The “Best Staffing Firms to Work For” program had five grand prize winners in North America based on company size — from 10 to 20 internal employees to a category for 501-plus internal employees.

While there were five categories for North American firms, there were two categories for UK firms: 10 to 50 internal employees and 51-plus internal employees.

For the “Best Staffing Firms to Temp For” contest (for external workers), there was one category. There was a top winner, but all firms with a Net Promoter Score of 50 or more were finalist winners.

This year, 222 staffing firms registered for the program, which, as in previous years, was conducted for Staffing Industry Analysts by Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, Neb.-based company.

Internal employees at each firm taking part were asked to complete a 40-question online survey that measures six key engagement categories focusing on items including communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics and trust in leadership.

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 in each size category were ranked according to their overall composite score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.

The Best Staffing Firms to Temp For were ranked based on their Net Promoter Score, which was calculated based on temps’ responses to questions like how likely it is they would recommend this staffing firm to a friend.
