We’re celebrating small businesses that go the extra mile for their teams. Our CEO Josh drove cross-country to learn the secrets of their success — and now, we want to share them with you.


I’m Josh and I’m the CEO and co-founder of Gusto. On April 23rd, I’ll be hopping in an RV and going on a coast-to-coast road trip to visit small businesses.

See why we’re going cross-country!

As Gusto has grown to help over 40,000 small businesses nationwide run payroll, offer benefits, and take care of HR, I haven’t been able to talk to as many customers as I used to when we were smaller. I miss hearing what motivates entrepreneurs, business owners, and employees, and I want to meet with people face-to-face again.

Along the way, I’ll be giving 11 local businesses a Gusto Extra Mile Award to celebrate the exceptional ways they go above and beyond for their employees. I’ll uncover how small businesses have built thriving companies, plus figure out what Gusto – and others – could do to help them.

Follow @GustoHQ on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to ride along with us.

See you out there,
Josh Reeves, CEO and co-founder of Gusto
