Today, company culture and compensation data platform Comparably launched its first series of workplace awards in 2018, and we’re thrilled to share that HubSpot has been honored with the following recognitions:
These recognitions are based on HubSpot employees’ reviews on Comparably over the past year. (Visit HubSpot’s Comparably profile here.) Thank you, HubSpotters, for your feedback and for making our company a great place to work! While we still have lots of work to do, Comparably’s recognitions today are a strong testament that we are headed in the right direction on creating an environment where employees can learn and grow.
Of the awards, HubSpot’s VP of Leadership and Management Development, Laura Parrott, said:
"Hiring amazing people is critical to the success of any company, but sometimes, developing those people into managers and helping them grow their careers is an afterthought. HubSpot makes employee growth not just an HR priority, but a business priority. Over the past year, my team has worked with our global managers in development trainings, rolled out self-facilitated discussions called 'ThinkSpaces', and created a 'quick-hit' mentor program where managers can discuss leadership challenges in a safe space. Employees at HubSpot are eager to learn and grow, and these recognitions from Comparably are a great testament to we how we as an organization are helping them do just that."
Beyond our leaders and development programs, HubSpot offers a variety of opportunities to walk the walk on our belief that employees should ‘Always Be Learning’. Throughout the year HubSpotters can take ‘Master Classes’ which are workshops led by employees for employees on everything from learning basic HTML to decorating a cake. The Learn@HubSpot platform is an internal knowledge base of online courses and resources for self-paced learning on topics including SEO, localization, career growth, and more. The HubSpot Free Books program sends employees a free copy (via Kindle or hard copy) of a book on their reading list, and monthly HubTalks invite thought leaders, including entrepreneurs, activists, executives, and writers, in to do a seminar just for employees.
Additionally, the HubSpot Fellows program is run twice a year for employees to spend a week getting a “mini-MBA” with courses taught by executives and business school professors.
But at the end of the day, the best resource for learning and growth here at HubSpot is employees themselves. Our Culture Code states that we love working with people who have “HEART”, or, people who embody five key traits: Humble, Empathetic, Adaptable, Remarkable, and Transparent.
We’ve found that these are great people to learn from and that they challenge us to grow our skills, thinking, and careers, and those traits are embodied in everyone from our leadership team to individual contributors. One Comparably employee review of our executive team reads, “The leadership team leads by example - they believe what they preach and they make it so you want to show up everyday and win for them, win for HubSpot, and win for our customers.” We're truly humbled to have the #1 rated leadership team in the country - thank you to our employees for these reviews!
So, thank you to HubSpotters with HEART who make us love coming into work every day, and to Comparably for celebrating our culture of growth!
