Phase 2 listed in Inc. Magazine’s annual list of best workplaces

The software consulting and development firm is the only Oklahoma-based company on the list, and it is the second year in a row the company has received the recognition.

Inc. Magazine named Phase 2, a software consulting and development firm, to its annual list of the Best Workplaces for the second year in a row.

The list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility. 

Phase 2 is the only Oklahoma-based company to have been named to Inc.’s 2022 Best Workplaces list.

In addition, Inc. also recognized Phase 2 in the following business categories: Prosperous and Thriving: $5MM – $50MM in gross revenue, Micro: Employee size 10-49 and Enduring Impact: 15+ years in business.

“To receive this award two years in a row is a testament to the quality and dedication of our team,” said Mark Towler, Phase 2 founder and CEO Mark Towler. Phase 2 has been on the fastest pace of growth we’ve ever experienced in our 23 years – all while adjusting to the changing dynamics of a hybrid remote/in-office work model. Finding and keeping such high-quality people, who are resilient in the face of such changes, is what continues to make Phase 2 one of the Best Workplaces.”

Collecting data from thousands of nationwide submissions, Inc. singled out 475 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking. 

“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
