Forbes Names AlphaBEST A 2018 Best Employer For New Grads

September 21, 2018

LEWISVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 21, 2018--Forbes named AlphaBEST Education, a before and after school enrichment company serving 25,000+ students across 11 states, a Best Employer For New Grads. AlphaBEST is ranked #121 of 250 companies included on the list. Other companies recognized include LinkedIn, JetBlue Airways, and Google.

AlphaBEST was the only after school enrichment company to be named among the top 200 companies on the list.

“We’re incredibly proud to be recognized as a Forbes Best Employer For New Grads,” said Judy Nee, CEO of AlphaBEST, which employs more than 1,800 employees. “We work to develop curriculum that sets the bar within the world of after school, but without amazing employees to deliver that curriculum, we fall short. We know recruiting – and keeping – top talent is key for us to continue to bring best-in-class programs to our school district partners and families across the country.”

This is the first year Forbes has issued its Best Employers For New Grads list, partnering with Statista to anonymously survey 10,000 Americans with less than a decade of professional experience who work for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Survey participants were asked to rank companies on criteria including salary, how likely they’d be to recommend the organization to others, and working conditions, and they were also encouraged to nominate other employers within their industry to be considered for the list.
