SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 19, 2013 -- Global workplace consulting firm, Great Place to Work®, revealed today the 2013 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published by FORTUNE magazine. Now in its tenth year, the list recognizes the top 50 small- and medium-sized companies in the United States with outstanding workplace cultures.
The past two years’ lists have seen record participation. Great Place to Work attributes the increase to the value companies see in getting recognized for their company culture.
“Increasingly, companies of all sizes are seeing the importance of differentiating themselves in the hypercompetitive talent market through their culture,” said Great Place to Work CEO, China Gorman. “Savvy companies rely on the strength of their workplace cultures to attract candidates who share their vision and values to build a workforce invested in the same outcomes.” Gorman explains: “While getting recognition like this is an important part of these companies’ employer brands, which is a critical recruiting strategy, being a great workplace is also built into the fabric of these organizations, it’s who they are, how they conduct their business and how they treat their people.”
In addition to earning a spot on the Great Place to Work list, winning companies also received a profile onGreat Rated!™, a new online resource for jobseekers powered by the Great Place to Work© Model for its rankings and reviews.
The 2013 List
Topping this year’s list are two companies who have been on the list since its inception: Professional Placement Resources, LLC in the small category, while ACUITY maintains its number one position in the medium category for the fifth consecutive year.
Divided into two categories, Small (50-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees), the 2013 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list process applies Great Place to Work's unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
