SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Chegg, Inc. (CHGG), the Student Hub, has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2015 in the SMB category. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its seventh year, 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.
“Putting students first, improving their outcomes, and disrupting the dysfunction in higher ed is both hard and deeply satisfying work,” said Dan Rosensweig, President and CEO of Chegg. “Receiving the Glassdoor Employee’s Choice award reflects the passion that everyone at Chegg has for helping students save time, save money and get smarter, and I am very proud to be a part of this team.”
Beyond the everyday perks such as free lunches, on-site gym, and flexible time off policy, Chegg has created a culture of transparency where everyone feels comfortable asking questions of the leadership team during our monthly All Hands meetings. As a student-first company, Chegg also has a fast feedback culture which is supported through in-house workshops, Lunch’n Learns, Tuition Reimbursements, and our inspiring #CheggChat series where celebrated authors, entrepreneurs, athletes and other notable figures have shared their leadership advice with the entire team.
“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 Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
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 SMB 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.
