About Us

People First Companies is the manifestation of 5 years of work after our founder, Stephen Angel, had a vision. Stephen’s vision was of an entity that would promote three pillars of business practices: Fair Compensation, Flexibility, and Purpose.

That vision has become an entity to promote and recognize companies that follow the three pillars of doing business and give consumers a way to identify these businesses. We are sure that consumers will support our member companies.

Mike Bayes joined Stephen Angel in August of 2022 to bring the vision to reality. The co-founders seek to create a positive realignment in the business community and consumer buying habits.
