Leesburg, VA – March 11th, 2021 The Building People has been awarded No. 427 on the Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers 2021. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. To be considered for this ranking, employers needed to have a headquarters in the United States and founded between 2011 and 2018. The final list recognizes the top 500 companies based on over 7 million data points. The awards list was announced on March 9th, 2021, and can be viewed on the Forbes website.

America’s Best Startup Employers were selected based on an innovative methodology evaluating employer excellence in three ways:

  • Employee Satisfaction: extensive research was conducted on ‘Average Length of Employment’ and ‘Online Employer Reviews’.
  • Employer Reputation: company-specific information was algorithmically extracted from social media channels such as news sites, micro-blogs, blogs, and social networks.
  • Company Growth: comprehensive evaluations of ‘Website Traffic’, ‘Headcount Growth Rates’, and ‘Industry-Referenced Job Openings’.

Lawrence Melton, CEO & President of The Building People said: “I am thrilled for The Building People to be recognized on such a prestigious list. These awards are not taken lightly, and it is foundational to building an incredible workforce and workplace of the future. We could not have made this happen without our amazing team. Unlike most industry-leading awards that require an application process, the Forbes list is curated by their analysis based entirely on their reputation and performance in the marketplace without any external influence on their decision.”
