This is Forward’s first time being named to these prestigious lists, ranking #52 and #7 respectively. Earning a spot on these lists shows that Forward Financing is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

To determine the Best Medium Workplaces list, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 200,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with 100 to 999 U.S. employees.
