Grammarly Continues to Pay Staffers Who Joined Ukrainian Army

Grammarly Inc., one of the most valuable tech startups in the U.S., is continuing to pay full salaries and benefits to its employees based in Ukraine who have joined the country’s army to fight against the Russian invasion, the company’s chief executive officer said Monday.

“The team is, first and foremost, focused on their safety,” CEO Brad Hoover said, declining to specify how many of his employees had joined Ukraine’s defense effort. Prior to the war, nearly half of Grammarly’s more than 600 staffers were based in Ukraine. Hoover said many of those people have since left the country, or relocated to areas within Ukraine that are safer from conflict.
