Pally has been selected for the Impact Fifty Award - Emerging Companies
Pally has been recognised as one of the most impactful companies to work for and awarded the Impact Fifty Award 2023. Impact Fifty recognises only 50 companies for their commitment to creating a workplace environment where all employees feel they are making a genuine impact on an important cause.
Impact Fifty is the latest series by Hyer, deep diving into the world of impact and beyond. Exploring the most meaningful places to work and going behind the scenes to meet the most defining companies.
Pally is a social discovery platform that helps people find their new best friend. As adults, it gets progressively harder to meet new people, and in this world of remote working it's even worse. Following the pandemic, the latest data shows that 55% of Londoners are lonely and 20% of Americans have less than 2 friends. Loneliness is a major crisis that leads to depression and increased suicide rates.
Pally solves this by bringing deeply compatible people together around an event or activity. They consider your identity, values, personality, lifestyle, and interests to make only the best introductions and recommendations. With a social psychologist on the team, they truly know what matters when building friendships. Pally's vision is for everyone to feel like they belong, wherever they are in the world. The app has exploded in London, and Pally plans to launch in new cities across the UK and the US.

The culture behind Pally
"Our culture is built on radical humanity. This means we consider the human above all else; whether that's our colleague, customer, partner, or investor. Despite the popular phrase, business is personal. A company is just a piece of paper; the humans within it are what makes it real. It is the humans that change the world, not the piece of paper.
In practice, this means we value trust, authenticity, individualism, and vulnerability. We seek to understand each other for the flawed humans that we all are, and do our best to support each other through the best and worst times. We come together to solve hard problems. When things go wrong we blame the system, not each other. We work incredibly hard, but on our own terms.
Ultimately, we're building a world-leading culture that does things genuinely differently. We live and die based on our relationships, and that's reflected in every behaviour."
