ATLANTA, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Steady today announced that it has been recognized on Fast Company's inaugural Brands That Matter list, honoring brands that have achieved relevance through cultural impact and social engagement and authentically communicated their missions and ideals.
Steady's platform is used by nearly 4 million hourly workers to take control of their data and reach their maximum earnings potential, helping users earn an additional $5,500 per year on average. Over the past year, their work has included the Steady Together initiative, which distributed $3.5 million in emergency cash grants to workers who had lost their incomes as a result of the pandemic, representing one of the country's most comprehensive efforts by a private company to provide tangible relief and resources to workers. Steady is also working with Mayors for a Guaranteed Income to provide the data infrastructure and distribution system for guaranteed income programs in more than 20 cities around the United States.
"Our goal is to improve the lives of 1099 and hourly workers by removing barriers to earning," said Adam Roseman, CEO of Steady. "We are honored by this recognition — and will continue to work in partnership with state and local governments, community organizations, and advocates around the country to help our members secure financial stability for themselves and their families."
The final Brands That Matter list, which includes large multinational conglomerates as well as small companies and nonprofits, recognizes 95 brands that give people compelling reasons to care about them—and offer inspiration for others to buy in. All 95 have found an ability to forge an emotional connection with customers, whether leading on the environment or pop culture, engaging B2B customers, or responding meaningfully to current events.
"Fast Company is excited to highlight companies and organizations that have built brands with deep meaning and connections to the customers they serve. At a time when consumers are holding companies to very high standards, businesses have much to learn from these brands that have garnered respect and trust," says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company.
Fast Company's November issue honoring Steady is available online now.
