New York real estate marketplace StreetEasy, which is owned by the Zillow Group was recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in New York State in 2016, ranking third out of 45 among small/medium employers.
The annual awards, part of a program run by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management, identify and honor places of employment in New York whose practices benefit the state's businesses, economy and workforce.
This is the second straight year that StreetEasy has earned inclusion on the Best Places to Work in New York State list and the award is just one of a growing list of accolades StreetEasy has received based on its work practices and employee satisfaction.
Most recently, StreetEasy was recognized among the top 100 companies on Crain's New York Business magazine's 2015 list of the Best Places to Work in New York City.
Qualities which helped the company retain its title comprise perks enjoyed by employees that support healthy living and team bonding, including weekly catered lunches, biweekly happy hours and complimentary MTA unlimited ride MetroCards® and Citi Bike memberships.
Growth is encouraged through monthly on-site 'Lunch & Learns', where employees are invited to hear leaders speak about their individual roles, offering insight into all areas of the business.
StreetEasy also provides biannual Mind, Body, Spirit days, with activities like yoga, spin class and relaxing chair massages.
As part of Zillow Group, which houses a portfolio of leading real estate and home-related brands, StreetEasy offers employee benefits that have been recognized as some of the most impressive in the country, including Glassdoor's list of the Top 20 Employee Benefits and Perks for providing free overnight breastmilk shipping to nursing mothers on business trips.
Competitive employee benefits also include discretionary time off, 16 weeks of fully paid maternity leave, plus eight weeks of parental leave, as well as pet insurance.
Additionally, Zillow Group CEO Spencer Rascoff was recently awarded Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEO recognition for 2016, with an approval rating of 94 percent based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Zillow Group employees shared on Glassdoor® over the past year.
