Gusto released our third annual RISE report, which is our deep dive into Representation, Inclusion, Social Impact, and Equity at Gusto. We’re deeply committed to our RISE strategy, which focuses on Representation, Inclusion, Social Impact, and Equity, throughout the entire employee lifecycle. By prioritizing these elements and fostering a sense of community and purpose among our team members and customers, we’re continuing to do the work of building a company that we can all be proud of.


Designing hybrid teams that are connected *and* fun is not as straightforward as it seems. But with the right intention and thoughtfulness, companies can create stronger, more collaborative remote and hybrid team cultures. Tune in to Adobe's "The Power of Teamwork" podcast featuring Gusto's Liberty Kikerpill Planck (Head of Remote Experience + Head of How We Work) and Amy Thibodeau (Chief Design Officer) on how design tactics are core to how we think about hybrid teams: #hybridwork #remotework #distributedwork #smallbusiness #entrepreneurship
