Guru Named a Top Workplace for 2023
We’re thrilled to announce that Guru has received a 2023 Top Workplaces USA award!
The award was issued by Energage as a way to “recognize companies that have built exceptional, people-centric workplace cultures,” with winners determined by anonymized feedback from employees. We’re grateful to everyone at Guru for sharing feedback that led to this award, and more importantly for making it such a special place to work.
Guru’s VP of People Operations Jess Lantis said: “The most amazing thing about Guru is the group of remarkable humans who’ve helped build the company we have today. Our team brings our core values to life every single day and they’ve shaped the culture that we’ve come to know and love. They provide us with thoughtful feedback that ensures we’re able to evolve the employee experience, always with an eye toward continuous improvement. We were founded with a people-first mindset, and that’s enabled us to cultivate something really special — and I couldn’t be more proud to be on this journey with our team.”
Guru’s core values
Guru’s culture is built on five core values, which are a part of daily life at the company:
Seek and share knowledge
Embrace the journey
Don’t take yourself too seriously
Give and receive graciously
When a new employee joins the company, our CEO Rick Nucci delivers a session on what our values mean and how they have evolved over time. In every company town hall, we celebrate employees who have embodied our values in the previous month. And in our Slack instance, employees are encouraged to recognize team members living our values in their day-to-day work.
In addition to our core values, Guru’s culture is also shaped by our ongoing commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace. We’ve intentionally developed a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, where everyone is welcome. Over the past few years, we’ve focused on building ‘digital-by-default’ practices that support remote work, and a suite of perks, benefits, and policies designed to allow our team to do their best work where they see fit, agnostic of location—something that is enhanced by our own product.
How Guru’s people operations team uses Guru
Guru’s vision is to give every team in the world access to trusted information so that they can do their best work. This vision has resonated with HR, operations, and internal communications leaders more than ever in the past year, as companies seek to build and maintain company culture in the face of ongoing change and the shift toward remote work.
Guru’s people operations team uses Guru every day to share important org-wide updates, provide teams with a trusted source of truth for company information, and help to create an engaging employee experience.
We’re proud of the progress we made in 2022, thrilled to see our company recognized as a Top Workplace, and ready to continue to listen to feedback, seek opportunities to improve, and evolve our culture in the year ahead.
