by PRP Group, on 01/22/2022
The company was named one of Built In’s Best Places to Work and also earned a coveted Great Place to Work Certification
(January 11, 2022) Los Angeles — TutorMe, the online tutoring solution of the future, today announced that it has earned two acclaimed workplace recognitions. The company was honored as one of Built In’s Top 100 Best Remote-First Companies Places To Work in 2022 and was also Certified™ by Great Place to Work®.
Built In’s annual Best Places to Work Awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in the eight largest tech markets across the U.S. Winners are based on an algorithm using company data about compensation, benefits, and companywide programming. The program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI, and other people-first cultural offerings.
“It is my honor to extend congratulations to the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” said Sheridan Orr, the chief marketing officer of Built In. “This year saw a record number of entrants—and the past two years fundamentally changed what tech professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
The Great Places to Work award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at TutorMe. This year, employees rated their satisfaction working for TutorMe 37% higher than the average U.S. company.
“Great Place to Work Certification isn’t something that comes easily—it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that TutorMe is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
“We are thrilled to be honored by both Built In and Great Places to Work,” said Myles Hunter, the co-founder and CEO of TutorMe. "We cultivate a people-first work culture that considers and fulfills the needs of our most important asset—our employees. It's immensely gratifying to be recognized and celebrated by these revered institutions."
