Ascent is excited to start off the new year recognized as one of Chicago’s Best Places to Work and Best Small Companies to Work For, for the third year in a row by Built In!

Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits, and companywide programming. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for most frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI, and other people-first cultural offerings.  

“The pandemic pushed us to transform from remote-friendly to fully remote-first. Truly embracing this change allowed us to support each other through a difficult time, welcome new teammates from around the country, and build momentum even in the face of uncertainty and adversity,” said Carrie Pinkham, VP of People at Ascent.

The resiliency of the in-house team reflects our collective dedication to achieving Ascent’s mission: to reduce the costs and complexities of compliance and to help create a world that’s not restricted but empowered by the rule of law.

Pinkham continued, “We feel fortunate to have a vibrant group of kind, intelligent, dedicated people collaborating to bring a game-changing product to market together. Our goal is to continue building a workplace where our employees feel recognized, motivated, and empowered to do their best work.”
