(NASDAQ: TWOU), a leading provider of cloud-based software-as-a-service technology fused with technology-enabled services that enables leading nonprofit colleges and universities to deliver their degree programs online, announced that for the second consecutive year 2U CEO and co-founder Chip Paucek has been honored as one of the Highest Ranked CEOs in the U.S. at small and medium-sized companies. The ranking, provided by Glassdoor, an online career and workplace community, relies on the feedback of employees from each CEO's company through Glassdoor's anonymous online review survey.
"I share this award with every 2U employee because, together, we are building a successful company that is making an impact by proving online education can deliver outcomes for students that equal or surpass what is offered on campus," said Paucek. "What we do is not easy and I don't take for granted the exceptional contributions that happen across 2U on a daily basis. At the end of the day, it's not about me at all. It's about this amazing, talented and passionate team."
Paucek received a 93 percent approval rating from 2U employees. This second consecutive recognition follows previous awards by Glassdoor, which named 2U as the Top 20 Best Medium-Sized Companies to Work for in both 2014 and 2015.
