According to Comparably, a compensation, culture and career monitoring website, Ytel was ranked for Best Leadership and CEOs for Diversity in the small to medium size business category. “When you have leaders that are focused on issues (of) inclusion and diversity, and especially when they have a diverse background themselves, I think … employees feel rewarded and empowered,” said Jason Nazar, CEO of Comparably, in an interview with USA TODAY.

Ytel ranks in the top five percent of 135 local companies in the Los Angeles area and in the top 15 percent of more than 400 similar sized companies in the United States.
