Onbe Garners Four Best Workplace Awards from Built In

For Two Consecutive Years, Onbe is Recognized by Built In and for the First Time, for National Awards

CHICAGO and PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Onbe, a market-leading corporate disbursements platform, announced it has earned four awards in Built In's 2023 Best Places To Work Awards—specifically, the Remote Best Midsize Place to Work, Remote Best Place to Work, U.S. Best Midsize Place to Work and U.S. Best Place to Work awards. This is the second year in a row that Built In has recognized Onbe, and the first year that Onbe has won awards nationally. The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in the eight largest technology markets across the U.S.

"We strive to create a culture at Onbe that attracts the top minds in fintech and nurtures that talent, wherever they may be," said Jennifer Garrison, chief people officer at Onbe. "It's an honor to be recognized for that work by Built In and a reminder that our work to build an inclusive, strong and top-performing culture is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our employees."

Onbe's leadership implemented a work from anywhere culture during the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining physical offices near Philadelphia and Chicago, giving employees the autonomy to determine how and where they do their best work. To deliver strong business results, the shift to remote work intensified the need to focus on the entire person, from their physical wellbeing to their mental health, while investing in the technologies that bring out the best in employees. Onbe worked to foster inclusivity while empowering employees to pursue their passions, leading to the creation of multiple employee resource groups, monthly communications and forums centered on learning, and dialogue about diversity and global issues. Onbe also created a Learning & DEI team and functions to lead career mapping and pathing to underscore and support its intentionality around hiring and leading a diverse group of people.

"While teams across Onbe are driving innovation to modernize the payments experience for our clients every day, we are committed to fostering a community that attracts top talent and provides a strong community for that talent to thrive," said Bala Janakiraman, CEO of Onbe. "Being recognized for this work reinforces the importance of having a people-first culture in a technology-driven industry."

Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first culture offerings.

"It's my honor to congratulate this year's Best Places to Work winners," said Sheridan Orr, chief marketing officer, Built In. "These exemplary companies understand their people are their most valuable asset, and they've stepped up to meet the modern professional's new expectations, including the desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centered future of work, and we can't wait to see that future unfold."
