TORONTO, June 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BlueCat, the Adaptive DNS Company™, today announced it has been named a Best Workplace™ for Inclusion 2021 and a Best Workplace™ for Mental Wellness 2021. On the heels of these accolades, BlueCat is also announcing the promotion of Cheryl Kerrigan to Chief People Officer.

Her appointment follows a long list of innovations and success in HR delivery at BlueCat. Under Kerrigan’s leadership, BlueCat has demonstrated an industry-leading commitment to mental wellness, organizational transparency, diversity, belonging, inclusion, and more. BlueCat employees also overwhelmingly reported that they felt BlueCat prioritized their health and mental wellness in a year defined by COVID-19 and a sudden shift to remote work. Currently, Kerrigan is the executive sponsor for BlueCat’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) council, which is made up of employees from around the company with the mission of using education to inspire a more inclusive workplace.

She says, of her approach to reinforcing BlueCat’s culture: “We’re collaborative in making things better across the organization, whether that pertains to diversity and inclusion efforts, mental health-supportive initiatives, or engagement and wellness activities. The more we conduct real and sometimes uncomfortable conversations across the board, the more we’re able to provide our team with the support needed to thrive both within and outside of their roles.”

Moving forward, BlueCat will continue to uphold its commitment to transparency and wellbeing across all facets of the organization and continue to invest in company-wide DEI education and programs that benefit each employee.
