December 17, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nylas, a pioneer and leading provider of Productivity Infrastructure solutions for software development, announces today it has been awarded among the Top 50 Best CEOs and Top 50 Best Companies for Diversity in 2020 from the Comparably’s annual Best Places to Work Awards. The Best CEO award reflects employee sentiment ratings of company CEOs and the Best Company for Diversity award is based on sentiment ratings from employees of color to reflect their workplace experiences within core culture metrics, such as compensation, team and leadership.

“When we look back at this year, it will be clear which companies prioritized a strong leadership team, and diversity and inclusion in their culture — and which ones did not”

“We have built Nylas from the ground up to be diverse, inclusive and transparent,” said Gleb Polyakov, CEO of Nylas. “It’s not enough to just care about diversity. Taking action to create resources, set goals, and execute for results is what makes the difference. With 2020 being such a pivotal year, we have continued to hold ourselves accountable to our core mission. Doing so only strengthens how we think and operate with diversity and inclusion at the forefront of our efforts.”

Comparably Awards are derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees anonymously rating their employer for categories such as: compensation, leadership, happiness, work-life balance, perks and benefits, and more throughout the year.

“When we look back at this year, it will be clear which companies prioritized a strong leadership team, and diversity and inclusion in their culture — and which ones did not,” said Jason Nazar, CEO of Comparably. “Nylas is a clear indication of one that does, and that’s portrayed directly through the results of these employee-driven awards.”
