3rd annual list recognizes 241 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit
BOSTON (December 6, 2022) -- CareAcademy, the care enablement platform, has been named to the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the Education category for a second consecutive year. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 13), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “Inc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them.”
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 55 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year.

More than 350,000 learners have completed more than 2 million classes with CareAcademy, and the company is on track to train 1 million caregivers by the end of 2023.
“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as among the best in education for a second year,” said Helen Adeosun, founder and CEO of CareAcademy. “Our team cares so deeply about our country’s unsung heroes - the caregivers. Whether they are professional or family caregivers, everything we do is to celebrate and elevate those providing care at home – to boost their confidence, increase their knowledge and expand their capacity to care.
