Beloit, Wisconsin (PRWEB) October 18, 2011

The Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2011 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® list was announced today and FatWallet was ranked #13 on the list. This annual list recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. In its eighth year, the competition is divided into two categories, Small (50-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees).

FatWallet has long been recognized locally and nationally for their unique workplace culture, as well as their commitment to helping consumers everywhere prosper. "We want to thank Great Place To Work® for selecting FatWallet. Our company culture is like our personality. It's the qualities and core values that reflect our relationships and how we conduct ourselves as a business, said Ryan Washatka, COO of FatWallet. “We are rewarded by helping people save money and honored to be recognized for how we do it."

Moving up from #20 in 2010, FatWallet was selected as #13 among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the 2011 list. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

Creators of the list, Great Place to Work has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with. “The companies featured on this year’s list are truly extraordinary in their practices and achievements,” said Susan Lucas-Conwell, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Their leaders recognize the value of creating great workplaces and the competitive edge it provides them.”

FatWallet was also named as one of the 50 Most Engaged Workplaces (I Love Rewards) earlier this year. As a company, FatWallet is shaped by strong leadership and core values that illustrate the pillars of engagement in the workplace. "Our employees recognize they make a difference in their jobs, and are excellent ambassadors of our brand”, said April Kunzelman, H.R. Director. “This award is a reflection of the positive culture we've all built, together."

Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
