SAN FRANCISCO, June 8, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Periscope Data, the world's first software platform built to address the complete analytics lifecycle, has been recognized by Comparably.com as one of the top companies in the U.S. in several categories in its latest rankings. As a reflection of its dedication to building a collaborative, dynamic and inclusive culture, Periscope Data was recognized as one of the top companies for professional development and its leadership team, while CEO Harry Glaser was voted one of the Best CEOs for female employees and for diversity.

Comparably’s ratings reflect employee perspectives on the CEO’s leadership style and effectiveness across several categories. Periscope Data was one of only four small-to-mid-sized companies to appear on all four of these lists.

“2018 is the year in which women across the country stood up and spoke out against gender discrimination, pay inequality and harassment in the workplace," said Jason Nazar, Comparably CEO. "Comparably's Best CEOs for Women awards recognizes the leaders that female employees ranked as the best of the best. These CEOs create cultures that support and encourage women, and we hope it will motivate other leaders to do the same."  

These rankings are an excellent reflection of the priorities we've set when building a positive culture at Periscope Data. Developing a business of people who are kind, positive, inclusive, helpful and transparent doesn't just impact our day-to-day work environment, it absolutely makes an impact in improving our business and building a better product for our clients. I'm very excited about the path ahead for Periscope Data and proud of the team we've built. - HARRY GLASER

CO-FOUNDER AND CEO OF PERISCOPE DATA
