SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glassdoor, Inc. recognized VIPKid as one of the Best Places to Work in 2019 with a Glassdoor Award. The Glassdoor Award, now in its 11th year, reflects direct reviewer feedback on job, company and work environment satisfaction.
Many VIPKid teachers have shared their opinions voluntarily and anonymously with Glassdoor about their experience teaching on the VIPKid platform. Many have highlighted the benefits of working remotely from home and the ease with which courses can be taught. Others have expressed enthusiasm for the strong teacher community bond encouraged by VIPKid through the organization of regional “Journey conferences” where hundreds of teachers voluntarily convene for thought leadership, continual learning workshops and opportunity to network with fellow educators. “We are proud to be recognized by Glassdoor as a Best Place to Work, especially since it reflects the direct feedback of VIPKid teachers. We strive to provide teachers flexibility, professional growth opportunities, and a cultural connection to China and the world,” said VIPKid Founder and CEO Cindy Mi.
Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work used company reviews shared between October 23, 2017 and October 21, 2018 for its ranking. Glassdoor’s Economic Research Team used its proprietary algorithm to compile the final list and took into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
