Clarus Commerce Named One of Boston’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2020

Below is an article originally written by Laura Esposito, Talent Acquisition Manager at Clarus Commerce. Go to Clarus Commerce's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

For the third straight year, Clarus Commerce was named on the Boston's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For list.

Especially during this highly challenging year for everyone, this award means a little more.

And to receive this honor three consecutive years underscores the company's commitment to "doing the right things right."

This honor is given to companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach.

Best and Brightest companies are among the most influential, trend-setting companies across the country and regionally.

Clarus Culture Shines Even During a Pandemic

Culture is a word that is used in the most positive way here at Clarus.

Usually, we can point to daily interactions in meetings, at people's desks, or in the kitchen.

But our company culture took on a very different meaning this year since the pandemic began.

Although we have all been working from home since March 13, it's clear to everyone that we can achieve the same excellent results remotely.

In many ways, it speaks to the strength of the company culture when we're not all in the same office and the results are equally impressive.

From the second employees first walk into the office at Clarus, they can sense something is special.

We have taken the special feeling home with us and let it guide is during these challenging times.

The "New Hire" emails typically sent out Monday mornings haven't slowed since mid-March.

Our CEO, Tom Caporaso, is very proud of this honor.

"We're deeply honored to receive this recognition for the third year in a row because it focuses on our people first approach," Tom says. "Our company starts and ends with our team. We hire talented folks who thrive in our collaborative work environment. While this year has unfortunately seen many companies have to downsize due to the pandemic, Clarus has continued to hire new team members throughout. That is a credit to our People Operations department and this honor is incredibly appreciated."

What is #TEAM?

#TEAM is our motto, slogan, and core values we live and breathe here from the business side through to the people side.

#TEAM stands for:

  • Treat People Well
  • Encourage Collaboration
  • Aim for Greatness
  • Make a Difference

From our Clarus Cares events where we get to give back to the community on a quarterly basis, to working in the best interest of our employees and clients, we're constantly striving for more.

We're pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones and seeking better ways and more innovative ways to stay ahead.

And the key is we do it all together and collaboratively.

We pride ourselves on an employee-friendly environment and an amazing culture.

Clarus is a place where our #TEAM can grow in their careers, learn constantly, work together, and create great new things every single day.

How many companies give every single employee a training budget that refreshes annually or a career path that is tailored to each employee?

Clarus invests in every single employee on the team.

They believe, support, and trust the #TEAM.

Driving a Business with Employees Top of Mind

It doesn't take long for new Clarus employees to get a special feeling of pride to work for a company that values them and believes in them.

Jennifer Bittar, V.P. People Operations at Clarus, talks about this special recognition.

"I continue to be proud of the work we're doing to ensure that Clarus is a place where we can attract and retain the best people, and the people are what makes our business a success," Jennifer says. "Awards like this illustrate how people truly feel about working here and we're honored to be part of this year's list."

Thinking back to when I was a candidate for my job here at Clarus, I remember being continually impressed by the company's culture.

Now as an employee, I am continually proud to be working for a company that is employee-focused and truly believes good business starts with good employees.

Awards like this speak to Clarus's success of driving business with employees top of mind. I am honored to carry the Clarus flag.

If Clarus sounds like an interesting place to be, we're hiring! Check out our culture video below.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
