LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vaco Los Angeles, specializing in accounting, tax, audit, and technology consultant placement and executive search, today announced it was named on the 2013 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles list by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group. Vaco has been in the top 10 for the last five years, with three number one distinctions. The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program honored Vaco Los Angeles as number two in the small company category by assessing an independent survey of all employees (75% of the ranking) and evaluating a written company assessment (25% of the ranking). Vaco Los Angeles took the number two spot as a result of its unique company culture that enables optimal flexibility and employee autonomy, including flexible hours, part-time and full-time positions, and telecommuting.
"The reason my partners and I founded Vaco Los Angeles was to allow our staff the freedom to work creatively in servicing our clients' hiring needs. The scheduling flexibility that is the norm at Vaco is certainly not the norm in a large corporate environment. One of our significant goals is to help our candidates and consultants find interesting, successful careers, while meeting personal goals and responsibilities – true career/life integration. In doing so, our clients get the best talent and everybody wins. Being named on the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles list for the last five years running is a true affirmation of our mission and testament that trust, commitment and results go hand in hand," said Frances Moreno, managing partner, Vaco Los Angeles.
The innovative culture of Vaco Los Angeles was also featured in a Fox 11 news segment "Saving the California Dream" last year. This culture of personal responsibility has led to great retention and service to its candidates, consultants and clients. The performance and results show as Vaco was also named in several categories, including Best Employer and Fastest-growing Company, for the Stevie Awards in both 2012 and 2013.
The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles ranking is based on the results of employee engagement and satisfaction surveys that consist of over 70 questions within eight core focus areas: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
