BOSTON – beam has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.
Founded in 2018 beam’s initial CBD products captured the attention of customers looking to push their own performance limits. beam’s rigorous internal and third-party testing process leverages multiple independent laboratories to ensure their proprietary technology removes all traces of THC, leads, heavy metals and pesticides leaving only high-quality natural ingredients. In addition to using the highest quality broad-spectrum CBD, beam’s products are stacked with other functional ingredients to optimize four main categories of your day-to-day wellness routine – balance, performance, recovery and sleep. The result has been met with praise from high-performers like Baker Mayfield, Danica Patrick, Mat Fraser and Billy Horschel. In February beam announced a $5 million Series A, led by C2 Ventures. In total, beam has raised $12 million, which includes a $5 million seed round in 2019, led by Obvious Ventures.
Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.
“We truly are like a family in the sense that we value each member of our team’s personal development as much, if not more, than their contributions to the business. Our culture of radical transparency, empathy, and trust has cultivated an incredibly loyal and high-performing team,” said Kevin Moran and Matt Lombardi, co-founders of beam. “Recognition by Inc. affirms our commitment to our team and to our collective pursuit for better as we look to empower our customers to push their limits and improve their physical and mental wellness.”
“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
