Prep Network named one of 2020’s ‘Best Employers in Sports’ by FOS

Prep Network received national recognition this week, as one of 25 companies named to Front Office Sports’ Best Employers in Sports list. Information about the award was included in the FOS release.

Established in 2019, the Best Employers in Sports Award presented by FEVO, recognizes organizations across the sports industry that are doing the best for their employees. Whether it’s great leadership, a focus on diversity and inclusion, a good work-life balance, or even how they’ve handled the impact of COVID-19, the Best Employers in Sports Award looks to recognize organizations who do right by their employees even in the most uncertain of times.

“It’s an honor to be included on this list, but it’s also a testament to the quality of people on our team and the culture we’ve built at Prep Network,” Co-founder and CEO Jake Phillips said. “It’s especially meaningful given the challenges of 2020 as we have been forced to continuously adapt to remain a leader in our industry.”

The award was given based on responses from open-ended survey questions given to 400 companies across the country and 25 companies —  the top 5% — were named to the list. Included in the list are companies from a variety of industries such as professional sports teams (Atlanta Hawks, Orlando City Soccer Club), event operators (Peach Bowl, Inc), fitness devices (WHOOP), and more.
