Investing in people and communities

A focus on empowerment

Culture is key

We invite everyone to "bring your ____ self to work," and encourage each person to fill in the blank. That means putting our company culture first with communities that get people connected, while celebrating unique backgrounds and experiences. No matter your office location or team, you'll find ways to engage and contribute to our culture.

A welcoming workplace

We build inclusive communities that foster growth, connection, and impact. Initiatives include Employee Resource Communities events and our Community Corner — a growing virtual platform for global engagement. At our weekly All Hands, we share companywide updates on community efforts inside and outside Box along with how to get plugged in. 

Powering work for nonprofits

We started with a mission to help nonprofits attain their goals and power how the world does more good together. We are a proud Pledge 1% company, mobilizing our products, people, and resources to invest in communities we work and live in. We focus on diverse tech pipelines, improving how work gets done, and being a good neighbor.

Standing for our values

When actions go against our values, we take a stand. We have spoken out against discrimination, federal restrictions on diversity training, mistreatment of transgender individuals, the Muslim Ban, unethical immigration policies, and laws damaging to reproductive freedom. We stand in solidarity with the Black community against racism. We partner with the Justice Collective to diversify our suppliers.

Commitment to pay equity

We hold ourselves accountable, which is why we signed the California Pay Equity Pledge. As part of our commitment, we conduct an annual companywide gender pay analysis on hiring and promotion procedures to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers. Our best practices help close the pay gap and ensure fundamental equity.

Equal parts learning and listening

Career growth opportunities based around individual needs help to build up education, experience, and job exposure. Guides, on-demand training, management tracks, and seasonal sessions (now all virtual) feature specialized content that sharpens critical skills, and our annual survey gives everyone a chance to provide feedback on programs and experiences at Box. 

Employee health and safety

We keep the health and safety of our employees among our top priorities. We strive to create an environment where employees are physically and mentally healthy.

Safety first in the COVID-19 crisis

Box goes to great lengths to promote employee health and safety, especially following the emergence of COVID-19. Remote technology, robust integrations, and best-of-breed cloud applications streamlined our transition to at-home work.

Benefits for better living

Our benefits attract and retain incredible talent — and help people live their best lives. Box promotes emotional well-being through top mental healthcare, personal time off, free access to the Headspace app, and virtual therapy. A founding signatory of the Invest in Parents Pledge, we extend services to families through paid parental leave, flexible hours, fertility and family forming benefits, and Cleo services.
