GlobalGiving Wins Top Workplace Award For Pandemic Pivots

Washington, DC, June 18, 2021 - GlobalGiving has been named a Top Workplace by the Washington Post. The Top Workplaces were announced on June 17, 2021, at a virtual event.

“We're honored to have been named a 2021 Top Workplace by the Washington Post," said GlobalGiving CEO Alix Guerrier. "I'm incredibly grateful for our talented team and their dedication during one of the most collectively trying periods ever."

According to the Washington Post feature, "GlobalGiving is among numerous organizations and firms that were transformed, in ways small and large, by the worst year anyone can remember."

A quick transition to remote work during the pandemic, flexible working hours and health days, combined with forward-thinking leadership are among the reasons GlobalGiving was featured, according to the article.

"When do we get back to normal? The answer is never," Guerrier said during his interview with the Washington Post. "We're coming back with a spirit of creativity and flexibility," he added. "We're going to continue to examine ourselves and continue to change our norms."

As noted in the article, GlobalGiving's new normal "will consist of not only the diversity programs but also mental health policies giving the 80 employees extra time off, designated meeting-free days, and the option to work remotely or in the office."

For Alix Guerrier, it's a moment to reflect and to celebrate.

"We're an organization dedicated to making the world a better place for all -- including our employees," he said.
