We are extremely proud of the entire Gibbs S3 team for creating a workplace where each team member feels valued, and is invested in achieving the team's goals."
Staffing Industry Analysts used Quantum Workplace, an independent research firm specializing in employee engagement, to conduct the survey. 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. Companies were ranked in each size category according to their overall score and winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
"We commend each winner for their leadership and commitment to creating a supportive environment for their employees," said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Analysts. "We are excited to announce the winners of the Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards and congratulate them on their accomplishments in setting a high standard for the staffing industry."
