In an anonymous internal survey taken this past quarter, 98% of employees said they would recommend Business.com as a place to work. Further, the survey found more employees are engaged with 85% of employees who said they have a solid understanding on the Business.com strategy and where the company is going. In the feedback section, one Business.com employee wrote, "The product is constantly improving, the overall morale is high and people seem engaged as a whole. It's a good time to be at Business.com."

Along with the benefits of a free gym membership, days off to volunteer, happy hours, quarterly social events and healthy snacks and drinks throughout the day, Business.com praises an honest and transparent environment that is adaptable and flexible, supportive with a sense of urgency and passion.

In just a few short weeks, we will achieve our greatest transformation yet affectionately dubbed The Kraken, which is the code name for the next generation of our site and platform."
