Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored KnowBe4 as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces for Women. This is KnowBe4’s fifth time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 15th place. Earning a spot means that KnowBe4 is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 640,000 women who work for Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies that employ at least 50 women.

“KnowBe4 supports women in many ways, including through various events and initiatives, donations, an annual cybersecurity scholarship and an employee resource group,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Our comprehensive benefits package is also attractive with eight weeks of paid parental leave, open paid time off, opportunities for career advancement, options for fully-paid health insurance, company-wide monthly bonuses and more. We are grateful to be recognized for our efforts to provide a workplace where women continue to thrive in successful careers.”
