Allbirds Tops America’s Best Startup Employers Of 2020 | The Countdown | Forbes

Published

on

If you’d rather take a risk and join a budding business than be bound to the rungs of the corporate ladder, startup life may be right for you. But when your potential employer hasn’t existed for more than a few years and may not even have a product, let alone profits, how can you tell if it’s a good place to work? This week we’re breaking down America’s best startup employers.

Eco-friendly shoe brand Allbirds leads the 2020 list in the #1 slot. Since launching in 2016, the San Francisco-based direct-to-consumer footwear brand has sought to create comfortable, carbon-neutral shoes. A certified B Corp, Allbirds’ sustainable practices have proved an effective recruitment tool. “The talent we attract is aligned with our mission to make an impact on the world,” says Laila Tarraf, head of employee experience at Allbirds. “For people who want to spend their working lives feeling like they’re doing something that helps the greater good, we make that possible here.”

To determine the list, Statista identified 2,500 American businesses that had been founded between 2010 and 2017 and employ at least 50 people. All companies considered had been started from scratch and not spun out of existing enterprises. Statista evaluated each organization based on three criteria, the first being employer reputation. The firm reviewed articles, blogs and social media posts pertaining to each employer, searching for specific phrases, such as “corporate culture” and “employee engagement.” Statista then assessed employee satisfaction, evaluating online reviews, as well as growth, examining the organizations’ website traffic and headcounts over a two-year period. The final list ranks the 500 employers that boast the best employer reputations, employee satisfaction and growth.

Waffle House’s Struggles Highlight How Coronavirus Is Killing Restaurants | Forbes

Published

on

By

The past two weeks have been sobering for Waffle House Chairman Joe Rogers, Jr. The chain of no-frills, 24-hour breakfast spots has remained defiantly open in the face of so many disasters that the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses a Waffle House Index to measure their severity. Hurricane Hugo couldn’t shut the doors for long in Charleston in 1989. The same in Georgia when Irma crashed through two years ago. The index was solid green in Joplin, Mo. after a tornado killed 158 people there in 2011. Then came the coronavirus pandemic.

The FEMA index uses the time it takes for Waffle House locations to re-open after calamity strikes. Normally it doesn’t take long, if they even shut down. His system of 2,000 diners in 25 states is “almost comically” well positioned to mobilize in a crisis, Rogers said: It’s family owned, tightly controlled and able to shift resources and supplies from unaffected restaurants to those in need with alacrity.

This week he’s had to close 20% of locations, about 420 in all. Waffle House typically has annual revenue of more than $1.3 billion but with the country on lockdown — and only one drive-thru location and a marginal take-out business — sales are about 30% of what they should be, Rogers said. Thousands of his 40,000 workers are now furloughed.
