Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
On August 26th the Los Angeles Business Journal placed Swagbucks.com and its parent company, Prodege LLC, as one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Los Angeles. A thorough assessment done by the Best Companies Group landed Swagbucks, a popular online rewards program, a #21 spot on the annual list. At the very same time this announcement was made, the company was also celebrating its having surpassed the $45 million dollar mark in rewards distributed to its members.
“It's truly humbling to be ranked among the other great companies on this Los Angeles Business Journal best company list,” said Chief Executive Officer, Josef Gorowitz. “This accolade is a testament to the good people that make up our members and the amazingly vibrant and exciting culture our team has developed.”
Through its loyalty rewards program, Swagbucks.com members earn virtual currency called “Swag Bucks” for doing things they do everyday online, including searching the Web, shopping at their favorite retailers, playing games, watching videos, participating in surveys and more. Users can then redeem their Swag Bucks for valuable real-life rewards and gift cards to their favorite retailers. According to a Pew Internet report, a total of 85% of Americans are using the Internet for these exact activities. In separate usage polls, Pew found active Internet users surveyed answered ‘Yes’ when asked if they participated in certain activities online, finding 91% to be searching the web, 71% to be watching videos, and 65% to be using social networking sites.
Launched a short five-years ago, Swagbucks.com’s consistent, rapid growth also earned the company a top rank on the Los Angeles Business Journal’s fastest growing company list in 2011 and 2012, as well as strong placement on Inc Magazine’s annual growing company list in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
