SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Eargo, the award-winning, direct-to-consumer health tech company
"We are excited by the rapid growth Eargo has experienced in the past few years and we recognize that we couldn't get here without our incredible team," said Christian Gormsen, CEO of Eargo. "These awards reflect our unique company culture and dedication that every one of our team members has towards improving the lives of millions of Americans. I'm very proud of our fast growing team; they are the true building blocks of our future."
Winners of the Overall Best Companies were determined based on a series of workplace culture questions employees were asked in categories of work-life balance, compensation and future outlook of the business at their place of employment. The answers to each question across these awards were given a numerical score and then compared to companies of similar size across the U.S. The final data set was compiled from almost 10 million ratings across 50,000 U.S. companies on Comparably.com.
"Winning Comparably's Best Company Culture award is an exceptional achievement, highlighting the absolute best places to work in the United States as rated by their own employees," said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. "These employers received the highest ratings from their teams across every facet of work, from leadership and office environment to compensation and company outlook."
Winners of the Best CEOs 2018 were chosen based on how employees rated their CEO. "The most successful businesses are led by amazing CEOs who serve as visionaries, in addition to being positive examples and support systems for their teams," said Nazar. "The chief executives on Comparably's Best CEOs list were the highest rated by employees for their inspiring, transparent, and engaging leadership."
Best Companies for Women winners were determined based on a series of 50 questions female employees were asked across nearly 20 core culture metrics. "Developing a culture that promotes the parity of women in the workforce should be the standard for all employers," Nazar said. "Comparably's Best Companies for Women celebrates businesses that are rated the highest by their own female employees. They serve as examples for what workplaces should be like for all women."
