Fortune and Great Place to Work® Name Dermavant One of the Best Small Workplaces and Best Workplaces in Biopharma in 2022

The awards mark Dermavant’s fourth and fifth recognitions by Fortune and  Great Place to Work

LONG BEACH, Calif., and BASEL, Switzerland, September 7, 2022 — Dermavant Sciences, a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative therapeutics in immuno-dermatology, today announced the company has been named one of the 2022 Best Small Workplaces™ and 2022 Best Workplaces in Biopharma™ by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work® — Dermavant’s fourth and fifth recognitions by the organizations.

“Being recognized by an organization of Fortune’s esteem on multiple occasions is a testament to the talented and passionate people that make up Dermavant,” said Todd Zavodnick, its’ Chief Executive Officer. “This team cares deeply about our mission to make healthier skin a reality for people living with chronic skin conditions, which has translated into a strong, highly collaborative culture that embodies our core values of Heart, Mind and Soul. These lists are highly competitive, and I cannot emphasize enough how proud I am of everything this team has achieved.”

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“It’s not the size of an organization that makes it great, but how the organization treats its people,” says Michael C. Bush, Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work. “And these small workplaces have proven that the inspiring cultures they’ve created go head-to-head with those of any large corporation. Leaders at these companies put their people first, and in return, achieve stronger business results than the average workplace.”

To determine the Best Small Workplaces and Best Workplaces in Biopharma lists, Great Place to Work analyzed survey responses from more than 30,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies. In the surveys, 97% of employees at Dermavant Sciences said it is a great place to work compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.1

These awards come shortly after Dermavant was named one of the “100 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles” by the Los Angeles Business Journal for the third consecutive year, earning the number three spot on the 2022 Medium-Sized Companies list. Dermavant also ranked as a Fortune Best Small Workplace in 2020 and 2021 and was ranked one of the Best Workplaces in Biopharma in 2021.
