2U, Inc. Receives 2015 Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award for Best Places to Work for Second Consecutive Year
LANDOVER, Md. (December 10, 2014) – 2U Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU), a leading provider of cloud-based software-as-a-service solutions for leading nonprofit colleges and universities to deliver online degree programs, today announced that it has been honored for the second consecutive year with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the top 50 Best Places to Work in 2015 among small-and-medium-sized companies.
Now in its seventh year, the Employees’ Choice Awards program relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company reviews survey. This year’s award to 2U follows previous honors from Glassdoor, including 2U having been named as one of the Best Places to Work in 2014 in the small-and-medium-sized businesses category, as well as 2U CEO and Co-Founder Chip Paucek having been recognized as one of the Highest Ranking CEOs of 2014.
“2U’s success is driven by a talented group of employees who work hard and have fun while sharing a deep commitment to deliver the world’s best education experience for the students in the programs we support,” said Paucek. “At 2U, we believe every day should be a holiday and every meal a feast – and we fully embrace the passion our employees have for the company and what we do.”
“I am proud to celebrate the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award winners in earning this tremendous achievement, ” said Glassdoor Co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. “Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences. It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 13, 2013, and November 2, 2014. To be considered for the small-and-medium-sized category, a company must have less than 1,000 employees and have received at least 20 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
