SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 6, 2020) – Premier Talent Partners has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
Founded in 1998, Premier Talent Partners is a boutique-staffing agency that has led the charge in the world of recruiting through a personalized approach of modern-day matchmaking between growing companies, and a network of high-caliber talent.
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 389 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“What makes Premier so unique is that it continues to be shaped by its core values – Excellence, Integrity, Care, Connection, and Gratitude. We feel incredibly honored to be recognized in Inc. Magazine’s list of Best Workplaces in 2020, alongside a remarkable group of fellow nominees. At our core we are an agile business, we pivot to support growth, and invest in innovation. What has remained consistent in our mission is our unwavering passion and dedication to changing lives,” said Sara Menke, Founder/CEO of Premier Talent Partners.
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
