      List honors the New York metro’s most innovative, trusted and valued workplaces

      WOODBURY, NY – July 16, 2020 – Lendio, the nation’s leading marketplace for small business loans, was named one of the 2020 Best Workplaces in New York by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. The ranking considered nearly 45,000 employee surveys in the tri-state area. Lendio took the 11th spot on the list for small and medium-sized businesses. 

      To determine the list and rankings, Great Place to Work evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These elements include the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

      “It’s truly an honor to be recognized by Fortune and Great Place to Work, particularly this year when work routines and environments have been in constant flux,” said Brock Blake, CEO and co-founder of Lendio. “Our employees are critical to Lendio’s continued growth and have been vital to Lendio’s success in facilitating emergency relief loans during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

      On April 3, 2020, Lendio began facilitating Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, the emergency relief funds set aside by Congress for small businesses. Lendio has since facilitated $8 billion in PPP loan approvals for 100,000 small businesses. To accomplish this, Lendio relied not only on its dedicated full-time staff but also on 200 additional temp-to-hire employees who played a pivotal role in the execution of this relief program.

      “I love Lendio not only for our mission—helping small business owners achieve their dreams—but also for the people who make it happen,” said Lea Nill, Manager of Business Development & Partnerships at Lendio. “We are a family. Not only is Lendio invested in our career growth, but our personal growth as well. We celebrate one another’s milestones, whether they be personal or professional.”

      “Best workplaces like Lendio have built powerful foundations of trust and human connection to help carry their organizations through stressful and uncertain times, especially now,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but to do well for their businesses and for New York during these challenging times.”
