NetDocuments, the world’s #1 trusted cloud platform where legal professionals do work, today shared the results of an unprecedented 2021. The “year of the employee” focused on overall team growth, employee and corporate recognition, and leadership team expansion.
The company hired an unprecedented 150 new team members in 2021, accounting for 34% growth compared to 2020. This trend continues with 25 new hires having already been onboarded in January across all functions. NetDocuments has fully embraced the realities of a hybrid work environment with team members representing 30 states and 6 countries.
The team’s “winning together” mantra has resounded across the industry with recognition by international, national, and regional associations, businesses, and rankings. In 2021, NetDocuments was selected by Utah Business magazine as one of “Utah’s Best Companies to Work For” and was recognized by the Salt Lake Tribune for being a top workplace in Utah, and by Top Workplaces in multiple national categories, including Compensation, Top Managers, and Remote Work.
"We are so proud of our entire employee base and the unique culture they have managed to create,” stated Claudia Reese, NetDocuments VP of Human Resources. “This is particularly impressive based on our remarkable employee growth and the bond the entire team shares.”
Talent acquisition and retention remain a central priority with nearly 60 promotions being awarded throughout 2021 and 6 employees earning inter-departmental promotions. This is talent mobility at its best.
2021 was also a banner year for personal accolades and recognition. Alvin Tedjamulia, NetDocuments Chief Technology Officer and co-founder was honored as a 2021 Fastcase 50 winner and last week was recognized for Lifetime Achievement as part of ILTA’s 2021 Distinguished Peer Awards. Heather Golovnya, Josh Moore, and McKenzie Mayer were acknowledged during the same award ceremony as part of ILTA’s Young Professionals to Watch list. In addition, Scott Kelly, currently product manager at NetDocuments which acquired his company Afterpattern in November, was selected by the ABA Journal as part of its Legal Rebels Class of 2022. The ABA Legal Rebels project honors the mavericks who are finding new ways to practice law, represent their clients, adjudicate cases, and train the next generation of lawyers.
Subject-Matter Expertise and Leadership Expansion
“The DNA of NetDocuments is our people, and the incredibly talented team they represent,” stated Josh Baxter, NetDocuments CEO. “The current stage and pace of growth demands leaders who have been on the growth journey through $300m of revenue. We’re excited to have these accomplished individuals join our team as we write the next chapter at NetDocuments.”
