ForwardLine Financial, a leading direct lender of small business loans, is excited to announce it has received recognition by Comparably as one of the Best Companies for Work-Life Balance. Comparably, a platform that aims to make work better by providing transparency around compensation and culture for employees and companies, uses anonymous employee sentiment ratings from thousands of companies in its scoring process.
For the last 15 years, ForwardLine has focused on helping America’s small businesses access to working capital. The company recently secured $120 million in capital to drive future growth and to continue investing
in creating an environment where employees can thrive both at work and outside of work. As a values-driven organization, ForwardLine is proud to provide a workplace where employees can focus on being customer-centric and accountable, while also maintaining work-life balance.
“We believe that creating a culture where work-life balance is celebrated is critical to our success,” said Steve Carlson, ForwardLine’s CEO. “We encourage our team members to push their potential and bring their passion to work while finding personal fulfillment and balance. This is a testament to our culture and values. We are truly a performance-driven environment that respects individuality.”
“The top-rated companies on our Best Work-Life Balance list understand that providing flexibility has a positive impact on productivity,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. “The employees at ForwardLine
Financial commend its leadership and HR department for providing a happy and relaxed environment. The company provides employees a good blend of collaboration and autonomy that ultimately enhances their work performance.”
The company’s Comparably employee sentiment score is 87 percent overall. In response to the question, “What is most positive about the culture and environment at your company?” a ForwardLine employee commented, “The culture is great, work/life balance and the compensation with the ability to grow quickly based on performance.”
