GBL Access

We use research to find that sweet spot where worker wellbeing and business interests intersect. Our shared vision of making this a norm brings us all together.

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the evolving global situation, we are trying our best to provide wellbeing support to our employees. We’re also exploring digital team-building activities to stay motivated and connected with each other. We are happy to share our insights on what’s working and what’s not with anyone who reaches out. We have asked all our employees to prioritize their mental and physical health. That means deadlines have been relaxed where possible, and more frequent check-ins with managers are being organized--to balance organizational needs related to productivity and performance with the long-term wellbeing of the GBL family.


We’re happy to make open-source our internal resource with a validated internal resource on validated therapists and counselors (many of whom are offering services for free or at a subsidized rate for online consultations) in India. We've also included anti-caste, queer-friendly, disabled-friendly mental health care service links. We hope this helps our wider community.


Last, there are some urgent hiring needs which you can find below. Through all this uncertainty and turbulence, we are more motivated than ever before about our work.
