LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FIGS, the direct-to-consumer company transforming healthcare apparel, has been named one of Built In’s 2021 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The annual award recognizes companies with exceptional diversity and culture, a focus on social impact, competitive compensation and other employee benefits.
“FIGS was founded with a purpose — to serve those who serve others. Fulfilling this mission starts with our people. We are proud of our diverse, inclusive, equitable and supportive team that fosters a culture of belonging driven by creativity and purposeful innovation,” said Trina Spear, Co-CEO and Co-founder of FIGS. “As we continue to grow rapidly, we are proactive in ensuring that every single person at FIGS has a platform to be seen, heard and celebrated. We are honored to be recognized for these efforts.”
Co-founders Heather Hasson and Trina Spear started FIGS to completely transform the antiquated healthcare apparel industry that was previously defined by boxy, itchy and ill-fitting scrubs. The company’s innovative, comfortable and supremely functional medical apparel helps modern healthcare professionals feel good and perform at their best. Every set of FIGS scrubs features proprietary FIONx fabric with Silvadur™ antimicrobial technology for odor control and fabric durability, and four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, anti-wrinkle and ridiculously soft properties.
Built In’s Best Places to Work award recognizes companies of all sizes, nationwide and in the eight key tech talent markets in the country, including Austin, the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Los Angeles, New York City and Seattle. Winners are selected based on their employee compensation, benefits and cultural programs. To reflect shifts in workplace culture and employee expectations, this year’s awards focused more on remote opportunities and programs for programs for diversity, equity and inclusion.
“These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet the changing needs of employees,” said Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”
FIGS is transforming the healthcare apparel industry by creating premium quality medical apparel and by selling directly to healthcare professionals. The company developed its proprietary, performance-oriented fabric technology to meet the unique demands of the healthcare profession.
