Boonton, NJ (PRWEB) June 28, 2006
DigitalGrit has been named among the top 50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America. The list was announced on June 26th before an audience of more than 12,000 at the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM) 58th Annual Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C.
DigitalGrit, which ranked 21st among small companies, is a full-service interactive marketing firm headquartered in Boonton, NJ with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC. The company is dedicated to helping leading companies realize the full potential of the Internet to build their brands, increase sales, improve processes and reduce costs. Co-founders Dan Lynn and Scott Goldthwaite represented DigitalGrit at the ceremony.
“We are particularly proud to be the only interactive agency who is a leader in the Search Engine Marketing industry on the list. That we’ve achieved this honor is proof positive that you can be a ‘Best Place to Work’ even when you are experiencing substantial growth,” said Lynn. “Our commitment to our employees and customers is second to none. As a result, we've been able to attract and retain the industry's best talent and work with many of the World's greatest brands. We are excited to continue our growth and make DigitalGrit an even better place to work.”
Added Goldthwaite, “We have to offer our thanks – and congratulations – to the whole DigitalGrit team. They truly are the ‘best of the best’ and we are incredibly proud of them and lucky to work with them on a day-to-day basis.”
This is the third year of the list, which ranks the top 25 small and top 25 medium-sized companies in America that use smart people management strategies to develop successful organizations with highly productive and satisfied workforces. The organizations, ranging in size from 50 to 999 employees, were announced by SHRM and selected and ranked by the Great Place to Work® Institute (GPTW.) The results were based on a randomly distributed employee opinion survey. Each company evaluated was given a score based on employees' responses to a detailed questionnaire about the organizations' workplace cultures.
Stories about the winning organizations will appear in the July issue of HR Magazine, the Society's flagship publication with a circulation of 200,000 (available at http://www.shrm.org/hrmagazine). The winning organizations will also be listed on the GPTW web site at http://www.greatplacetowork.com.
"Small and medium-sized companies make up the majority of the American economy and workforce," said SHRM President and CEO Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR. "These winning organizations demonstrate that making effective use of the workforce is key to their success, and they must be recognized for their accomplishments."
Great Place to Work® Institute cofounder, Robert Levering, said, "These companies stand out because their employees find them to be places where they can trust the management, have pride in their work and have fun at work. Other companies have much to learn about how to both be productive and do right by their people."
