Professional Placement Resources, LLC

#1 - Best Small Workplaces

INDUSTRY: Professional Services - Staffing & Recruitment
WEBSITE: www.pprtmg.com

Since most of the work at this small, Florida-based staffing firm is done over the phone, casual dress and sandy feet are acceptable attire for employees, who spend workdays overlooking the ocean from a beach-side office – where the CEO has been known to lead a session of morning low-tide jumping jacks. In addition to sunshine-provided vitamin D, Professional Placement Resources employees have plenty of other ways to stay healthy, including weekly deliveries of organic fruit, health screenings, personal trainers, and lunchtime nutrition lectures. PPR also keeps its employees happy with a month’s worth of employee appreciation events every year that include luncheons, bingo, and a sand-castle building contest. The culture of appreciation here starts at the top. Cofounder and CEO Dwight Cooper sits in a cubicle that’s open to everyone, and certain Thursdays are designated as "Thank you Thursdays,” where employees send thank you cards to coworkers and customers. PPR also offers unique benefits, including unlimited paid time off for vacation or sick days, 40 days of maternity and adoption leave at full pay (or a week of paternity leave), and monthly profit sharing bonuses regardless of rank.
