Fintech Firm Comes in at No. 22 for Midsize Businesses in Utah
SALT LAKE CITY — November 22, 2016 — Finicity, a growing fintech company based in Salt Lake valley, has been named a Top 25 Midsize Business in the Salt Lake Tribune’s Top Workplaces 2016 list, which covers the entire state of Utah. Coming in at no. 22, this is Finicity’s first appearance on the annual list.
“Making this list is an honor to our dedicated, hard-working employees here in Utah and globally,” said Nick Thomas, president and co-founder. “We’re up to 135 employees locally now and growing rapidly. I’m excited at the direction in which we’re heading.”
The Salt Lake Tribune has been compiling its Top Workplaces list for the past three years, increasing from a total of 50 companies listed in 2014 to 65 this year. Based on the highest ratings from employee surveys, in 2016 there were 15 “large” companies listed, followed by 25 each for the “midsize” and “small” categories.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day — the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
