CEO Brock Blake also claims top leadership award for midsized companies in the state
SILICON SLOPES, Utah – November 11, 2019 – Lendio, the nation’s largest marketplace for small business loans, has been named a 2019 Top Workplace in Utah by The Salt Lake Tribune. Lendio is ranked second among midsize companies in the state. Lendio’s CEO and founder, Brock Blake, received The Salt Lake Tribune’s top leadership award for midsized companies.
The Top Workplaces 2019 honor is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
“Utah is home to some of the most outstanding companies and workplaces in the country, and Lendio is honored to be ranked among them,” said Blake. “We know that catered lunches and company swag are nice to have, pay and benefits are very important, but its connection and alignment that employees crave. As such, Lendio works hard to foster employee engagement and trust.”
“Great business leaders empower every member of their team to innovate and grow,” said Chris McKee, Partner Account Manager at Lendio. “One of the main reasons I joined Lendio is its leadership. They focus on creating an environment where employees feel truly appreciated and they know their work is meaningful.”
Lendio was founded in 2011 by Brock Blake and Trent Miskin. The company has since become the largest small business loan marketplace in the U.S., with more than 75 of the nation’s top lenders on its platform. To date, the company has facilitated more than $1.7B in financing through more than 90,000 loans to small business owners across the U.S.
“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”
