Brightstar Corp. continues to receive accolades in the telecommunications space

Brightstar Corp. continues to shine as a trailblazer in business circles. The firm earned a well-deserved spot in a list of the Best Midsize Employers in America for 2019.

The list, which was recently announced by Forbes Media included prominent players, such as Airbnb, The Aerospace Corporation, PCL Construction, Aera Energy, Nintendo, and Hyundai. Brightstar came in at number 146 out of the 500 companies shortlisted for the awards.

This accolade demonstrates Brightstar's commitment to professionalism and providing real value to its employees.

Making the list

Companies nominated for the list provide the country's best midsize working conditions for employees. They earn a place on the list following a comprehensive survey conducted in approximately 1,000 locations. Over 50,000 employees participated in the survey conducted in 2019.

Forbes Media and Statista, a prominent market research company with a global presence, handle the survey and the announcement of the well-deserving companies. The survey provides an in-depth analysis of working conditions and employee satisfaction levels in various businesses across the United States.

Statista has many years of experience in conducting anonymous surveys involving thousands of employees. As part of the survey in 2019, employees provided answers to approximately 35 questions on work-related topics.

The detailed questions helped provide clear insights into employee satisfaction and working conditions offered by midsize employers across the United States. The approach made it easier for the analysts to make accurate decisions around the employers in the country.


Analysts determined the quality of working conditions and compensation based on wide-ranging criteria. In turn, employees provided answers to questions relating to salary expectations, perceptions around company image, the potential for growth, and skills development opportunities.

The questionnaire also required respondents to provide feedback on whether they can recommend an employer to others as a career opportunity.

The detailed approach associated with the compilation of this list translates to wider recognition and respect in the industry. Hence, the inclusion of Brightstar Corp. is a significant achievement for the award-winning firm.

Kudos for Brightstar Corp.

Brightstar managed to form part of the top one-third of the 500 listed companies. It employs more than 3,500 workers and most of them provided positive feedback to survey questions regarding working conditions at the firm.

The news of the company's spot on the list triggered celebrations throughout the organization. The company's Chief Executive Officer, Rod Millar, attributed the achievement to the considerable effort put into human resources management.

Millar noted that 2019 saw many changes at the company and praised the collaborative spirit of the entire team. He added that his organization is working tirelessly to recruit and retain the best talent available on the job market. This comes at a time when the job market in the United States is favoring the employees.

Founded in 1997, Brightstar has traveled an eventful journey to becoming an award-winning firm and one of America's best employers. The business grew at a phenomenal rate over the years thanks to the value placed in its employees.

The entity transformed itself from a regional distributor of mobile phones to a leader in device lifecycle management services. It is no wonder that the business attracted the interest of SoftBank Group, which recently acquired it. The development transformed Brightstar Corp. into a wholly-owned subsidiary.

The company manages its global operations from its head offices in Miami, Florida. Its employees are proud to form part of an expanding business that is active in various states across the United States and other parts of the world.

Brightstar's mission is to make the world more mobile by providing innovative solutions. It serves customers in more than 50 countries. In 2019, BV Rating nominated Brightstar for the Best In Class Award, which added another accolade to the firm's impressive track record.
