Cedar Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2021
This recognition comes off the heels of Cedar’s recent acquisition of OODA Health and Series D funding announcement, signaling further growth and career opportunities
NEW YORK — Cedar, an innovative healthcare financial technology platform, has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.
“At Cedar, we have always prioritized company culture and employee engagement, as we believe well-supported employees are able to fulfill both their own career goals and advance our company goals,” said Florian Otto, CEO and co-founder of Cedar. “This recognition would not be possible without our dedicated team, and I’m so honored by their commitment to the work we do.”
Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking. In the survey, Cedar team members mentioned they appreciate the company’s collaborative, transparent and mission-driven culture.
“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
On Thursday, Cedar announced that it has entered a definitive agreement to acquire OODA Health, a healthcare technology company focused on improving the healthcare administrative experience with payers and providers. By bringing together providers and payers onto one healthcare financial technology platform, Cedar will be the only solution to fully address the challenges consumers face when paying for healthcare, and truly transform the financial experience in healthcare in a holistic way. Cedar expects to continue growing its team significantly over the next year to meet skyrocketing demand for consumer-friendly digital health tools, and will be hiring for roles across the organization.
“With the integration of the Cedar and OODA Health teams, we are joining two highly complementary cultures," continued Otto. "By bringing together our parts — our teams, our product roadmaps, our clients, our passions — the whole of our combined organizations is truly greater than the sum and will continue being a place where people love to work."
In addition to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2021, Cedar was recently named to the Forbes 2021 List of America’s Best Startup Employers, Built In’s 2021 Best Places to Work in New York City and Wealthfront’s 2021 Career-Launching Companies.
