"Each award winner earned this honor by standing out in a group of very impressive companies and recognize their employees are a company's most valuable asset," said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Analysts. "Their achievement is a direct result of each company's relentless focus on attracting top talent and making their company an inspiring place where their employees can flourish and achieve their goals."
Nearly 140 staffing firms took part in the program this year, conducted for Staffing Industry Analysts by Quantum Workplace, an independent research firm specializing in employee engagement. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete a 40-question online survey that measured 10 key engagement categories including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. The survey was open to any staffing firm operating in the U.S., U.K. or Canada and was confidential and anonymous.
"The staffing industry works tirelessly to provide clients with top-quality talent which, in turn, breeds top-quality workplaces. It is inspiring to see these firms leading by example," said Matthew O'Connor, Monster's senior vice president of U.S. Enterprise and Staffing. "We are proud to recognize their continued efforts in fostering a positive work environment for their hardworking employees."
In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of employee participation, based on total number of employees. Responses from each question, of each completed survey, were compiled and evaluated. Companies were ranked in each size category according to their overall composite score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
