BambooHR’s Hero Awards highlight excellence in reward and recognition, talent acquisition, performance management, high-impact HR, culture, and onboarding.
We’re not used to winning awards — we tend to keep our heads down and work hard to keep our revenue-funded company going, ten years and counting. Only in a place like this would our “Get Nerdy” and “Data > Opinion” t-shirts be so popular.
But thanks to our awesome employees, we’re on a winning streak for our company culture. Last year, CB Insights was named to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work and Crain’s Best Places to Work in NYC. And today, we’re happy to announce we received BambooHR’s Hero Award in “Reward and Recognition” for how we recognize the contributions of our employees embodying the 4H’s of CBI.
Anand and I learned early on that you can’t leave culture to chance, so we’ve been 100% committed to our culture code. But besides hiring humble, helpful and crazy-smart people, how do we create a positive environment as a “startup for grownups?”
It’s simple: we reward and recognize our teammates in thoughtful and creative ways that encourage everyone to grow personally and professionally.
We host bi-annual CB Insights Peer Awards, where everyone votes for a teammate who has been performing above and beyond. In addition to receiving this ringing endorsement from your colleagues as a helpful, humble, happy and hungry teammate, peer award winners get a free vacation courtesy of CBI.
We send them on vacation to any location of their choice where we provide for airfare, hotel, and two extra PTO days. From Medellin to Mallorca, check out where some CBI employees decided to use their peer award (and how we pull this off thanks to a bit of creative frugality).
But we do more than just pay for vacations around the world. Several times throughout the year, Anand and I organize a “Dinner for Doers” where we take out the top 12 employees recommended by CBI department heads. It’s a great opportunity for us to celebrate our “hungriest” employees over good food and cheer.
And nearly every day, whenever someone achieves a noteworthy accomplishment — the launch of a new feature on our platform or a new business win — we ring the gong. It’s a company tradition that acknowledges the solid work that CBI’ers do on a daily basis.
At CB Insights, our employees are best-in-class and produce remarkable work because of our supportive and team-driven culture. Interested in joining our award-winning crew? Check out the open positions here.
