Escape 100 | Lightful listed in the Top 100 mission-led organisations to work for in 2021
We are thrilled to be part of the Escape 100 list of best purpose-led companies to escape to in 2021! 🎉
The Escape 100 is an annual campaign by Escape the City to recognise organisations that care about its employees and the planet. Their list reveals the top 100 organisations that are leading the way in putting their people and our planet on a par with profit.
15,000 organisations were assessed against six key criteria and reviewed by their employees to identify the top 100. The list marks excellence in a number of key areas including innovation, impact, environmental concern, and most importantly, employee engagement.
Commenting on Lightful’s selection, Vinay Nair, CEO & Co-Founder, said:
“We are so honoured to have been selected! Our team has responded individually and collectively in exceptional ways throughout these challenging times. My wonderful colleagues keep our values and working principles central to what we do and how we do it. As our team grows further, to be officially recognised by Escape the City as one of the “Top 100 businesses to escape to in 2021” is an incredible feeling for every single one of us. I also want to note just how great it is to be with a group of 99 other wonderful purpose-led organisations — all of us are resolved to ensure that culture and impact align with financial growth and success. This is more important than ever, and I’d like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the judging panel at ESC for giving Lightful this recognition.”
When asked about what it means to be named as a top 100 organisation to work for in 2021, Isabella Grable, Director of Human Resources, said:
“It is amazing to work with people who identify with our mission and care about our culture and team values.

As the world tackles some of society’s greatest challenges, from climate crisis to global health, the collective effort to bridge gender gaps in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) becomes ever more crucial. The global community recently marked the International Day of Women and Girls in Science which celebrates the invaluable contributions of women and girls to the economic development of the world.
In an era where climate change is one of the greatest challenges to our planet, the voices of environmental nonprofits need to be amplified louder than ever. Lightful believes in the power of digital to elevate climate justice, and we believe that every organisation deserves the skills, tools, and confidence to fully leverage digital to enhance their mission.
Lightful has been selected for The Escape 100, a well-known campaign highlighting the top purpose-led organisations to ‘escape to’ in 2023!
In the last couple of years, almost all employers have been debating where, when and how their teams should be working together. Like everyone, the Lightful team quickly adapted to the new normal that the pandemic thrust us into.
