Whitaker Companies recognized as one of SIA’s 2024 Best Staffing Firms To Work For

 

Houston, Texas  – March 27, 2024 – Global research and advisory firm Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) announced winners of the 2024 Best Staffing Firms to Work For today during its Executive Forum North America conference. Whitaker was recognized for the third time as a winner in the North America category.  

 

“We are once again delighted to receive this award,” said Bruce Whitaker, President of The Whitaker Companies. “How our employees feel about where we’re going and how we’re getting there as a corporation is the key to our success. We couldn’t make it without the partnership and buy-in we get from all of them.”

 

Since 1983, Whitaker has built a strong reputation in the staffing industry. Our specialized divisions, Whitaker IT, Whitaker Technical, and Whitaker Professional, provide customized staffing solutions across a wide range of sectors. We believe in fostering a transparent, challenging, and upbeat work environment that feels like a family, where everyone’s unique talents are valued.  To attract and retain top talent, we offer unique perks like potential company ownership through a shareholder program and a flexible remote work environment, which we’ve successfully implemented since 2017.

 

“We’re thrilled to be honored with this award once more. Our team’s enthusiasm for our direction and approach is the cornerstone of our success. We truly appreciate their partnership and dedication – they’re the driving force behind our achievements”, said Patricia Simpson, Vice President of The Whitaker Companies.

 

Over 400 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, NE-based company. Internal employees at each participating firm were asked to complete an approximately 40-question online survey that measures six key engagement categories focusing on items including communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics and trust in leadership. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.

 

“2023 was a challenging year for companies adjusting to post-pandemic conditions, including a tight job market, inflationary pressures, the need for sales growth and the importance of operational efficiency. SIA’s Best Staffing Firms To Work For are shining examples of companies who prioritized and maximized their employee engagement as reported by their own employees,” said SIA President Ursula Williams. “Congratulations to our 2024 honorees for fostering fantastic company cultures and keeping their employees excited to come to work each day.”

 

All winning companies are listed on the Best Staffing Firms To Work/Temp For website with profiles for grand prize winners. The winning companies are also featured in the March/April issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine.
