First Advantage Recognized as a 2022 Best Company for Happiness by Comparably

First Advantage Corporation (NASDAQ: FA), has been recognized as a Best Company for Happiness by Comparably. The award is based on responses from an employee survey that addressed a combination of factors contributing to happiness at work such as a positive environment, fair pay, great benefits, excitement about work and co-workers, clear company goals, and pride in the company.

“There are many reasons for our team members to be happy at First Advantage. I believe a company culture where team members feel valued is one of them,” Michael Pilnick, Chief Human Resources Officer at First Advantage said. “Another contributing factor is an environment where they feel empowered to advocate for their work/life balance and have the flexibility to work remotely. To counter the trend of ‘quiet quitting’ and avoid burnout, team members need to take the time they need to rejuvenate and to refocus.”   

This recognition brings the total of Comparably Awards received by First Advantage to six so far in 2022 in the large companies category.
