Accounting automation software firm, BlackLine, has won a 2022 Tech Cares Award from TrustRadius, a B2B software peer review platform.  

The annual award celebrates companies that have gone above and beyond to provide impactful corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes for their employees and surrounding communities. 

This marks the third consecutive year BlackLine has been recognised for fostering an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) among its employees, support for remote employees and for giving back to the communities in which it operates.

“We are proud to have built a culture deeply rooted in diversity, equity and inclusion where employees know they can bring their authentic selves to work, whether they are in the office or working remotely,” says Susan Otto, Chief People Officer, BlackLine.  

“We live by the tenets 'Think, Create, and Serve' where BlackLiners prioritise finding ways to serve our customers, fellow employees, and the communities in which we live and work. We are honoured to be recognised by the TrustRadius for three consecutive years, and thank all of our employees for their continued service."

BlackLine is committed to doing its part to create a more sustainable and equitable world.

Apart from setting high environmental standards in its workplaces to supporting employee health and well-being, the company has also built strong relationships with suppliers from under-represented communities. 

It has fostered an environment of inclusiveness via Employee Resource Groups, protecting customers' data security and privacy and giving back to the community.

BlackLine’s cloud-based financial operations management platform and market-leading customer service help companies move to modern accounting by unifying their data and processes, automating repetitive work, and driving accountability through visibility.  

BlackLine provides solutions to manage and automate financial close, accounts receivable and inter-company accounting processes, helping large and mid-sized companies across all industries do accounting work better, faster and with more control.

The company is the pioneer of the cloud financial close market and is recognised as the leader by customers at leading end-user review sites, including G2 and TrustRadius.

To be honoured with a TrustRadius Tech Cares Award, each organisation had to be a B2B technology company that demonstrated significant impact via its CSR initiatives in at least one of the following categories: volunteerism; diversity, equity and inclusion programs; charitable donations and fundraising; support for in-office and remote employees; and environmental sustainability initiatives.  

The TrustRadius research team thoroughly vetted all nominations, and the supporting proof was provided, as needed, by the nominators. 

"BlackLine has earned a 2022 Tech Cares award for demonstrating a significant commitment to corporate social responsibility,” says Megan Headley, Vice President of Research, TrustRadius.  

“BlackLine runs a strong internal DEI program, including actions such as implementing an unconscious bias reduction program, supporting multiple Employee Resource Groups, and has offered internship opportunities to under-represented students. It also has a robust charitable giving program with employer-matched donations to UNICEF, UNHCR, American Red Cross and the ACLU, among others.”
