Skift Take

At Skift, we believe innovation means constantly coming up with new ways and perspectives of looking at the world we inhabit while continuing to surprise and delight our readers and clients with new thinking and new approaches to the sectors we cover. This is a huge honor we take seriously as a mandate to continue on that path.

We are delighted that Skift has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019.

The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world.

According to the editors of Fast Company, Skift “has become mandatory reading not only for travel industry insiders, but technologists, trend forecasters, airline strategists, marketing executives, hotel operators, aviation experts, and even civilians looking for the inside scoop.” Skift shares this honor with other travel sector companies such as Sonder, Delta Air Lines, Intrepid Group, TripActions, and others.

At Skift, we believe innovation means constantly coming up with new ways and perspectives for looking at the world we inhabit, as well as to continue to surprise and delight our readers and partners with both new thinking and new approaches to the sectors we cover.

As the consumer economy moves to “experiences, not things,” Skift has expanded over the last year to cover the experience and the post-experience culture, by focusing on travel, dining, and wellness together, which we believe is the best lens to understand the modern consumer.

As part of Skift’s unique, top-to-bottom editorial mission to the hold the industries it covers accountable, we find ourselves at the forefront of helping to set the agenda on global issues — from overtourism to sustainability to politics to security. Travel, restaurants, and wellness are often the first window to world trends, from simple economic swings to more impactful climate change. Skift’s tireless analysis of the impact to our industries starts a larger conversation that often leads to significant change.

This latest honor follows Skift’s selection amongst the World’s Top Startups to Work For last year by LinkedIn, as “one of 50 [startups globally] changing the way people work and live.” These consecutive awards validate the path we have taken — and the team we have built and the team that has built Skift — as the best-of-breed boutique business information company with an expansive view of the world.

If you’re interested in working with us, drop us a note at [email protected] and tell us why you want to be part of the team at Skift. We will keep you on the consideration list for relevant jobs in the coming months. One thing that’s really important to us? Our goal for our team and culture is to reflect the diversity of the globe of travelers.
