SIA Names Best Staffing Firms to Work For

Winners Honored at 26th Annual Executive Forum

Mountain View, California – February 15, 2017 – Winners of the 2017 Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards were announced today by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions. The winners were recognized at the 26th annual Staffing Industry Analysts’ Executive Forum North America, being held February 13-16th at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA. The Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards are sponsored by Monster Worldwide, Inc.

The winners represent companies who scored in the top quartile in each of the contest categories and the Grand Prize Winners reflect the organizations with the highest scores. CHG Healthcare took the leading spot for North American firms with over 500 employees, a new category in this year’s ranking. Aya Healthcare led for firms with 201-500 employees; ALKU ranked highest for 51-200 employees; The Goal scored at the top for firms 21- 50 employees; and Lighthouse Management Group, took first position for firms with 10-20 employees. Akraya was named Grand Prize Winner in the Best Staffing Firm to Temp for Category. Winners were also announced for UK staffing firms.

“This year’s winners lead the industry forward each day, in their empowerment of people and through their commitment to the organizational values and vision that drive employee engagement and business success,” said Barry Asin, President of SIA. “We congratulate each of these firms on their top performance and strong workplace culture.”

Approximately 300 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, NE-based company. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete a 40-question online survey that measured 10 key engagement categories focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits.  There is no charge for participation and companies completing the survey receive a report highlighting their firm’s results.

“Monster is proud to once again sponsor these awards, which highlight the staffing industry’s commitment to fostering workplaces where employees feel valued by their employer and leadership, and connected to the company mission and successes,” said Jim Lanzalotto, Monster’s Senior Vice President of Staffing and Health Care. "This year’s winners are shining examples of great workplaces - what we at Monster strive for across our industry."

In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of employee participation, based on their total number of employees. Companies were ranked in each size category according to their overall score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
