San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal Name Udemy in Annual Awards of Bay Area Large Businesses
SAN FRANCISCO – May 11, 2021 – Udemy, a leading destination for learning and teaching online, has been recognized as a winner of the 2021 “Bay Area Best Places to Work,” an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. The award recognizes Bay Area companies with strong company cultures who maintain high levels of employee satisfaction. This is the fifth year Udemy has been ranked on the annual list.
“We believe that engaged employees help drive company performance, and we wouldn’t be able to achieve our mission of improving lives through learning without our incredible Udemates,” said Cara Brennan Allamano, SVP of People, Places, and Learning at Udemy. “Over the past year of remote work, we’ve prioritized new wellbeing benefits and employee growth opportunities. We’re thrilled that our employees value these benefits and helped make us one of the best places to work in the Bay Area.”
As an online learning marketplace, Udemy’s business is inherently focused on personal and professional development. Udemy offers unlimited free courses to all employees as a benefit, and some employees are also Udemy instructors. Udemy also has DEAL (Drop Everything And Learn) Hour, which enables all employees to dedicate time during work to learn new skills and explore their passions.
For the award, applicants were evaluated and ranked across five categories according to the number of Bay Area employees. The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation, benefits offerings, and other amenities as well as management practices.
