Company culture: easily defined by a few words, but not as easy to maintain. When done right, company culture reverberates throughout an organization, allowing people to truly work while feeling fulfilled. In fact, company culture is important to 46% of job seekers.
So, how do you find those golden egg companies that embody the future of work? Here are some tips to find companies that’ll align with future of work values:
- Use Angelist to find startups that are remote-friendly
Startups generally tend to be more remote-friendly than bigger organizations. Angellist is a way to search, apply, and follow upcoming startups. To get started, you’ll need to create a profile and then you’re one click away from applying. No cover letters are needed and you’ll be able to directly message founders, as opposed to communicating with a third party recruiter.
- Follow companies you admire on LinkedIn
Have a company you’ve been eyeing? Follow the said company on LinkedIn for the latest on job postings. Go even further by connecting with recruiters at the company, as sometimes jobs are posted by recruiters at the company before they’re officially posted.
- Hired (for tech roles only)
Hiring with a twist! With Hired, “create a free profile and let companies apply to interview you.” Hired works by using its algorithm to match you to the right jobs. The best part? Companies must be transparent about salary and can view candidate wishlists. It’s hiring that takes the candidate into account, which is what the future of work should embody; an inclusive movement.
Not only is it free, but you can hide your info from current and past employers.
- Follow ‘fun’ companies on social media
Social media may seem like an odd place to find a job, but your dream company may be already creating content. Companies may create Instagram Reels to attract innovative talent. For example, Constellation Agency positions itself as being a fun place to work by creating playful content. It’s simple: show candidates you’re a great place to work and they’ll want to apply.
- Great Place To Work List
Great Place To Work considers itself a “global authority on workplace culture.” Each year, it compiles a list of great workplaces, ranging from large to small companies. In 2022, Great Place To Work surveyed 280,000 employee opinions to come up with 100 winners. For an even wider scope, Great Place To Work also features a list of the best companies to work at in the world. Scan the list of winners, read up on the companies of interest, and be sure to keep them on your radar.
