Firms Honored at 28th Annual Executive Forum

Mountain View, California – February 27, 2019 – Winners of the 2019 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 SIA’s 28th annual Executive Forum North America, being held February 25–28th  at the JW Marriott in Austin, TX. The Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards are sponsored by Monster Worldwide, Inc.

The winners comprise those companies who scored in the top quartile in each of the contest categories, and the Grand Prize Winners reflect the highest scoring organizations. Vaco took the leading spot for North American firms with over 500 employees. Fusion Medical Staffing led for firms with 201-500 employees; LiquidAgents Healthcare ranked highest for 51-200 employees; Health Provides Choice scored at the top for firms 21- 50 employees; and Austin Major Group took first position for firms with 10-20 employees. LABUR was named as the Grand Prize Winner in the Best Staffing Firm to Temp For Category. For the UK, Charlton Morris landed the leading position for over 50 Employees for the second consecutive year, while Aquent secured the Grand Prize for firms under 50 employees.

“Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Best Staffing Firm to Work For Awards,” said Barry Asin, President of SIA. “These high-performing companies stand out for their quality of leadership and as organizations that prioritize culture and employee engagement. There is a strong correlation between employee engagement and growth. These firms have made that connection and use it to excel in their business and drive outstanding results.”

Approximately 400 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 honored to celebrate the staffing companies receiving this award in recognition of their best-in-class leadership,” said Penny Queller, Monster’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Talent Solutions. "These companies set the standard for excellence in the staffing industry and are rewarded with a workforce that is committed, engaged and passionate about not only their personal success, but also the success of their company. At Monster, we know how important it is to hire employees that are the right fit, and we’re committed to providing solutions that enable staffing firms to not only do this for their customers, but also for themselves.”

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.
