Atlassian Corporation Plc (NASDAQ: TEAM), a leading provider of team collaboration and productivity software and the maker of Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Trello, today announced that it has been ranked 19th amongst 2021 Best Workplaces in India by the Great Place to Work Institute. This was Atlassian’s first time participating in the submission in India for the period of December 2020 to November 2021.
Atlassian, which established a local presence in 2018, has grown its office in Bengaluru into a world-class R&D center by hiring the smartest technical minds. To accelerate its local growth plan, the company had also announced plans to hire 300 R&D engineers in India as part of a major recruitment drive in 2021. The ranking was based on the results of the Great Place to Work’s Trust Index survey, which was completed by Atlassian’s India-based employees, as well as a culture brief that heavily focused on how companies supported employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“India’s technology talent is world-class. Not only is it our fastest growing R&D site globally, but it’s also our fastest growing talent location. After only three years, we are thrilled to be one of the best places to work. We do what it takes to attract, nurture and retain incredibly talented people,” said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Co-founder and Co-CEO, Atlassian.
Dinesh Ajmera, Site Lead and Head of Engineering, Bengaluru, Atlassian said, “We are honoured and humbled to be recognised as one of the best workplaces in India. This award is a tribute to all of our team members and their commitment to building a great company, as they’re the ones who make Atlassian a fantastic place to work. We believe that by empowering our own employees to unleash their potential, we will fulfil our mission of helping our customers around the world unleash their potential too.”
With the global shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Atlassian re-looked at how it could engage and support employees across the globe. In addition to rolling out a new distributed work model, Atlassian is building on its updated employee benefits, including increased mental health support via subscriptions and access to expert resources, special leave during the pandemic, and additional resilience workshops for staff. It also announced a USD$500 stipend for staff to create an optimal workspace.
In order to help candidates succeed during the interview process, especially during the pandemic, the company has also created the Candidate Resource Hub, a space to house and centralize all of the resources that it offers externally for prospective candidates, candidates actively interviewing, and anyone who wants to learn more about Atlassian.
