Offensive Security, the leading provider of hands-on cybersecurity training and certification, today announced it has been named as one of the honorees on Quartz’s first-ever global ranking of the Best Companies for Remote Workers. The program honors 54 companies providing outstanding benefits and work culture for remote employees around the world and across various industries. Offensive Security ranked 15th in the medium employer category.
“Offensive Security has been leading the way in remote work since its founding in 2006,” said Ning Wang, CEO, Offensive Security. “While this ‘new normal’ is new to some it has been standard operating procedure for us for quite a while. Being named to Quartz’s Best Companies for Remote Workers list is an honor and we appreciate being recognized for the work we’ve done trouble-shooting remote work environments for the industry. We look forward to expanding our team with more talented employees who are looking to work for an outstanding remote company.”
Quartz has covered the remote revolution from its slow, early stages to the extraordinary events of 2020. The team at Quartz envisions a future where jobs are as mobile as the workers who fill them, where creating a productive and welcoming environment for remote staff is a business priority, and where real career growth is untethered from proximity to a particular office building. Quartz’s Best Companies for Remote Workers was launched in 2021 to recognize the companies that are already building this future. The global ranking is based on employee surveys conducted by the Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work. Additional support was provided by advisory partner Doist.
Offensive Security’s award-winning company culture is driven by the firm belief that an employee’s happiness is critical to the quality of their work, as is their mental and physical health. The company encourages remote workers to take lunch breaks, go out for walks during the day, walk their dogs, spend time with their kids after they finish their schoolwork, and more. Offensive Security is unconcerned with when their employees are online or off. All that matters is the end result and employees are urged to take advantage of the flexibility of remote work and strike a balance between personal and work life.
“The future of remote work hinges on how adaptive and innovative companies are willing to be,” says Quartz executive editor Heather Landy. “That’s why Quartz’s first-ever global list of the best companies for remote workers is so important. It showcases who is leading the way—across every time zone. These are companies that are making it easy for employees to work from anywhere, encouraging them to get away from work when they need to, and offering great perks and practices for remote workers so they can do it all.”
