Boston Business Journal Names Perch One of Its 2021 Best Places to Work
Last week, the Boston Business Journal (BBJ) announced its list of the 2021 Best Places to Work honorees. 80 companies across Greater Boston were named to the list, and we're happy to say that Perch was one of those companies!
The 80 companies honored in 2021 range in size and industry, with winners from the technology sector, retail industry, health care space, commercial real estate, and more.
Despite these differences in size and category, here's what the BBJ had to say about their similarities:
What they have in common is they are companies that strive to create an appealing workplace as the pandemic has continued to upend offices around the world.
“In a year that has brought incredible challenges for everyone both personally and in business, it is a true testament to great organizations to be named a Best Place to Work," said BBJ's Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones. "We congratulate all of our honorees and look forward to learning from them on how to create and sustain outstanding workplaces.”
Why Work at Perch?
Perch was selected based on employee-engagement surveys distributed by Business Journal partner Quantum Workplace. Our employees were asked to rate their work environment, work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, compensation, and benefits. The results were incredibly positive.
“In the last year, Perch has grown tremendously,” said Perch Founder and CEO Chris Bell. “We’ve acquired and currently operate over 30 Amazon FBA brands, and our team has more than doubled in size in just the last few months. We’re incredibly proud to be named as one of Boston’s Best Places to Work because it means that we’re scaling responsibly — balancing rocket ship growth with intentional, people-centric culture building in the midst of a pandemic. Our company came of age in a virtual environment, and we have empowered our employees to take initiative and move collaboratively in this dynamic and exciting space.”
Since its founding in late-2019, Perch has become a leading acquirer and operator of FBA businesses and a mecca of Boston-based and global talent. Key highlights include:
Rapid growth: Since January 2021, Perch’s headcount has increased by 130%
