List honors the industry’s small, medium and large companies for excellence in innovation and workplace culture
SILICON SLOPES, Utah – May 15, 2019 – Lendio, the nation’s leading marketplace for small business loans, was named to Fortune’s 60 Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance. This year’s ranking by Fortune, and research partner Great Place to Work, includes companies in the industry focused on innovation by all. Lendio’s ranking is based on extensive ratings provided by its employees in anonymous surveys. A summary of these ratings can be found here.
To determine the 2019 Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing over 726,000 employees. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on employees’ assessments of employer trust and reaching their full potential within the organization. The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences regarding innovation, company values and the effectiveness of company leaders.
“Fortune and Great Place to Work recognize that great business leaders empower every member of their team to innovate and grow,” said Brock Blake, CEO and founder of Lendio. “While innovation is critical in the financial services space, we realize that employee engagement and trust are paramount.”
In November 2018, Lendio was certified for the third consecutive year as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work. According to the assessment, 94 percent of Lendio employees say it is a great workplace. Employees rated challenges, atmosphere and pride as the most significant factors in their workplace satisfaction. Of those surveyed, 98 percent said they feel a sense of pride in what the company accomplishes.
“A lot of companies are focused on nice-to-haves like catered lunches and chair massages,” said Candice Smith, Account Manager at Lendio. “Lendio is focused on helping every employee reach their full potential—that is what makes our workplace truly special.”
“Prioritizing workplace culture is critical to reaching our goals as a company. It cannot be neglected,” said Blake. “As Lendio sets its sights on future innovation and growth, we remain focused on creating an atmosphere where employees feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.”
