Sedera Honored As A ‘Best Place To Work For Millennials’ By Fortune Magazine; And ‘Best Place To Work In Austin’ By Austin Business Journal
Austin, TX, July 16, 2021 — Sedera, the industry-leading medical cost sharing organization, today announced that it made Fortune Magazine’s “Best Places to Work for Millennials” list and also ranked 6th on the Austin Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” list. Sedera offers an innovative, non-insurance approach for managing large healthcare costs — helping tens of thousands of people save money on health care costs since its founding in 2014.
The annual Austin Business Journal Best Places to Work list evaluates corporate culture and employee satisfaction data to compile a prestigious list of the best workplaces in the city. In previous years, the list has honored the likes of GoDaddy and Charles Schwab & Co. for their commitment to fostering a welcoming and inclusive corporate culture.
Amid massive shifts in how we live and work due to the pandemic, Austin Business Journal rankings acknowledge this year how companies have cultivated community and created collaborative environments even when working from home.
Fortune Magazine also evaluates workplace culture each year to determine its list of “Best Places to Work for Millennials” nationally. After analyzing feedback from millions of employees across thousands of companies, Fortune ranked Sedera among the “Best Places to Work for Millenials.” A generation known for its commitment to social justice and tendency to job hop, millennial workers appreciate Sedera’s mission-driven business and supportive workplace culture.
With a national labor shortage and unprecedented quit-rates across the United States, Fortune’s “Best Places to Work” list is more significant than ever as job-seekers search for new positions and industries. In Austin, a growing tech hub that has previously ranked as a top city for talent, businesses are taking a particularly hard hit due to the labor crisis. Given the current staffing shortages in the city, the Austin Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” list reveals which companies are best positioned to retain and attract talent.
Sedera is fueled by a dedicated team that works tirelessly to be the best in the industry. In the most recent anonymous employee survey taken in 2020, 100% of the 64 participants said “I am Proud to work for Sedera.” Additionally, last year, Sedera was recognized in the top 4% of America’s fastest-growing private companies, according to Inc. 5000. Sedera also was named a finalist in the Austin A-List awards for Tech & Innovation, a finalist in the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics, and ranked 2nd place in the over $10 million category for the Fastest Growing Private company in Austin. Sedera also ranked 4th, in the medium-sized category, on the 2020 Austin Business Journal Best Places to Work list.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the best places to work in Austin and around the country,” said Jamie Lagarde, CEO of Sedera. “Community is the engine of Sedera at every level of our operations. We pride ourselves on our medical cost sharing model, which connects patients with a like-minded and supportive community, a mindset that shapes our workplace culture.
