Led by founder and CEO Philip James, Firstleaf has remote employees located in over 80 cities around the world. Firstleaf fosters a strong company culture which is prioritized throughout the organization including weekly company-wide town halls and annual offsites in cities across the U.S. and South America. These events help employees stay connected and attain impactful relationships and team building across various departments within the company.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of the companies for Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers award," said CEO and Founder Philip James. "Firstleaf became a fully remote company in 2020, and we pride ourselves on being able to work successfully no matter where we are in the world. Our company culture and employees' work-life balance have been a priority to me since I started this company, and I'm glad that we can continue to offer flexibility to our team. While we all aren't in the same office together, we continue to work seamlessly as a team to bring the best wine to our members."

Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers award is an opt-in global ranking that assesses company practices and measures employee satisfaction in areas including leadership, pay and benefits, training and development, corporate culture, communication, and overall engagement. The online surveys were conducted by the Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work.

"Companies at the vanguard of remote work helped show everyone else how to do it. Now we are seeing their best practices replicated across industries, at companies of all sizes," said Quartz executive editor Heather Landy. "The companies on our ranking are putting their remote policies to use as a recruiting and retention play, as a tool for diversifying their talent pool, and as a performance strategy. Our second annual ranking honors businesses that have gone above and beyond in ensuring that their remote workers have the tools they need, from technology stipends to wellness perks, to do their jobs effectively."
