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 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 (ERCs) and Employee Interest Communities (EICs) and our Community Corner — a growing virtual platform for global engagement. At our weekly company-wide sync, we share updates on our community efforts and how to get plugged in.

Committed to belonging
One of our core values is creating a space where all Box employees can “bring your (_____) self to work every day.” We take great pride in celebrating our differences, and we strive to hire the best talent from all backgrounds. We want to build teams that are as diverse as our customers and the world we live in, with a broad representation of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, backgrounds, and perspectives — among many other dimensions of diversity. By being intentional about community and belonging, we also believe we can drive even better results.
Commitment to pay equity
We hold ourselves accountable, which is why we signed the California Equal Pay Pledge. As part of our continued commitment, we conduct an annual company-wide gender pay analysis on hiring and promotion procedures to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers to equitable compensation. In addition, we externally benchmark the compensation we provide for each role to ensure pay parity, and annually provide regular pay equity updates to our Compensation Committee. Recent analyses indicate that we globally achieved pay equity across gender for employees in similar jobs (accounting for factors such as role, level, and location).
Equal parts learning and listening
Career growth opportunities based around individual needs help to build up education, experience, and job exposure. Offer 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.
Championing hybrid work
As we strive to become the world’s leading hybrid company, we want to ensure that we’re creating the best workplace experiences possible through driving effective collaboration, fostering community, and further developing relationships across teams. We blend in-person collaboration with the benefits of working remotely.
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, paid sabbatical, and virtual therapy. A founding signatory of the Invest in Parents Pledge, we extend services to families through paid parental leave, flexible hours, and fertility and family forming benefits.
