Fast Company today announced its fourth annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring organizations and businesses that demonstrate a steadfast commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. JA Worldwide enters the top-100 list for the first time, earning the #1 spot for nonprofits.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2022 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, engineering, diversity, sustainability, B2B, and consumer products and services. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers worked together to score nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 organizations. The 2022 awards feature workplaces from around the world.
According to Asheesh Advani, CEO of JA Worldwide, “the JA network of teams has built a workplace culture that embraces innovation, digital transformation, and generous sharing of resources and talent. Throughout the world, we’ve collaborated on a number of projects, including JA Labs, JA Worldwide Fellows, Youth Voices, and so much more.”
“This year’s list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators recognizes organizations that have demonstrated a deep commitment to cultivating creativity across the board,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “In the face of powerful headwinds, these leaders and teams continue to spur innovation.”
