“Team culture and happiness are fundamental components of hiring and retaining great talent and overall organizational growth and have gone to great lengths to nurture a strong and inclusive culture that values work-life balance and mental health. This approach has helped us to scale, grow, and innovate without compromising our employee’s well-being,” said Gleb Polyakov, Co-Founder & CEO, Nylas. “As a result, we are doubling down on the internal investments we are making to ensure Nylanauts around the globe have access to the tools, perks, and benefits needed to foster personal and professional growth. Being recognized by Comparably is truly an honor and a validation that our mission and beliefs are aligned with what employees value most.”

The spotlight on employee satisfaction, well-being, and curating a positive work environment has significantly grown over the past few years as companies have started laying the foundation for the post-pandemic workplace. Businesses are also increasingly finding a direct connection between workplace happiness and productivity. According to a study conducted by Oxford University, workers are at least 13% more productive when they are happy and feel supported by their peers, leaders, and organization.

“There are many important factors to consider when determining where to work, from a positive environment and compensation to perks and benefits,” said Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar. “It is clear that Nylas cares about the full spectrum of their employees’ lives which is why they continue to be highly rated in multiple categories.”
