Out of tens of thousands of different small and mid-sized companies within the United States, Booksy was awarded two Comparably Awards ranking our tech company in the top 25 best companies for women and the top 50 best companies for diversity.
Comparably is a career website that announces Best Places to Work Awards. Every year, Comparably distributes these awards to spread the word about different companies. One set of awards is for large companies and the other is for small and mid-sized companies. Booksy falls into the small and mid-sized category, because Booksy has 500 or fewer employees.
Comparably selects award winners based on ratings that actual employees submit via surveys. This year, Booksy employees submitted their responses over the course of 12 months from December 2019 to December 2020. Booksy ranked 13th in best companies for women and 38th in best companies for diversity.
Employees answered yes or no, true or false, and multiple choice questions on core culture metrics, compensation, leadership, work environment, and professional development opportunities. Booksy employees spoke highly about the support they’re offered in regards to unlimited paid time-off, generous maternity or paternity leave, and adoption support.
