FloQast, a provider of accounting workflow automation software created by accountants for accountants, announced a significant hiring initiative to support its unicorn status following its recent Series D funding round and $1.2 billion valuation. As VentureBeat puts it, FloQast is well-positioned to support the burgeoning remote work trend, which extends to its own employees — the company has also announced the FloQast Employee Choice work-from-anywhere policy designed to foster a high level of work-life balance.
FloQast has firmly established itself as a team-first organization while building significant momentum. Over the past year, the company was named to three “best places to work” lists, including Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2021, along with similar honors from the Los Angeles Business Journal and Built In LA. Those honors continued an impressive streak of inclusion on at least one “best places to work” list each year since 2017. FloQast also recently completed SOC 2 Type 1 certification and announced a global expansion with a new EMEA office before its recent $110 million funding round. With a rock-solid foundation in place, the company is looking to expand its team with an infusion of the best and brightest talent from across the U.S. and beyond.
“Our employees have always been what differentiates FloQast, and that will continue to be the case as we move through this next period of rapid growth,” said Mike Whitmire, CPA*, CEO and co-founder of FloQast. “It takes a world-class roster of teammates to build a startup into a unicorn, and adding to our proven team of winners will help us maintain our trajectory for years to come.”
FloQast Employee Choice Gives Team Members Unprecedented Flexibility
Unlike other all-or-nothing policies from many companies — fully remote or office-only — FloQast’s Employee Choice policy empowers employees with the option to choose the working environment and situation that best suits their needs. Each team member’s needs are different, and the company is committed to creating the best environment possible for each individual in order to build further on its award-winning company culture.
As the name indicates, FloQast Employee Choice allows team members to choose a hybrid-work model or a fully remote option that includes the ability to book a “hot desk” at the FloQast office, depending on availability. Other benefits include:
- Flexibility, autonomy and peace of mind
- Unprecedented ways to contribute to FloQast’s company culture
- Compensation that’s dependent on skill, not geography
- Working alongside top-level talent as the company seeks to hire the best of the best, regardless of location
“The goal of FloQast Employee Choice is to give our teams the opportunity to thrive by working how they work best,” said Adey Tadesse-Heath, Director of Human Resources at FloQast. “What’s important is how employees work, not where they work, so it only makes sense to implement a flexible policy that gives each individual FloQaster the best possible chance at success.”
