No thanks to “Business as usual” #

Teams and companies that made an effort to treat their employees humanely on Jan 6, 2021 #

In the evening of January 6, 2021, I sent out a tweet asking which companies or managers had acknowledged the day’s events. This list compiles the info from the public and private responses I received from that tweet.

This blog post provides some additional context and details for this data. But this is the crucial bit:

This is not meant to be a list of Good Companies™️. This list is not definitive proof that these companies are good places to work now or in the future.

So, what is this then? This is, specifically, a list of companies where an employee felt treated humanely enough on January 6th to reach out to me and let me know about it.

To me, that is a data point. It is interesting and worthwhile, but it also shouldn’t be overstated. It’s one employee’s experience at a very specific time. In some (most?) cases, the company leadership may not have even made any statement, but an individual’s manager or team lead did.
