In addition to recognitions as an employer of choice, Progress was recognized as a software provider of choice and was included in the “Top 100 Software Companies of 2022” by The Software Report. Progress was ranked #26 in the annual list, based on nominations and research into a company’s ratings on Glassdoor, G2, Capterra and more.

Progress also received a 2022 Tech Cares Award from TrustRadius for demonstrating a strong commitment to CSR, a bronze recognition from the Stevie Awards for Great Employers in the categories of “Best CSR Strategy” and “Achievement in Diversity and Inclusion” and was an honoree in the MassTLC Tech Top 50 for “Social Responsibility Impact”.
Progress was also named a finalist in the 2022 HR Excellence Awards in the “Best Diversity and Inclusion Strategy” category and the 2022 CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards for “Diversity Employer of the Year.”
“Progress is comprised of people—affectionately known as Progressers—who truly care about the success of their colleagues, the company and our community. As a result, we have a thriving culture based on trust and respect and often come together to find new ways to work more collaboratively, effectively and empathetically,” said Yogesh Gupta, CEO, Progress. “These recent recognitions underscore how committed we are to living our values each day and I am humbled and proud to lead such an inspiring group of people and organization.”
Progress operates with a “people-centric” mindset and strives to be a diverse, equitable and inclusive company where every employee has a sense of belonging.

With the CSR program, employees can leverage the many resources set forth by Progress’ Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) team and employee resource groups (ERGs) as well as give back to their communities through the global charitable giving program and paid time-off to volunteer.
