Buffer Recognized as one of Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers 2021

Buffer listed #21 on Quartz’s Best Medium-Sized Companies for Remote Workers in 2021

Buffer is honored to have been included in this inaugural group selected as Quartz's Best Companies for Remote Workers. As a company that has been fully distributed for nearly a decade, the Buffer team has been focused on building a company where teammates can live and work from wherever they feel happiest and most productive and sharing best practices so that their customers and community can do the same. 

As Quartz’s executive editor, Heather Landy, said, “The future of remote work hinges on how adaptive and innovative companies are willing to be.” She added, “These are companies that are making it easy for employees to work from anywhere, encouraging them to get away from work when they need to, and offering great perks and practices for remote workers so they can do it all.” 

Buffer has gone beyond simply being a remote company, however, and is pushing the envelope on other forward-thinking approaches to work as well. Most recently, Buffer adopted a four-day work week in May 2020 and has not looked back. When talking about this shorter work week when it first came about in mid-2020, Buffer’s CEO, Joel Gascoigne, said, “This four-day work week period is about well-being, mental health, and placing us as humans and our families first. […] This isn’t about us trying to get the same productivity in fewer days.” He went on to share that “One of my goals as CEO for this period of time is to put people over profit.”
