The Best Place to Work Award is given to a business that has honest leadership with a clear vision and identity, providing employees with an understanding of where the company is pointed, what the company believes in and what everyone is working toward. In receiving the award, HiMS demonstrates that it provides flexible growth for employees and a culture of collaboration, while remaining open about how the company is performing and securing honest feedback from its employees.
