If you hear sustained, delighted screaming sounding from the rooftops of Chicago’s Lincoln Park area, that’s because Jellyvision, maker of interactive financial decisions software ALEX, has earned a spot on the 2019 Inc. Best Workplaces list.

It’s the fact that we have amazing people who have many choices about where to work, and lucky for us, they choose Jellyvision. We support each other and provide help whenever anyone needs it. And we also do work that matters—we literally make a difference in people’s financial wellness and health decisions that have a lasting impact on their lives.”

In partnership with Quantum Workplace, the annual survey for Best Workplaces by Inc. takes a pulse on topics including trust in senior leadership, career development, change management, and benefits. The results from the questionnaires are gathered and analyzed to identify the highest scoring organizations. More than 2,000 companies were in the running for the Inc. Best Workplaces list this year, and only 346 were named finalists, and Jellyvision is proud to be counted amongst them—screaming proud.
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great company culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor and chief, James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example the whole world can learn from.”
