Leap is officially one of the top 100 best companies to work for in 2021

The Escape 100, an annual campaign to recognise organisations from around the world that care about their employees and the planet, was announced recently, revealing the top 100 organisations to work for in 2021.  We’re delighted to share the news that Leap has been recognised as one of those businesses, and that yesterday evening our Managing Director Simon joined the online awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of the organisations recognised.

The list marks excellence in six key areas: innovation, mission, impact, environmental concern, B Corp status, and most importantly, employee engagement. The campaign was created by Escape the City, a platform that connects its global community of purpose-driven jobseekers with mission-led employers, because when people are doing work that matters to them, they can change the world. 

8,000 nominated organisations were assessed against six key criteria, and reviewed by their employees to identify the top 100.

“Selected based on the metrics that matter and reviewed by the people who work there.”

The final list comprises a diverse range of organisations, varying in size, industry and location, but all united as purpose-led organisations that exist to solve real world problems. Food-waste, clearing up the oceans and access to education are key themes among this year’s top 100, with food-waste fighting app Too Good to Go taking the top spot for 2021.

“We don’t just create this list for recognition’s sake. The job market is still dealing with the impact of the pandemic, and jobseekers will have to work harder than ever to find opportunities that align with their values. This list has been designed to rank organisations on the metrics that really matter. What are they doing to save our planet? How do they look after their people? What problems are they solving? These are all things that jobseekers want to know in 2021, and we hope this list helps talented people discover interesting opportunities and organisations that they might not have found otherwise.”
