Power Home Remodeling Group - The exterior home remodeling company has many of the qualities that job seekers are looking for: flexibility, growth, and strong compensation and benefits (including an annual company trip).

In order to make their remote workforce feel connected to the company culture, HubSpot employs a remote work inclusion manager that organizes video yoga sessions or remote water cooler meetings, where remote workers can get to know each other and talk about projects they're working on. Employees cite HubSpot's flexibility as one of the company's best attributes. HubSpot was named Glassdoor.com's Best Place To Work 2020. Check out job openings at HubSpot.

Companies Making Headlines
Gravity Payments - The Seattle-based credit card and processing company made the news last year when company CEO Dan Price announced he was cutting his pay and implementing a plan to eventually pay all 120 employees at least $70,000.
Price's plan was both applauded and heavily criticized, but early returns indicate that it hasn't had an impact on the company and company revenue continues to grow. Outside of the $70,000 minimum wage headlines, the company prides itself on empowering its employees to make important decisions and be a CEO.
The majority of reviews about Gravity on Glassdoor.com are positive, as many employees say that they work hard but feel appreciated and love the company culture. The company also offers unlimited time off, subsidized gym memberships, and weekly catered breakfasts and lunches, to name a few. Check out job openings at Gravity Payments.
