SAN ANTONIO, TX–(Marketwired – March 21, 2017) – Rackspace® today announced it has been ranked 74th on the 2017 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®. Fortune has named Rackspace as one of America’s top “100 Best Companies to Work For” in seven of the past 10 years.

Rackspace was selected among hundreds of companies competing for placement on the list. Rackspace ranked 74th, distinguishing itself from peers based on employee ratings of their workplace culture, including the level of trust they feel towards leaders, the pride they take in their jobs and the camaraderie they experience with co-workers.

On its Great Place to Work site, many Rackers cited the company’s adherence to its core values, community volunteer opportunities, philanthropy programs and work-life balance as major benefits of employment at Rackspace.

For nearly two decades, Rackers have created and nurtured a culture where we volunteer our best every day for our customers and for each other,” said Taylor Rhodes, CEO of Rackspace, who penned a blog post about the honor. “Our placement on this prestigious list demonstrates the commitment that Rackers have not only to their customers, but also to their fellow employees. We are honored to be included among many great companies on this year’s list, which inspire us to continue to evolve and improve our culture of Fanatical Support.
