Today, Swimlane was recognized as a 2022 Tech Cares Award recipient by TrustRadius, the most trusted research and review platform. This third-annual award celebrates companies that have gone above and beyond to provide impactful corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs for their employees and surrounding communities.
“Swimlane has earned a 2022 Tech Cares award for demonstrating a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility,” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius.
“Swimlane encompasses several aspects of CSR through their volunteer efforts with several charities that provide food to communities, focus on philanthropic team building, and help children and families who face difficult life events.”
Life in the Swimlane
Swimlane is built on a foundation of collaboration and innovation. Everyone on our growing team has the opportunity to be a pioneer working with a cutting-edge technology stack to create and distribute products that empower SecOps teams to automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks, letting them focus on the advanced security activities that get the most use out of their training.
Security automation is the future, and we’re all excited to be a part of it. But with great power comes great responsibility. That is why our core values are so important:
Punch Above Your Weight Class
Honesty and Integrity in ‘All the Things’
Always Be Leveling Up
Moves at the Speed of WOW
These core values extend beyond our day-to-day job duties. These core values highlight how we treat our co-workers, industry peers, and – most importantly – the communities around us. That is why Swimlane is committed to fostering a corporate culture that cares for its employees and encourages them to help others.
Each and every Swimlaner at our company has helped to create an award-winning platform and to establish Swimlane as the leader in low-code security automation. We couldn’t do it without these talented individuals, many of whom you can meet in our ongoing Life in the Swimlane series.
Success starts with a solid foundation, so here are a few ways Swimlane provides impactful support:
One of the most vital corporate social responsibility events Swimlane promotes is volunteering. It’s at the core of what we believe in. That’s why local Swimlaners near our Boulder, Colorado HQ regularly volunteer as non-profits such as A Precious Child, an organization that provides support and resources for local children in need.
Swimlane’s unlimited Paid Time Off policy encourages remote employees to take time off to volunteer in their local communities as well.
In-Office Employee Support
A key part of corporate social responsibility starts with supporting our own employees. Swimlaners receive competitive benefits and compensation, equity and 401k contributions, paid parental leave, access to mental health resources and more. While many Swimlaners work worldwide, we still have an active headquarters near Boulder, Colorado. Efforts to create an inclusive, energetic office environment include regular in-office events, social gatherings, snacks and drinks, as well as local team volunteer days.
Remote Employee Support
Corporate social responsibility is especially important when your workforce spans multiple countries and time zones. Swimlane proudly supports its remote employees with extra consideration toward inclusive events and opportunities. Some of the ways remote employees are supported include unlimited PTO to volunteer in local communities, as well as flexible hours and work schedules. Swimlane also encourages regular company-paid team-building events, both remote and in-person.
Inclusion, Diversity, Equality and Awareness at Swimlane
Another pillar of corporate social responsibility is consistently fostering inclusive and diverse work environments. Simply put, lack of diversity, equality, inclusion, and awareness are systemic problems across our world – not just in tech companies, but in law enforcement, healthcare, education, the criminal justice system, and more.
As a company committed to “honesty and integrity in all the things,” Swimlane is working toward being the change we want to see. We recognize that to combat systemic issues, we must put systemic programs in place.
Swimlane is committed to building a culture of inclusion, diversity, equity, and awareness (IDEA). Swimlane empowers everyone to bring their authentic selves to work each day and celebrates their unique traits and experiences. Embracing what makes us different is part of the DNA that makes Swimlane special and creates a strong organization, enabling us to win business with honesty and integrity.
