Beacon Named as New York’s Best & Brightest Company to Work For

NEW YORK, December 15, 2022 – Beacon Platform is proud to announce that for the second consecutive year it has been named as one of 2022’s New York’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. This program, run by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), works with an independent research firm to evaluate hundreds of nominees to recognize the efforts and accomplishments of their human resources professionals.

At Beacon, we believe Industry-leading innovation is powered by a diverse workforce and a collaborative and inclusive company culture, generating a broader set of ideas and greater critical inquiry. From recruitment through retention, Beacon emphasizes empowerment, communication, and respect, encouraging a customer-centric and curious mindset in its global workforce. The result is an award-winning fintech innovation platform, built by people with deep expertise and experience in financial services, that enables customers to focus on their intellectual property and competitive edge. 

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 once again honored to accept this award on behalf of our employees,” said Jennifer Skrapits, Beacon’s Chief Administrative Officer. ”At Beacon, we strive to create a collaborative and supportive environment where each employee can thrive, feel challenged, and bring their ideas forward to make a difference.” 

“Our culture puts employees first and embraces inclusion, respect, and curiosity,” said Kirat Singh, Beacon’s Co-Founder and CEO. “This award recognizes the focus we put on our people, our rewarding environment, and our desire to do our best to meet client needs.”
