Zedify has been selected for The Escape 100, which spotlights the top purpose-led companies to ‘escape to’ in 2022!
With a staggering 13,000 nominations this year, this win sets Zedify out as a brilliant place to develop a career with a purpose. The judges found our mission inspiring and impactful and they rated our approach to a flexible working environment. AND, we’re absolutely stoked to be ranking alongside social enterprise giants like Oddbox, OLIO, Too Good To Go, Moving Worlds and more.
The Escape 100 campaign was started by Escape the City. Their mission is to help 1,000,000 people quit the rat race and find work that matters to them and the world. Over time they found they needed to hone in on exactly what it is that makes an organisation forward-thinking, impactful and essential to a better place to work. The Escape 100 was dreamt up to help answer those questions and their super thorough scoring system of 6 criteria (Impact, People, Mission, Planet, Innovation and B-Corp) helps them rank companies, including anonymous employee reviews.
This campaign comes at a key moment in working history. Since the pandemic started, employees all over the world have been given time to think about what really matters to them, and are increasingly prioritising finding new meaningful, flexible and forward-thinking work environments (as reported by The Times). In Escape the City’s recent survey of 1500 job-seekers, 89% want a career with a clear sense of purpose (up from 71% in 2015), with 73% saying that their reflection time during the pandemic has made them reevaluate their path. Furthermore, for 74% of professionals a flexible working location is the primary barometer they use when choosing a new role.
Rob King, Zedify Co-founder & CEO, commented on what the campaign means to the company: “Making it onto The Escape 100 is fantastic! A real affirmation of our hard work to build a brilliant place to work, one that’s stock full of amazing people who are all dedicated to using business as a force for good.
Zedify are on a mission to transform urban logistics and we’re searching for a bunch more genuine, upbeat and talented people to join our team and help us deliver on our mission to be in 50 UK cities in the next 4 years”
Dom Jackman, Founder of Escape the City, explained further: “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 2022, and we hope this list helps talented people discover interesting opportunities and organisations that they might not have found otherwise.”
