LinkedIn’s Top Startups 2020 list is a reflection of how businesses are evolving through the pandemic, what industries are emerging and growing, and where people want to work in the face of an uncertain economy. LinkedIn’s selection criteria also took into account each startup’s ability to attract talent from other top employers previously recognized. Great Place to Work® conducted a rigorous analysis of the entire Modern Health workforce, analyzing critical sentiments like trust, acceptance and engagement. The certification confirms that 100 percent of Modern Health’s employees care about each other, feel they have meaningful responsibilities, and believes management trusts them to do a good job without watching over their shoulders.

“We believe that people are the most valuable asset to businesses and it’s our mission to create healthier workforces across the world. We are committed to aligning our culture with our mission and proud to be recognized by both LinkedIn and Great Place to Work® as one of the best startups to work for,” comments Alyson Watson (formerly Friedensohn), CEO and founder of Modern Health. “These awards are testament to our goal of not only making a positive change in the world, but creating a workplace where every employee feels valued, respected and supported. Our entire team has worked hard to build this type of culture, and I’m incredibly proud and humbled to get to work alongside each and every one of them. By creating a healthy, empowering culture, we know that our employees will deliver better results for our customers.”
