Cloud platforms that keep the workforce connected have always served an important role.
But, in the post-COVID-19 world where working remotely is more common, these companies will serve an even greater purpose. RingCentral realizes this and is growing its team accordingly.
How RingCentral Keeps The World Connected
RingCentral is a global cloud communication and collaboration platform that allows individuals and businesses to communicate through its contact center, which features voice, video conferencing, and team messaging and collaboration.
RingCentral has always been a popular platform for companies that have offices around the world attempting to bring their international teams together with ease. With the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, RingCentral's platform served a major role in helping workplaces adapt to remote, or hybrid, work arrangements.
RingCentral touts itself as being "built for every industry" and has multiple customers in healthcare, retail, education, high tech, and sports. Some RingCentral customers include Columbia University, Insureon, New Relic, SoFi, Carvana, Oakland Athletics, and Detroit Pistons.

3 Things That Help RingCentral Stand Out
RingCentral is poised for continued growth.
RingCentral has grown by an average of 30% every year, according to the company's website, and this growth will likely continue as the company meets the demands of a virtual world.
The company has already made moves to enhance its platform in anticipation of the expansion of remote work. For example, in early 2021 RingCentral acquired the technology and engineering team at Kindite, a developer of leading cryptographic technologies that mitigate and reduce security and privacy risks to information and applications in the cloud.
The move was made to make the RingCentral platform more secure for all of its users.
"Security and reliability are paramount in enabling employees to work from anywhere," RingCentral's Chief Information Security Officer Heather Hinton said at the time of the acquisition. "With this team's leading-edge security technology, we will accelerate our ability to deliver end-to-end encryption and continue to enhance our commitment to deliver the highest level of security capabilities for our global communications platform, benefiting customers everywhere."
This enhanced focus on making the platform safer will undoubtedly open up more job opportunities down the road. In addition, RingCentral is always looking for ways to improve its platform and welcomes people who have big ideas and love innovation.
RingCentral has a global and diverse workforce.
One of the benefits of having offices around the world, and remote work, is that it gives RingCentral access to talent from all kinds of backgrounds. The company believes that its workforce should reflect the diversity of its customers.
"We're creators and problem solvers. We're not all the same, and that's our biggest strength. Together, we're building an inclusive culture that embraces what makes us human," the company states on its website.
The company currently has Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that help professionals with similar backgrounds connect and plays a role in contributing to professional development. RingCentral's current ERGs are Rainbow Room, U.S. Veterans, Women & Allies, Black Employees at Ring Central, and HUGS.
Some of RingCentral's continued goals for diversity and inclusion include:
- U.S. veteran representation
- Intentional ethnic diversity at all levels
- Disability inclusion
- More women at the board level
- Empower women in leadership
- Inclusion and visibility of non-binary genders
- Minority-owned business advocacy
- Minority-focused community support
RingCentral's company culture is getting noticed.
RingCentral landed on Glassdoor's "Best Places to Work" list for the first time in 2021, and the company was also recognized by employee review website Comparably for the best global workforce and for having the best company outlook for 2021, to name a few awards. RingCentral earned an A+ grade on Comparably for compensation.
