Willow Grove, PA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
The ability for organizations to attract top performing talent, and create a culture that will allow individuals to perform at the highest of levels, are factors that are becoming increasingly important for employers looking to compete in this post–recession era. The pharmaceutical and life science industries are embracing this trend, as the sector increasingly focuses on the importance of employee-fit within the fabric of a company, which will have real results on the organization's development and the innovation of new drugs and technology. Klein Hersh International (KHI), a leading executive recruitment firm in the life sciences industry, specializes in helping clients recruit industry leading candidates for their organizations. In fact, KHI is such an expert in this area that over the last 16 years, the company has successfully attracted and retained over 30 executive recruiters for its office by way of its unique culture. This accomplishment has recently placed the firm on the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Tenth Annual “Best Places to Work Awards” list. KHI will be presented with this honor at an awards ceremony on October 9, 2014, at the Sonesta Philadelphia Hotel.
“The Philadelphia Business Journal’s award is a tremendous honor that not only recognizes our company’s culture as one of the best places to work, but also as a local leader in the life sciences industry," said KHI Chief Executive Officer Robert Klein. “At KHI, our employees are among our greatest assets and we are passionately committed to providing an environment that reflects our core values and culture."
Philadelphia Business Journal’s research partner, Quantum Workplace, tabulated the results of thousands of online surveys completed by employees to establish the rank order that will be revealed for the very first time at the awards ceremony. Common themes among top companies focused on work-life balance; respect and caring for employees; recognition of accomplishments; feeling empowered; good teamwork and commitment to community.
Klein added, “Just like we do for our clients, when hiring for our own firm, we look for people that will thrive and enjoy working in our environment. KHI’s linear organizational structure and close-knit nature sets us apart, and has greatly led to the overall success of the company and today’s distinction as one of the best places to work.”
