Basking Ridge, NJ – March 5, 2018 – Collabera, a global leader in IT staffing and professional services, has been named one of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Best Staffing Firms to Work For — for the eighth year in a row.
SIA, a global advisor on contingent work, presents the award annually in recognition of employers who create an engaging and supportive work environment. The winners were recognized at SIA’s 28th annual Executive Forum North America in late February at the JW Marriott in Austin.
Ashwin Rao, Collabera executive vice president, attended the forum and accepted the award on Collabera’s behalf.
“Any firm can claim to be invested in their employees’ success and happiness, but SIA’s awards are based directly on employee feedback — and that means so much to us as a company,” Rao said. “We’re delighted to be recognized for our ongoing efforts to seek new ways to engage our employees.”
Nearly 400 firms submitted to this year’s program, conducted in conjunction with Omaha-based Quantum Workplace. Each firm’s internal employees completed a 40-question online survey measuring 10 key engagement categories, from teamwork and trust in senior leaders to effectiveness of managers and compensation and benefits.
Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
SIA places a heavy emphasis on the importance of 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 (Collabera falls into the 501+ employees category).
“These high-performing companies stand out for their quality of leadership and as organizations that prioritize culture and employee engagement,” said Barry Asin, President of SIA. “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.”
