(August 2, 2016) – Yardi’s corporate motto has always been simple: “Take care of our clients, take care of our employees, stay focused and GROW!”

The global technology company celebrates a major milestone this August. Yardi now has 5,000 employees, with its largest offices in the United States, India, Romania and Canada.

“It’s very special to mark the hiring of our 5,000th employee. Each of our employees has taken part in helping us become a success,” said Anant Yardi, the founder and CEO of Yardi. “We never imagined that the company would grow to this size when we started out.”

In the last five years, Yardi has more than doubled in size, and has expanded in the energy, self-storage and senior living sectors. The company now has 35 offices worldwide, including locations in The Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Singapore and China.

A few fun facts were shared with the global team this week when employee No. 5000 joined the ranks.

  • 7 employees were hired in the 1980s
  • 63 employees were hired in the 1990s
  • 738 employees were hired in the 2000s
  • 2,295  were hired between 2010 and 2014
  • 4,000 employee celebration was in January 2015
  • Nearly 500 employees hired in the last two years were referred by current Yardi employees.

“So what’s the secret to our success story? YOU! Each one of you has helped us reach this milestone,” said Gordon Morrell, Yardi’s executive vice president.

Employees at Yardi’s headquarters will celebrate the milestone with a 5,000 foot history walk around the company’s corporate campus at 9am on Wednesday, Aug. 10. Other offices have also planned celebrations. To see photos from these events, visit the Yardi Facebook or Instagram accounts.
