Sila honored with five Comparably awards in 2021


Sila Adds Two New Awards to 2021 Achievements: “Best Company Culture” and “Best CEO”

ALAMEDA, CALIF - DECEMBER 17, 2021 - This week, next-generation battery materials company Sila was honored with its fifth Comparably Award in 2021. Throughout the calendar year, Comparably, a platform that looks to make workplaces transparent and rewarding for both employees and employers, has placed Sila in five of their Top 50 “Best of” lists in the Small/Mid-Sized Companies category, including:

“At Sila, we are working to build a culture — that is owned by everyone — where diversity, inclusion, and collaboration underpin our common pursuit of excellence,” said Kate Martin, Sila VP, People & Culture. “We strive to ensure all Silazens' voices are heard and respected as we tackle hard problems together, so it's rewarding to see that our people are proud of what we have accomplished so far.”

Each Comparably award is based on anonymous and public employee rankings within a 12-month period. The rankings lists are separated into two categories: large companies with more than 500 employees, and small/mid-sized companies with less than 500 employees. The final lists are compiled from over 20 million rankings across 80,000 U.S. companies.

According to its company profile on the Comparably site, Sila received an A+ in culture score, receiving 4.7/5 stars in their employee ratings and reviews. The site also shows Sila CEO and Co-Founder Gene Berdichevsky secured a 91/100 rating, also based on employee reviews, which places him in the top 5% of 1,715 similar-sized companies on Comparably and in the top 5% of 410 nearby companies in San Francisco.

The Comparably Awards were developed to celebrate companies and leaders considered most outstanding in 16 different categories through feedback provided by employees, and differ from most other “best of” lists by segmenting ratings based on demographics to ensure many groups of employees are heard.
