The complete list of top 50 organizations, selected by an independent panel of judges, was announced on June 22nd at the Inspire Work summit in New York.
We shared 39th place with Couchbase, sharing the list with major names such as Union Pacific, PepsiCo, Ocean State Job Lot, and Blue Shield of California.
Inspiring Workplaces honored us in the category of inclusion, a value deeply cemented in our workplace culture. We’re proud to offer consistent, rewarding, high-paying work to individuals who may otherwise struggle to access quality employment, whether due to location, age, physical ability, or gender. To become an editor at Proofed, candidates must complete a training course and score over 80% on the final test. This allows anyone, no matter who they are or what they have done previously, to become a Proofed editor in as little as 50 hours.
Our inclusive hiring policy and equitable operations strategy are reflected all the way up through senior management. Our operations team is 50% female, and many of us are parents, with our core team based in 13 different countries. If you’re passionate about writing, grammar, and communication, we’re proud to have you work with us, regardless of background or personal circumstances.
