SAUSALITO, Calif. (PRWEB) April 19, 2018
Waggl, the leading platform for real-time feedback powered by employee voice, today announced that it has been recognized by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area.
“We are especially thrilled to be ranked 15th of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area, because creating a committed and resilient culture is one of Waggl’s foremost goals,” said Michael Papay, Co-Founder and CEO, Waggl. “We believe that people’s voices should be heard, and we are deeply dedicated to creating a culture based on listening, trust and mutual respect. Successful organizations know that high performance is driven by engaged people, not measurement and numbers alone. Waggl produces sustainable engagement and increased performance by offering people an opportunity for meaningful connection, transparent dialogue, and inclusive decision making.”
Waggl’s employee experience resources and initiatives are focused around the core values of health and wellness throughout the company. Not only does Waggl provide perks like reimbursable gym memberships, Crossfit classes, and educational resources, it also supports a healthy mindset in day-to-day work. Employees regularly take one-on-one meetings while walking on a path around a beautiful marina rather than sitting in the conference room all day. The company has a partnership with a unique local wellness center next to the office that offers fitness, yoga, meditation, kayak rentals, and other classes.
The focus on wellness is embodied by the leaders of Waggl, ensuring that health and wellness are embedded in the culture. It isn’t unusual to partner up with Waggl’s CEO in a morning boot camp class or to join the Chief Marketing Officer in a midday meditation session.
Waggl’s flexible working hours allow team members to prioritize their health at the time of day that works for them, regardless of whether they are at our headquarters in Sausalito or working remotely. In addition to flexible work hours, Waggl offers an extremely lenient remote work culture that allows staff to work anywhere. If someone needs to take care of a sick family member, they are encouraged to work from home. If an employee wants to travel, they are invited to pick up their work on the road and the company supports staff to take time off for vacations and personal development.
Waggl’s staff nearly doubled in size over the last year. With this tremendous growth, the company consciously prioritized improving its benefits and perks to maintain and nurture a positive employee experience. It added company sponsored happy hours, a monthly ‘fun’ budget with activities chosen by rotating employee leads, CrossFit sessions, and additional social and wellness activities. Waggl also increased its contribution match and maintained providing employee stock ownership even as it continued to hire more staff.
