Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored Continued as one of the 2021 Best Small & Medium Workplaces™.
Continued, a leading provider of online continuing education, took the ## spot out of ## featured companies on the list of medium-sized businesses. This is Continued’s fourth consecutive time to be named to this prestigious list, which recognizes the best companies to work for in the country.
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces award is based on an analysis of survey responses from more than 280,000 current employees of U.S. companies. In that survey, 99% of Continued’s team members said the company is a great place to work. At a typical U.S. company, only 59% of employees say the same.
“The Continued family is honored to receive this designation, which reflects the dedication and passion of our entire team and the culture we have built together,” said CEO Tony Perlak. “Our team makes working at Continued a truly special experience. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to make us a part of this list.”
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
“These companies may be small in size, but their impact and commitment to improving employee experience stacks up against some of the world’s largest corporations,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Their ability to scale business while maintaining a high level of employee care is nothing short of amazing. A job well done to the Best Small & Medium Workplaces.”
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“Throughout our organization, we keep culture at the forefront of all we do and attribute the organization’s success to this philosophy,” said Asher Primrose, HR Director and 2020 For All Leader recipient. “As we celebrate year four on the Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, we fully recognize the challenges team members have faced over the past year. I believe our company culture has eased some of the difficulties our work family has faced in these unprecedented times, and I am so proud to see Continued recognized again on this esteemed list.”
