GitLab and Allset are among the top 500 startup employers in the US

The American magazine Forbes has compiled a list of 500 best startup employers. It is the second Forbes ranking of this kind, but the evaluation criteria have slightly changed due to the pandemic. This time, instead of taking into account free lunches and long vacations, companies were evaluated by how they supported their employees during the quarantine, organized remote work, and how they built communication and training.

It is important to note that this ranking is a selection of startups. That is why there is no Google or Nike there. The list was compiled by evaluating 2,500 American businesses with at least 50 employees, and Forbes editors paid attention to employer reputation, employee satisfaction with the workplace, and employee growth.
