3rd annual list recognizes 241 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit
Hayden5 has been named to the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in both the Advertising and Media categories. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 13), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “Inc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them.”
Adds Hayden5 Co-Founder/CEO, Milos Silber, “For almost fourteen years, we’ve been striving to build a company that manifests our fundamental values around how video should be created, and that is all grounded in organization. When you’re organized, you can be creative, you can scale, and you can deliver consistency. We’re happy to be recognized in both of these award categories. ”
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, 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 55 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
