What does it mean to be one of Crain’s Best Places to Work? This year, Zeel is proud to announce that we’re ranked by Crain’s New York on its top 100 list of NYC’s best working environments. (This is a year of superlatives for Zeel – we also made the 2017 Inc. 5000 list, coming in at number 167.) Crain’s New York commended Zeel’s commitment to wellness and balance for its employees – not just customers.
Zeel joins other previous and present-day top 100 companies like ZocDoc, Bonobos, and Poppin.
This accolade is significant to us, as it recognizes Zeel’s commitment to living our values, our culture – and to continuing to make Zeel a place that fosters personal and professional growth.
According to employee responses on the Crain’s survey, some of the highlights of working at Zeel include completely free massages at the office, standing desks to promote ergonomic wellness, unlimited paid time off, and company transparency.
Says Tessa Ferrier, Zeel’s digital marketing manager,
“Zeel is one of the most forward-thinking, innovative, collaborative, and nimble companies that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working at. Highlights include unlimited PTO, lack of red tape & complete transparency across the company, standing desks, and leadership that’s supportive and empowering. No idea is off limits, and people truly feel heard, valued, and comfortable stepping outside of their ‘roles’ to suggest tactics that will impact the business.”
We’re incredibly excited to welcome Tessa and other new employees to Zeel as we continue our expansion, both in New York City and nationwide (now in 65+ cities and counting).
As Zeel grows, we will continue to commit to offering employees a top working environment, great benefits and a supportive and engagement company culture.
