"Perceptions of the long term success of the company, development opportunities and confidence in leadership most impact engagement."
The New Tech numbers tell a story of (mostly) young and fast-growing companies that are some of the most in-demand places to work in the world right now. But what makes a New Tech company is not their age, size or industry - it is their approach to business. All of our New Tech companies are disruptive at their hearts; often internet-based or focused on creating bold new technologies.

What other New Tech benchmarks are available?
Because Culture Amp has the largest modern technology benchmarks in the world we are able to provide a range of different subsets of the New Tech Benchmark based on size and other criteria such as performance and/or growth metrics. The growing list for 2017 is outlined below.
New Tech 2018 | Sub 200: This is a benchmark narrowed down to just New Tech companies with 200 or fewer people. This is particularly useful is you're still definitely under 200 people.
New Tech 2018 | 200-500: This benchmark captures data from the mid tier sized New Tech companies that have surpassed the 200 people milestone but not yet cracked the 500+ size.
New Tech 2018 | 500+: This benchmark is for New Tech companies that have crossed the critical 500 person threshold representing a point at which most companies begin to have more complex structures. Most companies in the benchmark are still well short of 5000 people though.
New Tech 2018 | Top 25%: This benchmark is a great high performance aspirational benchmark that represents the point at which scores are in the top 25% of all companies on any given question. This benchmark represents a threshold in the overall benchmark so does not involve a different subset of companies.
New Tech 2018 | Top 10%: This benchmark is an even more aspirational benchmark that represents the point at which scores are in the top 10% of all companies on any given question. This benchmark represents a threshold in the overall benchmark so does not involve a different subset of companies.
New Tech 2018 | North America: This benchmark is comprised of employees working in North America for New Tech companies. Most of these companies are headquartered in North America but some are headquartered elsewhere.
New Tech 2018 | Europe: This benchmark is comprised of employees working in Europe for New Tech companies. Many of these companies are headquartered in Europe but some are headquartered elsewhere (especially North America).
