Unquestionably, we know that our associates are our greatest asset, so we work to empower them with the tools they need to thrive, as well as provide a failsafe environment that gives them the freedom to try new things.
Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) December 15, 2009
Staffing Industry Analysts has named LocumTenens.com, a leading provider of temporary physician and CRNA staffing, as the #4 Best Staffing Firm to Work For on their inaugural 2009 list.
“We are proud to be recognized on this list because it highlights how much we care about investing in our associates,” said R. Shane Jackson president of LocumTenens.com. “Unquestionably, we know that our associates are our greatest asset, so we work to empower them with the tools they need to thrive, as well as provide a failsafe environment that gives them the freedom to try new things.”
Created by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) with Valtera Corporation, a firm specializing in measuring employee engagement, SIA’s Best Staffing Firms to Work For 2009 rankings were based on two components: a company overview survey completed by a company representative and an internal employee survey. These two parts were designed to capture both Human Resource strategy and practices, as well as the opinions and perspectives of internal employees.
According to SIA, they chose to focus on companies' ability to develop "engaged" internal employees, as opposed to "satisfied" employees because “higher levels of engagement [are linked] with return on assets, profitability and shareholder value,” said Bill Macey, CEO of Valtera.
SIA also identified the ten top traits consistently found among the companies making their list. These traits include: hiring the best, clear communication, empowering employees, great benefits, emphasis on overall employee health, extensive training, encouraging career pathing, employee recognition, and overall company leadership.
SIA published an overview of their survey results in the December issue of SI Review complete with an article profiling the top 10 companies, which are available online at http://www.staffingindustry.com.
