Snagajob, a provider of workforce solutions for employers, many within the restaurant industry, took the No. 1 position on Entrepreneur.com and the Great Place to Work Institute's Top 10 Best Small Companies to Work for in America. It has been on the top 10 list for the past four years.
Snagajob, which was selected among hundreds of small companies (50 to 250 employees) competing for the best place to work honor from the Great Place to Work Institute (the same firm that compiles the annual FORTUNE list), was judged based on employee surveys, an in-depth questionnaire and factors such as credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
"The foundation of what we look for in 'Snaggers' – our employees – is great people who love doing great work together as a team," said Shawn Boyer, co-founder and CEO of Snagajob. "I'm incredibly proud of this honor especially because it's based on employee feedback. This award is further validation that our maniacal focus on people and culture is the right approach, particularly as we grow at a rapid pace and have doubled our size in the past year."
The companies featured on the list are extraordinary in their practices and achievements, according to Susan Lucas-Conwell, CEO of Great Place to Work.
"Their leaders recognize the value of creating great workplaces and the competitive edge it provides them," she said.
Among other national honors Snagajob has received, Boyer was named the 2008 National Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The company currently employs more than 300 people, and applicants can view open jobs at www.snagajob.com/careers. (At the time of the GPTW award submission, Snagajob qualified for the small business category.)
