ERGs at Squarespace
At Squarespace, our Diversity & Inclusion efforts focus on uplifting the experiences and perspectives of our underrepresented employees and doing the work that draws out the best in all of us. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are one way we ensure we do this.
ERGs were formalized at Squarespace in August of 2018, although our employees were building community long before we launched our ERG Program. As of today, we have 11 ERGs with chapters across our office locations. ERGs are crucial to fostering a diverse, inclusive, equitable and culturally connected workplace. By creating a
supportive community for their members, sharing their community with the company through events and programming, and by acting as strategic partners to maximize business impact, they are an increasingly important part of our culture and growth as a company.
Learning & Development at Squarespace
Squarespace aims to create a learning culture where employees can develop new skills and continuously grow. Our Learning & Development offerings accelerate employees’ career development and help set them up for success as their roles evolve. Through a blend of in-person and virtual classroom development experiences, self-paced learning resources, and individual coaching, as well as team effectiveness solutions, Squarespace’s robust L&D program enables employees to perform at their best. As we continue to grow, you can expect a rich blend of learning opportunities that both inspire and educate.
Squarespace’s Flexible Work Policy outlines two distinct work classifications - Officespace and Homespace - designed to help foster an inclusive and collaborative environment. In the same way that there isn’t a one size fits all solution for our customers, there isn’t a one size fits all approach that will work for every individual and every role. So we have empowered individuals, their managers, and department leaders to determine the appropriate approach to flexible work for them. The type of flexibility needed will vary based on the role - with consideration for whether the role needs to have face to face collaboration and interaction, and the ability for that role to be done remotely vs. in the office.
Squarespace’s Family Leave Policy underscores its support for the modern-day family, no matter what shape that family takes. To provide employees and their families with the time they need during such an important moment in their lives, we offer a generous, fully paid leave period. We know that no two families' needs are alike, so we offer the opportunity to stagger parental leave within one year of the child’s birth, adoption, or custody, as well as flexible working arrangements during the transition back to work.
Squarespace offers 20 weeks for primary and non-primary caregivers to be used the birth and adoption of a child, to care for a sick family member, or for time off if your spouse has to go on military leave.
