Noodle, the country’s fastest-growing online learning network, announced today its inclusion in the Crain’s New York Business ranking of the 100 Best Places to Work in New York City for 2021. Noodle ranked #65 on the overall list, one of only two education companies included.
“Being named one of Crain’s 100 Best Places to Work in NYC is an awesome affirmation of our commitment to our people – we strive to take good care of Noodlers so they can all drive us toward our collective mission,” said Marianne Hoeft, VP of People, Noodle. “All Noodle employees share a common goal, which is to lower the cost of higher education while increasing access and student engagement. We do this while living our values to catalyze change, build community, demand excellence, never stop learning, and, finally, embrace joy.”
Noodle prides itself on listening to its employees’ voices and staying biased toward action when it comes to benefits and employee care. The company hosts biweekly All Hands meetings and brings the entire staff together once a year to celebrate its wins and learn from each other. Benefits include 12 weeks paid parental leave, fully remote work, education and wellness stipends, and multiple options for mental health support.
This past year, Noodle invested resources to develop a systematic and comprehensive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) strategy, which included initiatives such as a task force to create new DEI initiatives, Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) centered around community identities and representation and a Profile in Diversity interview series to celebrate employees throughout the year. Noodle will continue to broaden this work in the coming year, including expanding its talent pipeline by sourcing candidates from HBCUs, HSIs, and a variety of networks focused on increasing the number of underrepresented individuals in the edtech field.
