24 Feb Staffing Industry Analysts Names Optomi one of the Best Staffing Firms to Work For® 2016
During its Executive Forum award ceremony yesterday, Staffing Industry Analysts announced Optomi as a winner of the prestigious award “2016 Best Staffing Firms to Work For®”. Optomi’s first award occurred in its first year of business. Having been recognized all subsequent years, Optomi is unique in achieving this status.
“We believe corporate culture has a strong influence on a company’s performance. We foster an environment that allows our team to perform at their highest level. No matter how large Optomi becomes, we are committed to growing an organization worthy of the distinction ‘The Best Staffing Firms to Work For® every year”, says Michael Winwood, Optomi’s CEO.
Nearly 182 staffing firms took part in the survey given on behalf of Staffing Industry Analysts by an independent research firm specializing in employee engagement. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete a 40-question online survey that measured 10 key engagement categories including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits.
Optomi’s company culture is one that was carefully designed and implemented. Its core values encourage every employee’s business interaction with clients and candidates to be described as: passionate, dedicated, innovative, unique, connected and genuine. The firm is focused on an organic growth model, hiring exceptional talent and promoting top performers into leadership positions. Optomi is regularly expanding to incremental new markets. The company’s current markets include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Orange County, Baltimore/DC and most recently Charlotte.
“We attribute our growth to a strong company culture that values passion, innovation and dedication among others”, says COO Todd Black. “We’re genuine in our relationships and that’s a unique way to do business in this industry.”
“The Best Staffing Firms to Work For®” program recognizes staffing firms that understand the importance of a supportive working environment with opportunities for personal and professional growth that encourages an individual to bring passion and energy to the office each and every day.” said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Analysts.
