From workplace accolades to product wins, we are proud to be able to highlight some aspects of our company and the recognition they’ve received in the past few months. 

We recently published our DEI Statement, which declares our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion—not just for our associates, but for our partners, customers and open source contributors. 

Our culture is rooted in transparency, collaboration, and inclusion—open source principles that continue to drive our company forward. We see the following awards as a recognition of our open source-driven innovation, where the best ideas can come from anywhere and anyone.

Computing UK’s DevOps Excellence Awards

The DevOps Excellence Awards recognize organizations, individuals and solutions with a range of categories covering different stages of DevOps progress. Red Hat and our Open Innovation Labs were selected as the winner of the Best DevOps Consulting Firm category. “We particularly liked a reference to leaving the customer in a position to effectively see a powerful way to scaling the solution, which is something many labs don’t get to,” says one of the judges.

We were also named the Most Innovative DevOps Vendor. This category recognized vendors with industry-leading approaches to working with DevOps as well as a history of DevOps expertise. A Consulting UK representative says this about Red Hat: “Our winner breathes DevOps transformation and culture at scale with a plethora of case studies and examples.” Learn more about our DevOps approach.

Human Capital Management research and analyst firm Brandon Hall Group recognized solutions that resulted in substantial benefit to business and the human capital management functions. Awards are judged on the following criteria: fit the needs of the organization, design of the program, delivery of the program, measurable benefits, and overall impact. 

Red Hat’s IT Digital Adoption Team was recognized with a Gold award. Red Hat and WalkMe collaborated on an HCM implementation that sparked a complete culture shift.
