VSC, the award-winning public relations firm behind over 650 venture-backed startups that has produced 20 unicorns, 53 exits and four IPOs, was named one of Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers in 2022. The annual list recognizes employers that are setting the standard for distributed work.
“Remote work has diversified our talent, given our team back precious time otherwise wasted on commuting, and connected people who never would have crossed paths to make our work even more impactful,” said VSC founder and CEO Vijay Chattha.
The Best Companies for Remote Workers award is based on evaluation of survey responses distributed to remote employees. Quartz assessed company practices and measured employee satisfaction in areas including leadership, pay and benefits, training and development, corporate culture, communication and overall engagement.
“Supporting our employees' personal and professional wellbeing is a priority, so we've invested in wellness stipends, home office perks, increased sick leave, and unlimited PTO. For those who prefer to switch up their routine and meet colleagues, we have access to WeWork all over the country,” noted VSC Partner and Head of People and Operations, Anne Sophie Hurst. “Annual retreats to places like Hawaii and regional meetups throughout the year keep us culturally connected and let the team spend downtime together.”
The recognition comes on the heels of the recently announced VSC Ventures, a $21M fund that will invest in startups creating innovative solutions across three main categories: the future of work, the future of wellness, and the future of world-saving climate technology.
VSC has more employees in 15 states, two countries and five time zones and offers perks and policies including unlimited vacation days, 100 percent paid sick/mental health days, sabbaticals after four and eight years, stipends for wellness, bonding, home office set-up, phone, co-working, and more. The firm has contributed to building some of the most recognizable brands in technology such as Poshmark, Tonal, Mammoth Biosciences, Outdoorsy, Vibrant Planet, Sesame Solar, Honeybook, Fastly, TRIPP and more.
