We’re delighted to announce that Reuseabox has been selected for The Escape 100, a well-known campaign highlighting the top 100 purpose-led organisations to ‘escape to’ in 2023!
Beating some 13,000 other company nominations, we are over the moon to be the only East Midlands company to rank in the top 100. This is thanks to our inspiring mission, positive impact and flexible working environment. We also rank alongside social enterprise giants like Too Good To Go, Origin Coffee, Rude Health, FLOWN, City to Sea, HereWeFlo and Finisterre.
What is the Escape 100 campaign?
The Escape 100 campaign was started by Escape the City. While on their mission to help 1,000,000 quit their corporate jobs and find work that matters to them and the world, they began to wonder: what actually makes an organisation different, forward-thinking, and impactful? They came up with a scoring system of 6 criteria (Impact, People, Mission, Planet, Innovation and B-Corp) to rank companies, including anonymous employee reviews. And ‘The Escape 100’ was born.
This campaign comes at a key moment in working history. Since the pandemic started, employees all over the world have been given time to think about what really matters to them. They are increasingly prioritising finding new meaningful, flexible and forward-thinking work environments (as reported by The Times). In Escape the City’s recent survey of 1500 job-seekers, 89% want a career with a clear sense of purpose (up from 71% in 2015). 73% said that their reflection time during the pandemic has made them reevaluate their path. Furthermore, for 74% of professionals, a flexible working location is the primary barometer they use when choosing a new role.
Dom Jackman, Founder of Escape the City, explained further:
“The job market is still dealing with the impact of the pandemic, and job seekers will have to work harder than ever to find opportunities that align with their values. This list has been designed to rank organisations on the metrics that really matter. What are they doing to save our planet? How do they look after their people? What problems are they solving? These are all things that job seekers want to know in 2023, and we hope this list helps talented people discover interesting opportunities and organisations that they might not have found otherwise.”
Ellie Good, Chief Purpose Officer commented on what the campaign means to us:
“At Reuseabox we’re incredibly proud to be selected as one of the 100 Top Organisations to Escape to 2023! As a purpose-driven brand that has recently become a B Corp, we work hard to ensure our employees’ well-being is one of our top priorities and we’re so happy to have this recognised by Escape the City.”
