InfoTrust No. 2 on Ad Age Best Places to Work 2021 List

“Are we giving because we’re growing, or are we growing because we’re giving?”

During a tumultuous year in which companies needed to adapt to unprecedented circumstances, this message was CEO Alex Yastrebenetsky’s guiding principle. It was also a big reason why InfoTrust was selected as the No. 2 Best Place to Work in 2021, according to Ad Age.

Each year, the Ad Age Best Places to Work rankings honor 50 U.S.-based companies (broken into two size categories). On the publication’s 2021 list, InfoTrust sits at No. 2 among companies with 200 or fewer employees.

Last summer, Yastrebenetsky encouraged businesses to adopt InfoTrust’s “No Layoffs” pledge. The goal was to support employees as much as possible to provide some certainty amid a pandemic. InfoTrust extended this pledge to last through October 1, 2020.

The mission caught on across the globe. Local businesses agreed to join the pledge, as well as companies as far away as Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, and South Africa.

InfoTrust also decided to donate 25% of profits (through its foundation) in 2020. Among those charities was the Bethany House homeless shelter in Cincinnati, Ohio (near InfoTrust headquarters). Other charities included clinics in India and shelters in Sri Lanka.

Beyond the company’s benefits—which include an open PTO policy, fully-paid medical insurance for the entire family, daily catered lunches, and tuition reimbursement—InfoTrust puts a strong emphasis on giving back to the communities in which employees live and work. In the early stages of the pandemic, employees volunteered to provide résumé counseling and analytics “upskilling” for laid-off marketing professionals to assist them in landing their next job.

In addition, InfoTrust created the “Superheroes Wear Masks” campaign in March 2020. The crowdsourcing effort aimed to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline workers fighting against the pandemic. The initiative raised over $40,000.

These efforts did not curb InfoTrust’s growth, either. Full-year revenue grew 50%, according to Yastrebenetsky.

The selection signals an upward trend, as InfoTrust earned the No. 23 spot  on Ad Age’s list in 2019 and the No. 5 spot in 2020. InfoTrust has been named to the list four of the last five years. (There was no list released in 2018).

The winning workplaces in the 2021 Ad Age ranking “reflect the highest overall numerical scores based on an analysis of questionnaires submitted by employers and survey responses of their employees,” per the publication. To see the full ranking, click here.
