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and doing good in our communities. We are specifically committed to improving food security as well as climate sustainability.

Additionally, the “Best Tech Enterprise Employer” award celebrates enterprise-level employers that foster technological growth, inclusion, and invention at all levels. This may be demonstrated through a high volume of hires, top notch employer satisfaction ratings, impressive employee retention levels, or unanimous leadership approval. Key to each top contestant of this award is that employers go above and beyond to engage their employees. Our IMPACTIAN initiative once again set us apart from other companies in this category. The program emphasizes our commitment to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and our passion to train others in these areas. This serves as a testament to our prioritization of using innovative technology, encouraging professional growth and creative thinking, and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

We are incredibly honored and thrilled to be named finalists in multiple categories and to take part in this wonderful program recognizing technological innovation, work environments that value employees and their satisfaction levels, and organizations emphasizing corporate social responsibility. We couldn’t do it without our fearless leadership team and dedicated employees, who all make up Actian’s encouraging, inclusive, diverse, one-of-a-kind culture.

The finalists of the Timmy Awards will be reviewed by a panel of judges this Fall and winners will be announced on November 10. Follow along with us as we await the results of the Timmy Awards, and thank you to those who voted for us! We’re thrilled to be considered a top employer for company innovation and culture and can’t wait to see what’s next for Actian!
