SIA Awards 2017 | Grand Prize Winners!
24 Feb 2017
The 26th Annual Staffing Analysts Executive Forum took place on February 15th 2017 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.
Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) are the global adviser on staffing and workforce solutions and this event is held to recognise the winners of the '2017 Best Staffing Firms to Work For'.
The winners represent companies who scored in the top quartile in each of the contest categories and the Grand Prize Winners reflect the organisations with the highest scores. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete a 40-question online survey that measured 10 key engagement categories focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits.
As well as recognising all of the North American company winners, two UK staffing firm winners were also honored and awarded.
“This year’s winners lead the industry forward each day, in their empowerment of people and through their commitment to the organizational values and vision that drive employee engagement and business success,” said Barry Asin, President of SIA. "We congratulate each of these firms on their top performance and strong workplace culture".
Our Non-Executive Director, Miles Hunt, was in attendance at the forum last week and was absolutely thrilled to report back our much anticipated result, especially as we had been fortunate to have won 'Best Staffing Firms to Work For (Up to 50 Employees) 2016'.
Not only had we won, but we were awarded as Grand Prize Winner for:
'Best Staffing Firms to Work For - UK (Up to 50 Employees) 2017'
"For us to have won this award two years in a row really is a testament to the unique culture we have here at UR, something we're incredibly proud of and don't want to lose as the company grows" - Chris Jackson, Founding Director of Understanding Recruitment
