Bit-Wizards is named on INC. magazine's annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020—hitting newsstands May 12th in the May/June 2020 issue. The list is the result of a wide-ranging and extensive review of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and incredible benefits.
Why is Bit-Wizards an INC Best Workplace?
Celebrating 20 years of success in 2020, making this list again for the 4th year in a row is no surprise. CEO Vince Mayfield and COO, Louis Erickson, set out in 2000 to build a company centered on the engineer—the employee. The decisions they make each day support that vision. As the team grows both in size, location, and experience, the company and its customers benefit exponentially.

How the INC Best Workplaces Survey Works
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year's list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees find their work engaging.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
100 percent provide health insurance.
50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
