We’re honored to receive formal recognition as an amazing place to work because it shows our core values aren’t just lip service.


“Prioritizing the success of our teammates is paramount to our work. We invest in the career paths of our people and ensure everyone has the balance they’re looking for. People need opportunities for personal growth and financial comfort to be happy. We keep our promises to our team, and we promote a culture of ownership,” said Ben Petter, President of Avara.


Avara knows that embracing a culture that prioritizes relationships requires a commitment to support at every layer.


A big part of what makes us different is embedded in our founding philosophy toward keeping our promises and building on the strength of our relationships. From the day Avara was founded, we acknowledged that many of our competitors didn’t put their people first. We wanted to change that, so we created a platform that prioritized supporting the success of each member of our team. Especially in these times of economic turbulence, we’d like to acknowledge the incredible power of the competitive marketplace, which encourages innovation. We compete for quality teammates, and we work to build an exceptional workplace that attracts the best talent.added Petter.
