Eko, a digital health company advancing heart and lung disease detection, today announced that it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list for 2022. Inc. selected Eko after collecting data from thousands of best-in-class companies, and its annual Best Workplaces list consists of 475 honorees. These honorees represent organizations that have elevated their company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility, and redefined what it means to be a thriving workplace.
“The best way a company can bring positive change in an industry as challenging as healthcare is by building a closely connected and mission-driven team,” said Connor Landgraf, Co-founder and CEO of Eko. “With this in mind, we strive to attract the best talent and to always put our employees first. Our team has more than doubled in size in the last year, and so has our user base. As a result, Eko has expanded its reach, and millions of more patients now have the opportunity to be screened for heart disease early on.”
Since March of 2020, the COVID pandemic kept most of the Eko team physically apart. Eko quickly optimized and rolled out a hybrid work model and suite of benefits to support their employees, including work-from-home office stipends, mental health subscriptions, and telehealth options. Transparency between its leadership team and employees was crucial to this new work model: Eko held regular “all-hands” meetings, offered virtual CEO office hours, and regularly conducted employee surveys. Today, 78% of Eko’s workforce is remote, with employees in 21 states and 3 countries.
“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” said Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-chief of Inc. “Yet, given the widespread adoption of remote work, our understanding of a productive workplace has shifted, and Eko has redefined and enriched the workplace to better serve employees, customers, and ultimately, patients.”
