Neighborly has recently been named to Inc.’s inaugural Best in Business list in the Enduring Impact category. The Best in Business Awards, created by Inc., honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference, according to the company’s site.
The list recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had an impact on their communities, industries, the environment or society.
“Our franchise owners and their employees are consistently raising the bar in terms of their dedication to serve their communities, and given we are in the midst of a global pandemic, I couldn’t be prouder to see our organization rewarded with this silver medal for the Enduring Impact Award from Inc.,” said Mike Bidwell, Neighborly CEO and president. “We’ve gone above and beyond this year to prioritize the safety of our teams and customers while still fulfilling homeowners’ essential services needs through our family of brands, and receiving this award confirms that the work has been and will continue to be worth it.”
Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 30 different industries–health, software, retail, business services, and more–and in age- and revenue-based categories.
“It’s been an incredibly challenging year for companies,” said Scott Omelainuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Across industries, businesses have had to make brutally tough decisions and face unprecedented uncertainty. That’s why we knew 2020 called for a new recognition program, something to complement our annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country.”
