SAN FRANCISCO, CA., June 9, 2023, Sparrow is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place To Work® for the 2nd year in a row. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Sparrow. This year, 87% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 30 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Great Place To Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“Great Place To Work Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, the Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place To Work. She emphasizes that Certification is the sole official recognition earned by the real-time feedback of employees regarding their company culture. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Sparrow stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees."

“The collaborative and supportive culture our team has built is what consistently makes Sparrow an amazing place to work, and we are proud to be recognized for this honor once again,” said Director of People Operations, Diandra Oliveira. “A huge thank you to our team for everything they do to support Sparrow’s mission!”

As our fully-remote team grew to over 160+ members spanning 30+ states in the past year, we created a dedicated space online for Sparrows to connect with nearby Sparrows. This opened the door for more in-person interactions and fun conversations about events happening in their respective states. “It’s been incredible getting to see photos of Sparrows meeting each other in real life and making connections outside of work. Building alongside people you enjoy working with makes all the difference,” said Director of People Operations, Diandra Oliveira.

According to Great Place To Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
