Beacon Platform is proud to announce that they have been named as one of the 2021 The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®, in both New York and the Nation. This program, run by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), works with an independent research firm to evaluate hundreds of nominees. This is Beacon’s first time appearing on the list, and they are excited to be recognized for the efforts and accomplishments of their human resources professionals and the rapidly growing Beacon team that they support.

Beacon is an award-winning leader in enterprise-scale applications and technology stacks for the financial services industry. The company’s next-generation quant technology, elastic cloud infrastructure, and front office applications give firms the flexibility, security, and scale they need to gain a competitive edge. Beacon closed out 2021 surpassing the team’s stretch goals and is actively recruiting with multiple openings across all departments and regions. 

The Best and Brightest program gathers data through anonymous employee surveys, with questions spanning multiple categories to identify those with exceptional human resources practices. Candidates are evaluated on issues such as communication, diversity and inclusion, employee development, recruitment and retention, and work-life balance. Over the 20 years that NABR has been running this program they have identified an array of benchmarks and best practices for companies to learn from. 

“I am thrilled to receive this award on behalf of our amazing employees,”said Jennifer Skrapits, Beacon’s Chief Administrative Officer. “Our core values put people first, and recruiting, developing, and retaining the best people is fundamental to our continued success.”

Beacon’s culture encourages curiosity, transparency, and problem solving,” said Kirat Singh, Beacon’s Co-Founder and CEO. “This award is a wonderful acknowledgment of our people and their focus on positive interactions, collaboration, and a desire to get to the best possible results.”
