SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Matterport, Inc., the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, which has entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination with Gores Holdings VI (NASDAQ: GHVI, GHVIU, and GHVIW), today announced that Matterport is among the Top 50 small/mid-sized companies to receive a 2021 Comparably Best Company Leadership award.
"The Best Leadership category highlights the relationship between executives and their employees," said Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar. "Having a healthy and inspired workplace is a testament to great leadership. Congratulations to Matterport's executive team."
"We are pleased to receive this recognition, based on rankings by our employees, a testament to our leaders and their vision," said Jean Barbagelata, Chief People Officer at Matterport.

As we emerge into a new world of work, we are leading the way in terms of our innovative hybrid workplace strategy. It takes extraordinary leaders and bold thinking to make this happen."
Comparably's Best Leadership Team category focuses on how positive Matterport's executives were rated by employees. Feedback was anonymously collected during a 12-month voting period between July 2020 and July 2021. The final ratings were derived from the sentiments in employee comments and compared to 60,000 U.S. companies. After review, Comparably identifies the best companies that nurture culture, diversity and leadership. Comparably has found top-rated leadership teams regularly demonstrate qualities like empathy, open-mindedness, transparency, vision and mission-driven.
In April 2021, Matterport was ranked among the top 50 small- to mid-sized companies with the Best Company Outlook by Comparably. Winners were narrowed down from 10 million ratings across 60,000 North American companies. Employees were asked questions, including around their confidence in the future success of Matterport and how likely they would be to recommend working at Matterport to a friend.
Matterport continues to focus on employee success and wellbeing and views strong leadership as a key part in driving this. The leadership team is also committed to enabling a meaningful and flexible work from anywhere policy as it continues to expand globally.
