- Forbes – One of America’s Best Startup Employers 2021, 2022, 2023
Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify the top employers from a list of over 2,600 up-and-coming American businesses. The list features companies that were founded between 2011 and 2018 and employ at least 50 people, and that were established independently, rather than being launched from an existing enterprise. To determine the list, each organization was evaluated based on three criteria: Employer reputation, based on a review of articles, blogs and social media posts pertaining to each employer, searching for specific phrases, such as “corporate culture,” “diversity,” and “employee engagement.”; Employee satisfaction evaluated from online reviews; and Growth, as examined by the organizations’ website traffic and head counts over a two-year period. The Best Startup Employers have been identified by analyzing more than 7 million datapoints. The data is gathered via a social listening campaign and extensive desk research. All data was gathered in Q4 of 2022. In the first step of a gradual approach, organic growth and size were considered to narrow down an initial longlist of more than 10,000 companies to 2,600 companies that qualified for the in-depth analysis.
