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.

This data was true as of January 2021 when I originally gathered it (more info about this in my blog). It is not woefully out of date and I recommend instead viewing the entire list of companies instead.
