Lendio (//www.lendio.com), a company that matches small businesses with financing, has been named one of Utah Business Magazine’s Best Companies to Work for in 2013.
Utah Business Magazine touts these companies as organizations that go the extra mile for their employees. As part of the process, 100 percent of Lendio employees were required to complete a confidential survey about the company’s benefits and compensation, career development opportunities, culture and environment, and management processes.
