SAN DIEGO, CA - May 10, 2022 –Trust & Will, the leading digital estate planning platform, announced today it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list, scoring a 95.79 out of a possible 100. The list is the result of a comprehensive survey and measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in-person or virtual. 

This is the second consecutive year that Trust & Will was recognized as an Inc. Best Workplace. Trust & Will makes it easy, affordable, and secure to create an estate plan online, offering legally valid documents designed and approved by estate planning attorneys to adhere to individual state guidelines. Since 2017, more than 300,000 families have created a digital estate plan using the platform.  

The startup implemented a remote-first policy for employees in March 2020, prioritizing a positive work-life balance and flexible working schedule. Despite being fully remote, the company is headquartered and retains offices in San Diego, providing a hybrid work option for those who prefer to work in the office.

“I’m honored that Trust & Will is recognized as a Best Workplace for the second year in a row, especially as we continue to grow the team remotely across dozens of states, enabling us to further achieve our mission to help every family leave their legacy,” said Cody Barbo, Founder and CEO of Trust & Will. “Our supportive team culture is the driving force behind this recognition, and I’m grateful for the positive work culture that our team members bring to their roles each day.”  

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.
