South San Francisco, Calif. – November 17, 2022 AKASA™, the leading developer of AI for healthcare operations, has been recognized by Quartz as one of the 2022 Best Companies for Remote Workers. Quartz recognized more than 83 companies that understand the needs of the remote workforce, provide their teams with the tools necessary to do their jobs wherever they are, and created a positive distributed workplace that embraces diversity and flexibility.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Quartz for this award,” said Malinka Walaliyadde, co-founder and CEO of AKASA. “Since we transitioned to a remote workplace in 2020, we have been able to hire amazing talent across the U.S., fueling our efforts to build the future of healthcare with AI.”

The companies were selected based on a two-part survey, which was conducted by the independent research firm Best Companies Group: an employer questionnaire about the company’s policies and practices made up about 25% of the overall score, and a survey of the company’s remote employees counted for the remaining 75%.

To make the final list, employers had to receive at least 80% positive responses to the employee survey across eight categories: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communication, role satisfaction, work environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits, and overall engagement.

“Companies at the vanguard of remote work helped show everyone else how to do it. Now we are seeing their best practices replicated across industries, at companies of all sizes,” said Quartz executive editor Heather Landy. “The companies on our ranking are putting their remote policies to use as a recruiting and retention play, as a tool for diversifying their talent pool, and as a performance strategy. Our second annual ranking honors businesses that have gone above and beyond in ensuring that their remote workers have the tools they need, from technology stipends to wellness perks, to do their jobs effectively.”
