CEO Rich Fairbank has transformed this banking company into a financial services powerhouse through a growing affair with the world of tech and innovation. Capital One Labs, located in San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C, boast mini start-up environments, hosting hackathons and providing funding for a range of dreams and ideas. One lab recently partnered with Kiva, a non-profit micro-financing platform, which led to associates donating their reward points to entrepreneurs in need around the world. Even executives are letting down that old buttoned-up attitude: Failure University allows employees to learn directly from their leader’s mistakes. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
