“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year,Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.
"The Wanderlust Group is building a different kind of company culture. One that not only recognizes but also embodies the importance of our people and our time. We encourage our Wanderlings to spend time outside of work with the flexibility to build the life and career that is meaningful to them. Time spent outdoors, inspired by the world around us, allows us to build a more mature business while maintaining a grassroots soul." said Jess Kang Palmer, vice president of people operations at The Wanderlust Group.
Among the unique characteristics of The Wanderlust Group's approach to work is the 4-day workweek on which it operates and an uncapped vacation policy. After implementing the 4-day workweek and giving employees Mondays off without any cuts to pay or benefits, The Wanderlust Group saw one of the most productive spans in its history and employee morale, retention and candidate applications all grew.
