San Mateo, Calif., December 18, 2023 Achieve, the leader in digital personal finance, has been named the top company on the 2023 Best Places to Work list by the Phoenix Business Journal. This marks the third consecutive year Achieve has ranked as the No. 1 employer in the extra-large company category. The company has appeared on the list a total of 13 times, including additional first-place rankings in 2016 and 2017.

Additionally, Achieve has been named to the Az Business magazine’s AZ Big 100 List for the second consecutive year, which recognizes the 100 people and companies who will shape Arizona’s business community in 2024.

“We are immensely honored to be recognized once again as a Best Place to Work by the Phoenix Business Journal. This achievement reflects our unwavering commitment to fostering a workplace culture that inspires innovation, collaboration, and care for our teammates,” said Achieve Co-Founder and Co-CEO Brad Stroh. “Additionally, being named to Az Business magazine’s AZ Big 100 List reinforces our dedication to shaping Arizona’s business landscape. This recognition is a testament to the collective efforts of our amazing team at Achieve, who continually work in support of our mission to help everyday people move forward on the path to a better financial future.”

The Phoenix Business Journal’s rankings are based on the results of a confidential survey of Achieve’s Phoenix area teammates about the company’s culture, including communication style, managerial effectiveness, and collaboration. In its profile of Achieve, the Phoenix Business Journal highlighted the company’s commitment to its employees by actively investing in their growth and well-being.

The AZ Big 100 list was determined by Az Business magazine’s editorial staff with the input and assistance of business leaders throughout the state. The list is featured as part of a special section that analyzes the economic outlook for 2024 to help Arizona executives make more informed business decisions.

“Achieve's people are what ultimately sets us apart,” said Achieve Executive Vice President of Human Resources Linda Luman. “It's the care, passion, dedication and talent of our team that truly define Achieve, and these recognitions are a celebration of their outstanding contributions and the incredible spirit they bring to the organization.”

Achieve is often recognized as an employer of choice in Arizona and other localities in which it operates. In September, the company was named one of Arizona's Most Admired Companies of 2023 by Az Business magazine and BestCompaniesAZ for the third consecutive year. In February, the company was recognized in five categories of the Built In Best Places to Work Awards.
