Since our founding nearly a decade ago, HubSpot has considered its employees the key to the company’s success. From the little things like an ever-stocked candy pantry and a nap room to industry-changing ideas like transparent leadership and an unlimited vacation policy, HubSpot has consistently invested in a positive employee experience.
For this reason, HubSpot is proud to announce that it was named a 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplace by Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work®. Based on employee satisfaction surveys, the award and #10 ranking affirms HubSpot’s belief that a company’s success begins with each individual employee.
“From the very beginning we knew that our employees would be the drivers behind our company’s identity,” said Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot’s CTO and co-founder. “Each HubSpotter around the world has contributed to building HubSpot’s culture and shaping its personality. Ultimately, this award is a reflection of their commitment to grow the company to be somewhere they’re proud to work.”“Employee happiness is everything when it comes to running a business,” said Katie Burke, VP of Culture and Experience at HubSpot. “The happier our employees, the better our product, and the more successful our customers. Most executives don’t realize it, but even a small investment in employee experience can have a huge return for the company on the whole.”
HubSpot has pioneered a number of programs and perks to bolster employee happiness. Some of its unique benefits include an on-site gym with nutrition and fitness classes, a room for meditation, Mystery Dinners to allow employees from across teams meet and eat together, unlimited vacation, a sabbatical for anyone employed for over five years, standing desks, Waffle Wednesdays, and of course, free snacks, fruit, vegetables, candy, wine, and beer on tap.
Winners of Fortune.com’s Best Small & Medium Workplace award are selected primarily from Great Place to Work® surveys results, which measure how happy employees are with their current jobs. Great Place to Work® uses proprietary assessment tools and advisory services to provide the benchmarks, framework, and expertise needed to identify outstanding workplace cultures. The Best Small & Medium Workplace announcement comes shortly after HubSpot was named a Fortune.com 2015 Best Workplace for Women.
