SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluescape has been named to Fast **Company's prestigious annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2021, ranking #9 in the Workplace category.
The list honors the businesses that have not only found a way to be resilient in the past year, but also turned those challenges into impact-making processes. These companies did more than survive, they thrived—making an impact on their industries and culture as a whole. This year's MIC list features 463 businesses from 29 countries.
"We are incredibly honored and excited to be included on Fast Company's list of the World's Most Innovative Companies," said Bluescape CEO Peter Jackson. "The workplace has taken on new meaning this year, and it's more important than ever that businesses and their employees feel connected, engaged and supported, wherever they are. This recognition is a true testament to our employees, our clients and our partners, who are driving the workplace of the future through dynamic, safe and collaborative technology that meets business needs in and outside of the office."
This award caps off a year of continuous innovation and business success for Bluescape. Most recently, Bluescape announced integrations with Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom and launched a flexible cloud architecture to drive enhanced security and user configurability on platforms including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Within the past year, the company saw a 300% increase in growth, added more than one million users to its platform, and drove a 400% increase in user interactivity.
Fast **Company's editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.
The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a roadmap for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
"In a year of unprecedented challenges, the companies on this list exhibit fearlessness, ingenuity, and creativity in the face of crisis," said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with Senior Editor Amy Farley.
To coincide with the issue launch, Fast Company will host its first-ever Most Innovative Companies Summit on March 9 and 10.
