The second annual Inc. Magazine’s list of the best places to work has been released, and Colorado is home to nine overall, and four make the top 50. The list is compiled based on the replies of employees asked to list why their employer is a great place to work, with nearly 170,000 respondents.
The nine businesses that made the list are advertising and marketing companies AdCellerant, ADPERIO, Diablo Media, and GroundFloor Media; software companies Choozle and Mobile Solutions; financial services company Agency of Credit Control; retail company Ibotta; and manufacturing company Purely Elizabeth.
The featured companies run the gamut, with revenue ranging from under $2 million to the hundreds of millions, or having as few employees as ten to in the hundreds.
Agency of Credit Control, Diablo Media, GroundFloor Media, and Mobile Solutions ranked in the top 50 of all the companies featured. The Denver Business Journal notes that all companies in the top 50 offer medical and dental insurance, 48 have 401(k) plans with some matching contribution, and 24 percent have a stock ownership plan.
Inc. notes in its roundup of the survey that the open-ended comments from employees that modern perks like a beer fridge are fun, but don’t impact employee performance as much as a strong company culture.
