Austin American-Statesman Names Four Hands a Winner of the Greater Austin Top Workplaces 2021 Award


November 14, 2021 (Austin, Texas) — Four Hands, the leading global designer and wholesaler of trendsetting lifestyle home furnishings, has been awarded one of Austin American-Statesman’s 2021 Austin’s Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“Over the past 25 years, Four Hands has grown significantly and I can confidently say that our culture within the company is one of the best in Austin,” says Four Hands CEO and President Matthew Briggs. “Our team has worked hard to make sure our employees know how important they are to the company and we are proud to offer exemplary benefits, birthdays off, extended paid parental leave, and the most popular benefit of the company, a furniture purchase program. We care deeply about our employees and are committed to delivering a culture of success as we continue to grow as a company.”

Over the past six years, Four Hands has steadily increased its number of employees, more than tripling its employee count across the globe to over 600 full-time members. With over 200 employees hired in 2021 so far, Four Hands plans to hire 50 new U.S.-based team members by the end of the year. Four Hands prides itself on a company culture that promotes full transparency with team members on the state of the business and seeks growth from within, whether employees move up or across the ladder to pursue their career goals.

“As a results-driven business, our core values keep our teams on track and allow for full transparency within the company which has helped create an employee-centric culture,” says Four Hands Vice President of People and Culture Candace Bridges. “By creating a space where our employees value each other as a whole person and can lead a work-life harmony, the culture at Four Hands is constantly influencing our company’s high retention and effective recruiting efforts.”
