Keypath Education named a Chicago Top Workplaces 2021 by The Chicago Tribune for Three Consecutive Years

CHICAGO – Nov. 4, 2021 – Keypath Education, a global EdTech company that partners with world-leading universities to create innovative and in-demand online education programs, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by The Chicago Tribune for the third year in a row.

The Top Workplaces 2021 list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

Employees shared comments including:

  • “I have the freedom to take ownership of my projects and can do so with the support of my manager and team. I get to work with some of the most intelligent people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.” – an employee in Marketing Services.
  • “You are not just an ‘employee’, but you are valued here. This is a place where you can be yourself and have opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.” – an employee in Retention Services.
  • “Keypath creates an environment where people can thrive. I love being part of a hard-working team dedicated to improving education for students across the globe.” – an employee in Instructional Services.
  • “The managers listen to ideas and complaints and work to implement or change things as needed to make our jobs more productive.” – an employee in Recruitment Services.

“This year’s award is truly extra special as it is a testament to the culture we’ve created in a completely virtual environment,” said Steve Fireng, Global CEO, Keypath Education. “We’ve moved to an employee-choice working model, allowing employees to choose if they’d like to work remote, hybrid or in-office to allow for flexibility and work-life balance. We continue to invest in our company culture to ensure it is inclusive, engaging, and supportive for everyone.”

"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."
