Jan 06, 2022

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This week, Vital Farms (Nasdaq: VITL), a Certified B Corporation that offers a range of ethically produced foods nationwide, was recognized by Built In Austin as one of the “100 Best Midsize Companies to Work” in its 2022 Best Places to Work Awards.

Built In’s annual awards program recognizes top employers across the country, featuring companies who go above and beyond for their employees through compensation, companywide programming, and benefits including remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI, and other people-first cultural offerings.

“There is so much to love about the people-first culture we foster at Vital Farms,” says Russell Diez-Canseco, President and CEO, Vital Farms. “We operate through the lens of Conscious Capitalism, maintaining a belief that prioritizing the long-term viability of all stakeholders, who include our crew members, will produce stronger outcomes for everyone over time. It’s our stakeholder-driven business model and values of humility, growth, ownership, and empathy that develop passionate crew members who are committed to our mission of bringing ethical food to the table. We thank Built In for recognizing Vital Farms as a Best Midsize Company in Austin and look forward to creating even more high-quality jobs in Austin and beyond.”

In the past year, Vital Farms welcomed 175 new crew members across the country including two senior leadership crew members. Vital Farms also transitioned to a remote workforce in 2021, after learning that the majority of its corporate crew members appreciated the flexibility of working from home. This transition has enabled Vital Farms to attract top talent across the country and had a positive impact on retention and engagement.

Additionally, all Vital Farms crew members receive competitive benefits and compensation including health insurance, paid parental leave, retirement contributions, equity grants, leadership training, and quarterly bonus eligibility through the Great Game of Business (GGOB).

“It is my honor to extend congratulations to Vital Farms and all of the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “This year saw a record number of entrants — and the past two years fundamentally changed what professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s professionals seek.”
