St. Louis, MO: Fast Company announced today its second annual Brands That Matter list, honoring organizations that communicate and demonstrate brand purpose. These companies and nonprofits have achieved relevance through cultural impact and social engagement and authentically communicated their missions and ideals. Inclusively, a workforce inclusion platform that empowers employers with the insights, access, training and support they need to attract and retain previously hidden talent, was honored in the Workplace category.

Inclusively joins 145 brands, including large multinational conglomerates, small-but-mighty companies, and nonprofits, like Colgate, Lowe’s, Mastercard, Aflac and WSP. All 145 have found an ability to forge an emotional connection with customers, whether leading on environmental issues or pop culture, engaging B2B customers, or responding meaningfully to current events.
“This year, we’ve expanded the Brands That Matter program to evaluate honorees in the context of how they matter within the category in which they compete for people’s attention or loyalty. The result is a wide-ranging list of honorees that are making their mark on culture, and through social impact,” said Brendan Vaughan, Fast Company’s editor-in-chief.
“We are honored to be one of Fast Company’s Brands That Matter, and we’re excited to be recognized by the magazine for a second time in 2022,” said Charlotte Dales, Co-Founder & CEO, Inclusively. “We are very proud to be able to connect employers to incredible talent and watch them both achieve success. This recognition validates and celebrates our goal of building truly inclusive, diverse workplace cultures.”
Fast Company editors judged each brand on relevancy, cultural impact, ingenuity, and business impact to compile the list.
The November issue of Fast Company magazine is available online now and will be on newsstands beginning November 1, 2022.
Inclusively’s workforce inclusion platform empowers employers with the insights, access, training and support they need to attract and retain previously hidden talent. Employers obtain aggregated access to the fragmented network of nonprofits and training programs that support diverse talent. Candidates are submitted for jobs with valuable data around their accommodation requests, enabling companies to set up an inclusive experience at the front door. When companies accommodate candidates and set them up for success, they have higher retention rates and increased overall productivity.
