The Best Small Workplaces

By Michael Klazema on 7/27/2019
What defines a “great” small workplace? Is it an incredible benefits package? A focus on the health and wellbeing of its employees? A clear mission that employees respect? A welcoming atmosphere and company culture? A diverse staff? A workplace where everyone feels valued?

The answer is “all of the above.” Each of these factors can contribute to turning a small business into a place where people truly want to work. In the latest backgroundchecks.com white paper, we look at a few of the best small workplaces in the US. Drawing from lists and awards bestowed by reviewers from Fortune to the American Psychological Association, we identify the qualities that can turn an under-the-radar small business into one of the country’s (or even the world’s) most desirable places to work.
