How good of a company is HubSpot?
HubSpot’s 97% employee experience rating is based on workplace-specific questions within the Great Place to Work® Trust Index survey, along with its ranking among the 100 Best Companies to Work For.
Participants were asked about the degree to which they trusted their leaders, the respect they received at work, the fairness of decisions made at work, and their sense of camaraderie.
The workplace surveys provide employees with the opportunity to provide insight into how they’re doing and how they can improve.
Those feedbacks are used to guide decisions about company culture and to implement new ideas and initiatives that best support their mission of building an inclusive, transparent, autonomous, flexible, and autonomous culture.
To ensure HubSpot’s employees could do their best work and continue to grow at HubSpot, employee feedback was incorporated over the course of 2019.
A few examples are as follows:
Launching a Global Inclusion Index Survey:
In 2019, they launched their first global survey to measure how they were progressing on their journey toward creating a culture of belonging.
HubSpot’s quarterly Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) survey incorporates the Global Inclusion Index, which allows employees to anonymously share feedback on what HubSpot is doing well, as well as where improvements are needed.
The survey helps to better understand where diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DI&B) should be spent more energy globally.
HubSpot’s annual Diversity Report also contributes to this, in which they share how they’ve made progress in creating a more inclusive place to work, and also where they could improve. It is with the help of this data that they can hold ourselves responsible for creating an inclusive culture at HubSpot.
Adding DI&B Microlearnings on [email protected]:
Helping employees build empathy and learn about diversity is crucial for creating a sense of belonging and inclusion.
To educate managers and employees on psychological safety, reducing interview bias, and understanding unconscious bias, their DI&B team created e-learning and individual training programs in collaboration with their Learning and Development (L&D) team.
Signing the 100% Talent Compact:
HubSpot challenges societal norms that limit women’s success, as well as their own compensation policies.
Because of this, they signed Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s 100% Talent Compact in April 2019, which commits their company to continuously assess their data and practices in order to determine whether there is a gender wage gap and to take steps to reduce it.
As one of the 250+ companies that have committed to eliminating the wage gap, they’re extremely proud to be a part of this groundbreaking effort.
Unseen Diversity Programming
They have added programs for veterans and accessibility to their culture playbook in 2019 to ensure they’re mindful of both visible and unseen diversity at work.
They launched their DI&B program in November by hosting an external breakfast event the week of Veterans Day to encourage veterans and allied employees to speak about the challenges veterans face at work.
In December, they also hosted their first “Tech Accessibility and Allyship” event, featuring speakers from the tech industry who talked about accessibility and what tech companies need to do to make products and systems more accessible.
Including Remote Work
- HubSpot’s global remote team grew to become the third-largest office in 2019. Due to the increasing accessibility of technology, their remote community, made up of more than 300 employees, grew rapidly thanks to global reach. Their cultural value of flexibility is promoted and aligned when employees can work at times and places that work for them.
- They hired a Remote Work and Inclusion Program Manager to act as the voice of the community and solve many of the challenges associated with working remotely, including tech accessibility and creating a remarkable workplace.
- Among these initiatives launched last year are the remote Crochet Club, which enables remote workers to sit together via Zoom and crochet for an hour; weekly remote water coolers, where employees working from home can go online for 30 minutes to discuss life, work, parenting, and whatever else the conversation leads to; and remote yoga sessions. To better understand the values, behaviors, and working styles of remote employees, they released their first-ever Remote Work Report.
HubSpot had an exceptionally successful year in terms of culture, diversity, and employee experience in 2019. As a result of their employees’ openness in sharing feedback, they’re excited to continue to grow in 2020 and beyond.
Their people are their greatest strength, and they’re thankful that every day, their employees choose HubSpot to develop professionally, solve big problems, help customers grow, and create this award-winning culture.
With HubSpot, small and medium-sized businesses around the world can grow better by leveraging software and systems. They foster connections and career growth within their company culture.
