Charleston, S.C. (February 10, 2022) — Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, has been named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers for the fifth year. Blackbaud is included in the mid-size companies category and ranked in the top 16 within the IT, Internet, Software and Services industry. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

We’re continually focused on creating a workplace where people can be their authentic selves and pursue their passion of making the world a better place.”  

Forbes and Statista selected the list of America’s Best Employers 2022 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of approximately 60,000 American employees working for companies with more than 1,000 employees. Across 25 industry sectors, 1,000 employers have been awarded, including 500 large employers and 500 mid-size employers.
