LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vaco Los Angeles has been named the #1 Small Employer on the 2014 "Best Places to Work in Los Angeles" list, becoming the only company ever to achieve four #1 rankings on the prestigious list. Creating a Best Place to Work helps Vaco, a leading provider specializing in finance, accounting, and IT interim consultant placement and executive search, attract and retain the best talent for its clients, and that translates to improved profitability, productivity, and competitive edge. The annual program was created by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group, and Magaly Gomez accepted the award on behalf of Vaco at the ceremony on August 19.
The survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county's economy, workforce, and businesses.
"This unprecedented four-time #1 win means a tremendous amount to our team and our clients as it leads directly to our ability to attract and retain the most highly skilled and experienced professionals in finance, accounting, and technology for placement for our clients," said Frances Moreno, founder and managing partner, Vaco Los Angeles. "Our success in the recruitment and retention of top talent translates to the bottom line, as demonstrated by the fact that this year has been our most profitable since our inception. The Best Places to Work program requires stringent standards be met and is extremely competitive, especially in a market the size of Los Angeles, so our continued success in the program is quite a high honor."
Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation.
"The road to profitability is through the retention of high-quality talent," said Moreno. "Every member of our team believes in our core values, the secret to our success – Solution, Expertise, Care, Results, Enjoy, Teamwork (SECRET).
