Yello Earns 81st on Built In’s Chicago Market

CHICAGO — January 25, 2022

Built In announced that Yello was honored in its 2022 Best Places to Work Awards earlier this month. Yello, which recently merged with the leading DEI sourcing platform WayUp, earned a place on 100 Best Places To Work In Chicago 2022. The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in the eight largest tech markets across the U.S. 

“We’re beyond excited to be recognized as a Best Place to Work in Chicago,” says Yello CEO Corey Ferengul. “Our team has always gone above and beyond to maintain a positive, inclusive culture. It’s been a challenge to stay tight-knit and motivated over the past few years of chaos – I’m really proud of what our team has accomplished and their continued ability to shine through all situations.”

Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and companywide programming. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

“It is my honor to extend congratulations to the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “This year saw a record number of entrants — and the past two years fundamentally changed what tech professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
