An Insider's view of Freshworks

What are some social events your company does?

Freshworks provides a variety of social events, but my favorites are through our "Freshworks Women 360" group, whose mission is to inspire, empower, and cultivate a diverse group of women. Recently, we planted trees in the Bay Area, and shared favorite recipes to create our own cookbook.


Mid-Market Account Executive

What makes someone successful on your team?

The most successful individuals on my team are highly motivated self-starters who can think both strategically and tactically in building new pipeline and winning deals. But most importantly, we are one team. While friendly competition helps drive us - our ability to collaboratively work together and exceed team goals is what makes us successful.


Senior Sales Leader

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

To me, creativity comes from empowerment. You can't command creativity out of a team, but you can nurture and guide them towards being their best selves by making it ok to fail, learn, and grow.  Gentle nudging, and even sometimes hard talks about expectations, along with celebrating your people's big wins tends to make people reach for more.

We provide refreshing software that your teams will love. All our products are ready to go, easy to use, and offer great value to any type of business.
