ATLANTA, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Randstad, the third largest HR services and staffing company in the U.S., is pleased to announce it has earned a spot on The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's list of Top Workplaces. Randstad is listed within the top 10 large employer category for the second consecutive year.
The Top Workplaces list is determined solely by employee feedback from an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm focused on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States.
According to the Top Workplaces survey, Randstad ranked highest in comparison to its peer group in leaving employees feeling well-informed about important decisions, encouraging new ideas and operating by strong values and ethics. In addition, Randstad employees cited high confidence that the company is going in the right direction and, most importantly, felt that they are genuinely appreciated, part of something meaningful and confident about their own future at Randstad.
"We are delighted to once again be recognized among Atlanta's top employers. As a strategic HR partner to thousands of clients across the country, we believe strongly in the power of employee engagement in driving superior outcomes, so we are particularly honored to receive recognition for our efforts in engaging our own internal staff," said Linda Galipeau, CEO of Randstad North America. "This designation truly reflects our corporate culture, core values and belief in building a work environment that fosters our employees' success."
Galipeau continued, "We know that our employees drive the high level of service we provide to our clients and the thousands of professionals and job seekers with whom we work. We strive to create programs and opportunities that allow our employees to grow with us as we continue to provide innovative, industry-leading HR services and staffing solutions that our customers depend on. I am pleased to share this recognition with everyone who makes Randstad an exceptional company."
Randstad is proud to call Atlanta home to its U.S.-based headquarters, after planting roots in the thriving city over a decade ago. The choice to make Atlanta our first location in our International expansion into the U.S. was based on its history of being an economically strong and diverse region, among many other factors. Since then, we are pleased to have made our own contributions to the welfare of the city, driving economic and job growth for the area. Today, we employ nearly 800 internal workers through our over 50 locations across the metro Atlanta area, while facilitating the employment of thousands of workers at companies throughout Atlanta.
