Aware Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2023

by Jeff Schumann

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 9, 2023 -- Aware, the leading AI Data Platform for employee listening, today announced it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. Featured in the May/June 2023 issue, which hits newsstands on May 16, 2023, and prominently featured on, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility. 

Aware’s groundbreaking technology platform, which is used by the world’s most valuable and most recognized brands, captures the real-time pulse of frontline employees. By continuously listening to the entire workforce, Aware provides the C-Suite with the business context to deliver a better employee experience and new revenue opportunities.  As a business, Aware lives by its values by putting employees first and empowering them to create a company culture that reflects their distinct personalities. This approach has also led to several awards for Aware, including Central Ohio’s Coolest Offices, Top Mission-Driven Tech Companies and Startups, Top SaaS Startups and Tech Companies in the Midwest, and being named the winner of the inaugural Columbus Inno Madness competition.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 591 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

"Aware is humbled to be recognized by Inc. Magazine for its annual list of best workplaces,” said Jeff Schumann, CEO of Aware. “At Aware, it’s incredibly important that we live out our core values. If employees feel heard and valued, and they get the support they need, they are more engaged and productive, which drives a stronger culture and better business results. Not only do we experience this first-hand with Aware employees, but we see it with customers who leverage our technology."

“Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Proving to the world that you’re a magnet for talent and have a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement.”
