Inc. Power Partner Awards Shines Spotlight on Workiva’s Commitment to Customers
Workiva Inc. (NYSE:WK), the world’s leading cloud platform for assured integrated reporting, has been named to Inc. Business Media’s 2023 Power Partner Awards, an annual recognition program for B2B companies that are empowering customers with the tools and resources they need to start, run, and grow their businesses.
Workiva was named in two Power Partner award categories, “Cloud Computing/SaaS,” recognizing companies that deliver remote services through the internet, including data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software, and “Productivity,” which recognizes companies that provide services or solutions that optimize efficiency in the workplace.
“Thousands of companies around the world trust Workiva to solve complex business reporting challenges and meet stakeholder demands for transparent, investor-grade disclosures. Our customers are the cornerstone of Workiva’s success, and this award reflects our team’s ongoing efforts to foster meaningful relationships with the people that rely on our platform,” said Penny Ashley-Lawrence, EVP and Chief Customer Officer, Workiva. “Being named to the Inc. Power Partner Awards is a testament to the unwavering commitment we have for our customers and our relentless dedication to exceeding their expectations day in and day out. This win is not only affirmation of our past performance but also fuel to continue delivering innovative solutions and exceptional service to power transparency and improve business outcomes.”
Ongoing Commitment to Customers
Workiva’s commitment to innovation and customer success has resulted in a broad base of passionate, loyal supporters, as demonstrated by an annual revenue retention rate of over 97%. Part of that support can be attributed to Workiva’s dedication to customers’ professional development. In addition to educational events and resources, Workiva is the founder and sponsor of three Pro Groups focused around industry disciplines: Financial Reporting, ESG, and GRC. Pro Groups empower practitioners with access to a broad network of like-minded professionals and a forum to discuss the challenges impacting their fields, exchange expertise, and drive positive change within their organizations.
Additionally, Workiva customers possess valuable domain expertise and unique perspectives on the direction of their industries—including how those industries can be improved by technology. The company has established three customer advisory boards, which bring together Workiva customers virtually and in-person throughout the year to share insights into their most pressing reporting and compliance challenges and provide candid feedback about the Workiva platform as it exists today as well as its trajectory for the future. By putting customers at the center of its product strategy, Workiva leverages their insights to develop fit-for-purpose, best-of-breed solutions that fulfill market demand and maintain the company’s position as the global leader in assured integrated reporting.
