[Chicago, Ill, March 15] – Braven has been awarded on the Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

America’s Best Startup Employers were selected based on an innovative methodology evaluating employer excellence in three ways:

    • Employee Satisfaction: extensive research was conducted on ‘Average Length of Employment’ and ‘Online Employer Reviews’.
    • Employer Reputation: company-specific information was algorithmically extracted from social media channels such as news sites, micro-blogs, blogs, and social networks.
    • Company Growth: comprehensive evaluations of ‘Website Traffic’, ‘Headcount Growth Rates’, and ‘Industry-Referenced Job Openings’.

To be considered for the ranking, employers need to have a headquarters in the US and be founded between 2012 and 2019. The final list recognizes the top 500 companies based on over 8 million data points.

Based on the results of the study, Braven is ecstatic to be recognized on the Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers 2022.

“I’m so incredibly proud of how far we’ve come and the team we’ve built since 2013, one that actually looks like the makeup of our country,” says Aimée Eubanks Davis, founder, and CEO of Braven. “I’m excited to build on this success and the impact we’ll continue to make in the years ahead, in partnership with our incredible university and employer partners.”
