As the workplace continues to evolve, some teams are considering a return to the office. Many have adopted a best-of-both-worlds policy that combines the flexibility of remote work with collaborative nature of in-office work — in other words, a hybrid workplace. These companies need to distinguish themselves as great places to work to get the attention of exceptional job seekers looking for a hybrid environment.
Built In’s Best Places to Work awards program has, since its inception, leveraged its algorithm to analyze employer data on total rewards to determine the best places to work across the United States. This year, we’re also specifically recognizing the best companies with hybrid environments to work for with our 100 Best Hybrid Places to Work list.
Each of these companies is offering the mission, work and benefits that hybrid job seekers look for. Read on to for insight into what makes these organizations, in alphabetical order, so enticing.
