San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 22, 2011

RiseSmart, a provider of next-generation outplacement and recruitment solutions, today announced that it has been honored as one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times. RiseSmart was named one of the top 25 companies of its size in a ceremony at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Thursday night.

“As a company that is in the business of HR, we are especially proud to be ranked among the most outstanding companies in the Bay Area based on employee ratings,” said Sanjay Sathe, RiseSmart founder and CEO. “We always tell our clients that success starts with how you treat your people, from the time they are hired to the time they leave the organization. This honor demonstrates that this advice is more than talk for us; we practice what we preach.”

The Best Places to Work in the Bay Area ranking is based on a satisfaction survey of each company’s employees, with more than 100,000 employees from Bay Area companies participating. Each company’s score is determined by employee responses to questions covering a wide range of topics. While specific employee benefits are not a factor in the ranking determinations, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company’s benefits.

In addition to the Best Places to Work honor, RiseSmart was recently named a finalist for the TiE50, TiE’s annual awards program keenly contested by technology startups worldwide. Winners in that competition will be announced later this month.
