The fintech earned top accolades for offering its team flexibility, wellness, growth, and support
PurposeJobs, the Midwest’s largest startup and tech community, names Pocketnest a company with the best culture.
"We're humbled and pleased to earn this PurposeJobs Best Culture Award—because, simply put, people matter. With a people-first approach to our business, we recognize and deliver on our colleagues’, clients’ and partners’ needs—whether business needs or human needs," said Jessica Willis, founder and CEO, Pocketnest. "Especially as a wellness brand, we believe mental fitness is just as important as physical—or financial!—fitness and operate our business accordingly. We also hire intentionally, scale with purpose, and live to serve."
Companies across the Midwest region applied for consideration and were accepted based on the top cultural values that employees are looking for today: flexibility, wellness, growth, and support.
“Company culture goes well beyond the office perks of the past,” said Ryan Landau, founder and CEO of Purpose Jobs. “Top candidates across the globe are looking for supportive workplace cultures that allow people to bring their best — and true — selves to work. Employees are demanding flexibility, inclusivity, wellness and balance, and an environment where people are always encouraged to grow.”
According to research from LinkedIn, 63% of workers choose work-life balance as a #1 priority over pay and benefits, and 40% consider workplace culture to be a top priority when choosing a new job.
“What’s best about these companies on this list is that these values are not just words written on a wall. These companies all have values-driven cultures that are lived out each day,” said Landau.
