A Great Place to Work: Why Values Make the Difference at Tanium

5.21.2020 | Tobias Julen

Tanium is a company on a mission: to revolutionise endpoint management and security for our global customers. The ground-breaking technology platform we’ve built helps the world’s largest organisations and governments manage and secure their enterprise environments against ever-advancing cyber threats and disruption. Our unstoppable team members are instrumental in making Tanium the success it is today.

That’s why we’re delighted to have been named one of the UK’s “Best Workplaces” for 2020 and a Centre of Excellence in Wellbeing, by Great Place to Work®. Recognition on this prestigious list for a second year in a row is testament to the fantastic workplace culture we’ve nurtured here over recent years, and the values on which it is based.

It’s particularly gratifying to be named a Great Place to Work for the second consecutive year because this is a ranking calculated not only by external audit but also comprehensive employee survey. Our team members scored us highly in categories like Trust, Teamwork, Employee Pride, and Dedication to Customer Success. Nearly all (95 percent) said their work has special meaning.

Unstoppable success

It’s easy to get motivated at Tanium. When the work you do is helping to drive transformative success at some of the world’s largest banks, retailers, healthcare organisations, universities and government agencies, it’s making a difference to all of our lives. Technology is, of course, an important part of this story. But the value of Tanium goes far beyond the product offering. From the top-down, there’s a recognition that cybersecurity and IT management issues can’t be solved by technology alone. The dedicated resources of our tireless team members are key to driving customer success.

As stewards of a culture that emphasizes the importance of collaboration, respect, and diversity, we operate by a strong set of core values:

We Do the Right Thing by putting our customers first, always acting ethically, and thinking and acting like owners of the company.

We Are Unstoppable in focusing on our mission with a relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence.

We Win as a Team by rejecting self-serving behaviour and succeeding through collaboration, diversity, and mutual trust and respect.

These values are surfaced every single day in the behaviours and decisions our nearly 1,500 dedicated team members around the world make — including those based here in the UK.

Our belief at Tanium is that if we hire the right people, trust and enable them, and ground everything in our core values, we’ll build a company to be proud of. Not only that, we’re creating a culture where people can do the best work of their careers.

The UK accolade is just one of many Tanium has received over the past year. These include: fourth place in the “Best Workplaces in Technology” list; tenth on the “100 Best Medium Workplaces” list; and eighth on the “Best Workplaces in the Bay Area” list.
