BERWYN, Pa. (November 15, 2023) Playfly Sports, the Fan Focused and Data Driven leader in sports media, marketing and technology, is proud to share that it has received two top workplace nods based on employee-led feedback. Announced today, Front Office Sports has awarded Playfly with its first-ever Best Employers in Sports accolade, in addition to a recent Most Loved Workplace® certification via the Best Practice Institute. The Most Loved Workplace® certification also places Playfly on a list of finalists for the 2024 edition of Newsweek’s 100 Most Loved Workplaces, which will be published in the coming months.
Each of these programs evaluates workplace sentiment for organizations based on third-party survey data submitted by employees on a voluntary basis. Just three years after the company’s founding, Playfly’s people-first approach to challenging the status quo across the sports industry has yielded strong affinity from its employee base that now operates in 43 U.S. states and Canada.
“Building a supportive, diverse and passionate culture across Playfly Sports has been a leading goal of mine since day one and it’s an honor to receive formal recognition as a top employer both within our industry and from a broader standpoint,” said Playfly CEO and Founder, Michael Schreiber. “I truly believe we have the best team in the sports business industry and these awards are a direct reflection of their dedication, honesty, and commitment to building a trusted workplace.”
Front Office Sports’ 2023 Best Employers in Sports list features 30 companies operating within the sports industry with the winning organizations representing the top 15% of all sports companies that participated. In the award program’s fifth-annual installment, Playfly joins storied sports business brands such as ESPN, Fanatics, and Navigate. The full list of 2023 Best Employers in Sports can be found here.
Most Loved Workplaces® certify companies where employees are the happiest and most satisfied at work. Playfly became certified as a Most Loved Workplace based on its scores on the Love of Workplace Index™ which surveyed employees on various elements around employee satisfaction and sentiment including the level of respect, collaboration, support, and sense of belonging they feel inside the company.
