Flatiron startup Cockroach Labs finished fifth on Crain’s New York’s Best Places to Work list. The firm pairs new employees with a “roachmate” to help them acclimate to their new workplace during the first 30 days.
Ever since the world of work got upended, employers have been feverishly trying to figure out how to keep staff happy and engaged.
Annual worker turnover at Cockroach is about half the tech industry average, pegged at 23% by Everest Group. The stability is helpful, considering the market for cloud services jumped by 29% last year, to more than $400 billion, according to International Data Corp.’s data.
