LOS ANGELES, January 11, 2020 -- FloQast, a provider of accounting workflow automation software created by accountants for accountants, today announced it has been named a Los Angeles Best Place to Work by Built In, an annual award that includes companies of all sizes, from startups to the enterprise, nationally and in the eight largest tech markets. Built In also named FloQast one of LA’s Best Midsize Companies to Work For and an LA Company with the Best Benefits.

Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and cultural programs. To reflect the attributes candidates are searching for on Built In today, this year’s program weighted criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity and inclusion.  

“We’re always proud to be included on various ‘best workplace’ lists, but we’re particularly excited to be honored by Built In because it recognizes traits we value such as diversity and company culture,” said Mike Whitmire, CPA*, CEO and co-founder of FloQast. “These three honors are a great way to kick off 2021, and we’re hoping it serves as a launching pad for the biggest year FloQast has ever seen”

“These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees," says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer at Built In. “The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”
