“Being recognized as one of Inc.’s Best Workplaces for four years gives me an immense sense of pride because it’s based on employee input,” said Joy Wolken, Chief People Officer at Alation. “Every Alationaut makes this a rewarding workplace by embodying our values: move the ball, listen like you’re wrong, build for the long-term, and measure success through customer impact. These values are foundational to supporting our growing customer base, as they bind our expanding global team and help us keep culture top of mind while also driving strong performance.”
