Perks and Programs

We asked Brand Value Accelerator to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Professional Development Benefit: We provide each BVAccel team member with a quarterly budget for continuing education. Our “Optimize Inward” value attracts lifelong learners to our team and encourages all of our team members to pursue continued experience and skill set growth in their particular area of expertise.
  • Paid Parental Leave: As we continue to grow, we are focused on becoming a more parent-friendly team. We recently rolled out a gender-neutral Paid Parental Leave program focused on providing new parents on the team great financial support during such a demanding life transition (12 weeks paid leave for new parents).
  • Monthly Godzilla Award: Each month our team nominates team members who are colossal, larger-than-life examples of our core values. This gives us an opportunity to celebrate each other monthly and acknowledge accomplishments while also awarding winning team members with a nice cash benefit.
  • Culture Team: We’ve set up an amazing cross-departmental team of leaders focused on proactively crafting and steering our company culture. This team engages in initiatives related to recruiting, onboarding, learning and development, industry influence and more.
  • Industry Meet-Ups: BVAccel regularly hosts Shopify meet-ups in our San Diego office, providing an opportunity for industry learning and networking, as well as allowing us to give back to community via thought leadership.
