SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Udemy (Nasdaq: UDMY), a leading online skills marketplace and learning platform, today announced its inclusion on Built In’s prestigious annual list of Best Places to Work, ranking no. 17 on this year’s list of top U.S. employers. For the second consecutive year, Udemy was recognized as an employer of choice across all of its regional office hubs, taking home a total of eight Built In Best Places to Work awards.
“At Udemy, we are dedicated to transforming lives through learning and that starts with our employees,” said Karen Fascenda, Chief People Officer at Udemy. “We aim to cultivate a positive environment that encourages curiosity, being courageously experimental and celebrating the diversity of perspectives within our team. Fostering an equitable and inclusive environment that enables our employees to bring their whole selves to work is a non-negotiable for us and it’s something we’re deeply proud of. We’re so honored that Built In has chosen to recognize our commitment to our employees and the collaborative spaces we’ve created across all of our regional hubs.”
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 continue to value flexible and remote work options along with strong diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programming, these criteria weighed heavily in the selection process for the list of 2024 honorees.
“I’d like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2024 Best Places to Work winners,” said Maria Christopoulos Katris, Founder and CEO at Built In. “I am truly inspired by these companies that have risen to the challenge of fostering a positive work environment, maintaining a strong brand and ensuring employee satisfaction. The future is filled with promise, and we are so excited to see what lies ahead.”
Udemy is committed to continuing to make progress toward all the aspects of belonging, equity, diversity and inclusion (BEDI) through equitable hiring, balanced retention, internal mobility and leadership development opportunities. Additionally, through its eight employee resource groups (ERGs), Udemy strives to foster a deep sense of community and advocacy for underrepresented groups.
The company also takes a holistic approach to its benefit offerings through its Whole U programming, providing employees with access to an expansive range of best-in-class benefits such as: extended bereavement leave, gender-affirming medical coverage and concierge support, comprehensive reproductive care including menopause care support and a family building reimbursement, and learning credits for employees so that they can continue to develop themselves personally and professionally in a way that they feel works best for them.
