Hyland favorites: 30 reasons to work at Hyland

30 reasons to work at Hyland.

Thirty years ago, a couple of guys from Northeast Ohio (Packy Hyland and Miguel Zubizarreta) started a software company to help businesses manage their information. A scrappy group — many who are still at the company today — toiled away in those early years with too little sleep and a lot of grit. It’s a classic start-up story with a happy ending.

Today, Hyland is a global company with more than 4,000 employees. How did we get here?

At Hyland, we tell this story a lot, not because we think it’s particularly unique, but because it’s the foundation for who we are: hard-working helpers. It’s what fuels our relationships with our customers, our communities and each other. We are doers who lead by example and it’s how we’ve always done things. That’s #HylandLife and that’s what makes us unique.

One of the most important lessons we’ve learned in 30 years is, no matter what industry you’re in or where you work from, success is so much more attainable when you’re doing it together.

How did we get here? By creating a community of helpers. And we recruit these helpers — and keep them — by putting employees first.

Check out 30 uniquely wonderful Hyland experiences and perks that have fortified our scrappy little (okay, not so little anymore) community and helped make sure our team members feel the love.
