Lola.com Recognized with 2 Comparably Awards
Employees give Lola.com high marks for happy work environment and best compensation
BOSTON – Oct. 3, 2019 – Lola.com, the Agile Travel Management™ company that provides a super simple way to manage, book, report, and save on business travel, has won two Comparably Awards for Happiest Employees and Best Companies for Compensation. Lola.com is creating the world’s most innovative, simple business travel app, but its “Wicked Loving” culture – high energy, authentic, and inclusive – is making it one of Boston’s hottest startups.
“Happiness at work is an important metric that should be used when determining who we want to work for and how we want to work,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. “Providing your workforce with a positive environment, clear goals employees can be invested in, and a comprehensive compensation package is a winning formula for the top-rated companies on our Happiest Employees and Best Compensation lists.”
The Happiest Employees Award is based on a combination of attributes that contribute to happiness at work, including positive environment and overall satisfaction with pay, perks, and benefits. Lola.com offers a very competitive benefits package, paying 100% of benefits, including medical, dental, and vision. The Best Companies for Compensation Award is based solely on employee sentiment regarding how fairly they felt they are compensated.
Lola.com’s philosophy is that building a great company work culture begins with aggressive and pervasive transparency, but this doesn’t mean just sharing financials and distributing board decks. Lola has a very transparent culture where they share the bad news, along with the good, and they extend that transparency to candidates – being real during the interview process – and to customers, not exaggerating product roadmaps, overselling features, and making promises they can't keep.
The company also makes having fun together a priority. They gather offsite every month for Lola Mosh to celebrate milestones, award spot prizes, share progress, voice new ideas, and hear from awesome speakers in tech, innovation, and startup culture. The annual company-wide summer event, Lola Quest, features a scavenger hunt and competitions, and turns into a legendary company party with nightclub, bar, mood lighting, and DJ booth.
The company is also hosting a first full-scale event on November 6, 2019 in Boston, the Agile Operations Summit, which is entirely staffed by employees and features many employee presenters. The one-of-a-kind event is bringing finance and operations teams to help them grow their organizations through valuable agile practices.
