First Advantage Receives 2023 Best Places to Work Awards from Comparably

Recognized for Best Global Culture, Best Company Outlook, Best CEOs for Diversity, and Best Career Growth 

First Advantage has been honored with a series of culture awards in the large companies’ bracket by Comparably for Q1 and Q2. Each quarter, Comparably, a platform that provides culture and compensation data for public and private companies, recognizes companies with Best Places to Work Awards, as rated by their own employees, across a variety of categories. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue to say it, ‘People are at the heart of everything we do.’ From our team members to our customers, partners, and investors — the commitment to build trusted relationships is key to our company culture,” Scott Staples, CEO ​​​​​​​at First Advantage said. “Consistently being honored with these awards not only highlights our unique culture at First Advantage, but it’s also a testament to how our employees view our company which is the biggest compliment. These awards are because of them — thank you, team.” 

Comparably Awards received by First Advantage so far in 2023 include:


  • Best CEOs for Diversity: Based solely on how employees of color (non-Caucasian) rate and approve of their company CEOs.
  • Best Career Growth: Based on how employees feel about their professional development opportunities (meaningful career advancement, mentorship, challenging work, how often they receive valuable feedback from their direct managers on how to improve).
  • Best Global Culture: Measures how North American and international workers from large companies (more than 500 employees) with a global footprint rate their overall workplace experiences in 16 different metrics (compensation, leadership, co-workers, work-life balance, career growth, perks & benefits, etc.).
  • Best Company Outlook: Measures how confident employees are about the future success of their company, how likely they are to recommend working there to a friend (eNPS – employee Net Promoter Score), and if they’re typically excited to go to work each day.

In 2022, First Advantage received nine Comparably Awards including Best Company for HR Teams and Best Company for Employee Happiness.
