CARY — SAS has ranked on People magazine’s fourth annual 50 Companies That Care list.

The Cary-based software analytics firm nabbed the No. 22 spot on the acclaimed list and is credited for its “care and concern” for its employees and community alike during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Partnering with the Cleveland Clinic to share predictive models to help hospitals plan for current and future needs, SAS was able to help provide actionable insight into demands on the healthcare industry, from ICU beds to PPE to ventilators,” it added.

“Today marks my 20th year here,” one employee in quoted as saying, “and I’ve never felt so proud or blessed to be a part of SAS as I do right now.”

Partnering with Great Place to Work, People identified the top U. companies supporting their employees and their communities during the current health care crisis.

Florida-based supermarket chain Public Super Markets nabbed the No. 1 spot.
