It is incredibly exciting to see our employees as some of the most vocal champions of both our mission and our company.”
Best Places to Work honorees were determined by Built In’s algorithm, examining company data related to compensation and benefit offerings. Additionally, as job seekers on the Built In platform have become increasingly focused on finding workplaces that offer flexible and remote work options along with DEI programming and other people-centric offerings, this criteria also weighed heavily in the selection process for the list of 2023 honorees.
“It’s my honor to congratulate this year’s Best Places to Work winners,” said Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer at Built In. “These exemplary companies understand that their people are their most valuable asset and they’ve stepped up to meet the changing expectations of modern professionals, including a desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centric future of work and we can’t wait to see that future unfold.”
This recognition comes on the heels of several other recent workplace accolades for Udemy, including designation as a Fair Pay Workplace and being named to Great Place to Work®’s list of Best Workplaces for Parents™ and Best Workplaces for Women™.
